It is with great thankfulness and deep gratitude for some understanding of God, as taught in Christian Science, that I send this testimony. When Christian Science came to me the doctors had given me three months to live; that was eighteen years ago. The physicians said many organs and surrounding linings were affected with cancer and I could not possibly live over three months. But by studying Christian Science and having six treatments I was healed, although it took almost four years of hard study and application of Christian Science before all fear of the disease left me.

When I was a young girl my family thought I had consumption; then heart trouble started. One brother had cancer and an aunt paralysis—all of which I proceeded to express. Consumption and colds finally disappeared just by studying Mrs. Eddy's works, together with the Bible and the Christian Science periodicals. The heart trouble disappeared soon after taking up Christian Science, and I had forgotten I ever had it until one spring I began having a constant headache. Then I noticed on climbing a stairway that I was almost breathless when I reached the top; but it passed off act once, and I did not think much about it till I went to a store about three blocks away and felt so weak and breathless that I did not know for a while whether or not I would have to call for help; but I finally got home.

Then I began to study and work in Christian Science in earnest; but as I did not get better I called for help from a practitioner. I had three treatments, but seemingly grew weaker. I had no pain, the feeling of weakness came oftener and lasted longer, until I was sure there was some fear or sin in my own consciousness that had to be uncovered and destroyed; so I took "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and read and prayed earnestly for the uncovering of the error; and it did come like a ray of light. I telephoned to the practitioner and told him the trouble I had had years ago with my heart and that the doctor had called it hereditary. I asked for a treatment; and was so rejoiced on finding the trouble was nothing but a false belief, that it disappeared immediately.
