Words cannot express my thankfulness to God for Christian Science

Words cannot express my thankfulness to God for Christian Science. I had suffered for years from heart disease, pronounced incurable by the doctor. I had tried the medicines known to medical science, but with no good results. In December, 1911, I had a nervous breakdown, which was the result of poor heart action and the strong drugs that I had taken. I was under a physician's care for over ten weeks, but there was no sign of improvement. He then said that medicine would not help, that a change of climate was needed. This too, however, proved of no avail. I was becoming weaker all the time, and the doctors had no hope of my recovery.

A friend then advised me to try Christian Science, and in my condition I was willing to do so as a last resort. With less than a week's treatment I was able to walk about my room. Now I am completely cured of both nervousness and heart trouble. My life was saved through the truth as taught in Christian Science, and I am indeed grateful.
