Words fail to express my gratitude for all that Christian Science...

Words fail to express my gratitude for all that Christian Science has done for me. From early childhood I had been very delicate, and had been constantly under the care of doctors. I left two hospitals as incurable, suffering from a diseased organ, bladder trouble, St. Vitus's dance, and chronic neurasthenia. In the spring of 1922 I became a chronic invalid, after many specialists had been consulted. Three years later I became unconscious. I lay in this condition a year and eight months with no possible chance of recovery. The trouble was diagnosed as tumor on the brain, which caused me to be blind, deaf, and dumb. In this condition, materia medica could do nothing for me.

My mother was advised to put me into an asylum, but this she was unwilling to do. She promised the doctors that she would never leave me, and for five years she faithfully nursed me. During the whole of this time I was attended by doctors, who administered increasing doses of morphia daily for two years. It was then that a Christian Scientist called at our home and asked my mother to try Christian Science, as she was sure it could heal me. My mother refused, saying that everything possible had been tried.
