Christian Science found me working as a medical secretary in the midst of a large medical center. This was a time of deep trouble in my life following surgery for what was diagnosed as a malignancy. The doctors had advised me of my status and had kindly pointed out I had a very uncertain future and there would probably be a recurrence within a prescribed time. I was placed under therapy treatment and admonished not to do certain things which could affect my condition. I returned to my job and tried to put the whole matter behind me, but it possessed my thinking, and I was unable to find peace anywhere.

The textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, sent by an old friend, arrived in the mail at this time. In a despondent state of mind and with a head full of medical dictation, I began to read this wonderful book. The line in the Preface of Science and Health (p. vii), "The wakeful shepherd beholds the first faint morning beams, ere cometh the full radiance of a risen day," illumined my thought, and I read on eagerly.
