In 1944, I was in Florida working for an airline and living with two other girls. One of these girls was a Christian Scientist. One day she developed a cold and had a painful earache. She had a sister-in-law who was a practitioner in Arizona, and she wanted me to call her brother there so that he would relate her condition to his wife.

I could not understand how in the world someone so many miles away could benefit her. However, I notified her brother by telegram. The next day my roommate was on her way to work with no trace of the difficulty that had bothered her.

For seven years I had consulted doctors regarding a rare blood condition from which I was suffering. After annually rushing me to the hospitals for transfusions and occasional surgery, they said it was a wonder I was alive. When, in addition to this trouble, I began to suffer from jaundice, the physician said there was no hope in the medical field for me. Recalling the healing of my friend, I decided to try Christian Science.
