RADIO PROGRAM No. 130 - How Spiritual Awakening Healed Cancer

On this program J. Henry Ball of Los Angeles, California, told of his own experience. The program was as follows:

Speaker: Have you ever noticed we're sometimes inclined to resist or even push away the very thing we need most? After our guest put aside his reluctance to welcome the availability of God's healing power, he was restored to health when his condition seemed beyond hope. But here is J. Henry Ball of Los Angeles, California, to tell you about it himself.

Mr. Ball: Late in 1929 my family physician rushed me to the hospital. After a thorough examination by six or seven specialists, the doctors declared that I had a quick-growing cancer, and that my time was short. I was told that I was too far gone for treatment. Since no more could be done for me, I was taken home. At this point I called a very close friend and asked him if he would take care of my family—my wife and two young sons. Although he was not a Christian Scientist, he knew friends who had been healed and urged me to try it. But I had lost interest in religion; so I didn't pay much attention to what he said. However, he was persistent.
