The study of Christian Science...

The study of Christian Science has brought to me main blessings, and I wish to share with others my first healing. After surgery and many other forms of medical treatment had failed to help me and the physicians had given me no hope of recovery, I was healed through Science alone of cancer of the stomach and many complications.

My husband asked me to try this religion, which we had heard about from my sister and from his brother; both of them had received healings through its application. I asked my husband to buy me a copy of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and to call a Christian Science practitioner some miles away. In the little town where we lived then, there was neither a practitioner nor a Christian Science church.

The prayerful work which was done for me by the practitioner lessened my fear and that of the family; but because the physical evidence remained, I did not appreciate the good which was being achieved and asked the practitioner to discontinue the treatments. However, I continued to read, study, and ponder the textbook persistently, especially through the sleepless hours of the night.
