In 1933, when I was very ill, a friend presented Christian Science to me, but my family was strongly opposed to this method of healing and insisted that I have a doctor. However, I continued my studs of this religion. My condition became steadily worse until, finally, the doctor warned my family that I could not be expected to survive. One night they awaited the end. In spite of my extreme weakness, I was certain that I would be healed, knowing that God's perfect child could not die.

In the morning my mother said aloud to the others, "This is the end." I heard her, and, gathering together all my strength, I let them know that I was alive and that I would continue to live. When the doctor came, accompanied by a colleague, they were surprised and decided to have me taken immediately to the nearest hospital. They tried to help me for about forty days, but without success. A blood clot had unexpectedly manifested itself on my right side.

One day a friend who was studying medicine came to see me and assured me that even though the physician could do nothing more for me, God would not forsake me.
