This testimony is written with heartfelt gratitude to God for Christian Science.
Several years ago I began to be troubled with pain. I paid little attention to it, thinking it was due to tiredness caused by working in very cramped and uncomfortable quarters with insufficient working space. But the trouble worsened, and it became evident that abnormal growths were present. I greatly feared malignancy. A friend of mine and a close relative who had lived in my home had both passed on with this condition. Daily hospital visits to them had left many unhappy memories.
I had been reared in Christian Science and loved it, but confronted with this problem I felt that my understanding was too little to bring healing. The worst enemy was fear. At first I was too afraid to ask a Christian Science practitioner for help, for I couldn't bring myself to say what I thought the trouble was. At last I realized I had to obey this instruction in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 420): "If students do not readily heal themselves, they should early call an experienced Christian Scientist to aid them." I asked a practitioner to pray for me.
