Our family has had many instances of protection and healing through complete reliance on God, "who healeth all thy diseases" (Ps. 103:3). These healings include quick and complete restoration through prayer alone in two cases of severe burns; healing of a fractured wrist of one of our children, who was then a kindergartner; and in the diagnosed case of mononucleosis of another daughter away at college. In each situation, healing came through the application of this wonderful Science of Christianity. How grateful I am for the promised Comforter, divine Science, and for the teachings of Christ Jesus on which it is firmly based.

The following healing of a lump in my breast occurred over five years ago. I was completing a year of graduate study at a university, and I was required by the state to have a full medical examination before being granted a teaching credential. During the process of this examination at the university hospital, a lump in one breast caused concern. The examining doctor requested that I see the head physician, who in turn insisted I have an immediate surgical appointment. I told her I was a Christian Scientist, and ended the discussion by saying with conviction, "I've relied all my life on Christian Science for healing, and I'm not going to change now." Before I left she insisted on pressing an appointment slip for surgery in my hand with a telephone number for me to call.

I went home and called, instead, a Christian Science practitioner, who agreed to support me in my stand for Christian Science healing. I had ignored this lump till now as it had not bothered me, even though it had been referred to a year before when I had had a chest X-ray required by the schools. At that time, although I was given the needed clearance, I was also sent a letter advising me to check with a physician.
