I gladly give this testimony of what Christian Science has done for me and for my family. I tried one physician after another to get relief from what I thought was a canker in the cheek, and none seemed to know or would tell me what the trouble was. At last my husband persuaded me to see a doctor who was an old friend, and this physician told me it was a malignant growth, but said that I would be all right after an operation. In accordance with his advice I went to a specialist and was operated on, a large piece of flesh and the glands in my throat being removed; but in fourteen months I had to undergo another operation. In less than a year five different remedies were used and I came near passing on, so severe were the treatments. I had to call in a doctor from our home town for help.

Then a friend told one of my daughters that he wished I would try Christian Science. He sent me copies of the Journal and Sentinel, and said he knew I could be healed. I went to Duluth, Minnesota, for treatment, but apparently got no relief. Then I tried another practitioner. The trouble moved to the lip. My husband was getting desperate, and hearing of a specialist in Chicago advised me to consult him. As my children were heartbroken from fear that the disease might prove fatal, I did so; but in less than a year my condition seemed worse than ever. Through it all I clung to Science and Health, and took it with me wherever I went; it was my guide. I read it for over two years before I knew there was a Christian Scientist in Ashland. Then I met one, and she asked me why I did not attend the Christian Science meetings. I told my husband that if he would read the literature and go to church, I felt sure I would be healed, so he went just to please me; but it did not take him long to see the truth. Now we are both members of the society here and of The Mother Church.
