In October, 1922, I became aware of pain and a peculiar lump in my breast. Unfortunately, I was well versed in medical science; and so it became clear to me that according to materia medica it was an incipient cancer. I was filled with fear and went to a Christian Science practitioner. The practitioner was able to destroy my fear very quickly, although the pain and swelling continually increased. In the course of our conversations I gained courage and confidence again and again.

About the time of the New Year the pain became hardly bearable, and the lump was larger. Again the practitioner helped me patiently and lovingly, and made it clear to me that the more hopeless the material condition seems to be, the more we must rely upon God, divine Mind. Through our talks I gained a clearer and clearer understanding, and the following passage from our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 242), was especially helpful to me: "In patient obedience to a patient God, let us labor to dissolve with the universal solvent of Love the adamant of error,—self-will, self-justification, and self-love,—which wars against spirituality and is the law of sin and death." I now began to struggle against self-love and self-justification, and to express more unselfish love in my daily life. The result was that Love dissolved "the adamant of error." At first the pain ceased, and gradually the growth dissolved, becoming smaller and smaller until it disappeared. Without an operation or material remedies everything has been completely healed. I often have the feeling that I have been born anew. I am filled with profound gratitude, not alone for the healing, but for all that I was privileged to learn during this seemingly difficult time, and which I am now endeavoring to apply daily and hourly.
