For a number of years, I was subject to tumorous growths in the abdomen. Surgery had been performed for their removal, but they continued to reappear. While a student at college, I desired to take up swimming. A medical examination was required by the college before I could qualify.

By this time I was interested in Christian Science, and I decided that I would yield to the medical examination only in order to meet the requirements of the swimming course. During the examination the doctor stated that I had better give up the idea of having swimming instruction. He said that I should enter a hospital, because a large and serious growth in the abdomen was evident.

Thereupon I resolved that I would take care of the condition through Christian Science. I then called on a practitioner and informed him of the doctor's verdict. The practitioner most emphatically stated that the entire experience was a false belief which has no place in the allness of Truth, God. He also stated that no abnormal growth can form, develop, secrete, accumulate, attach itself to, or prey on man, the spiritual idea, the reflection of God, divine Spirit. He made it clear to me that the direct opposite of material growth is spiritual growth, spiritual progress, spiritual unfoldment, which is constantly taking place in man.
