When I was a junior in high school, a condition formed on my foot that made walking very difficult. I limped around using just the toes of my foot because I couldn't step down completely. At that time, my sister (with whom I lived) and I did a great deal of prayerful work in Christian Science, and as a result I was able to finish my year at school.

In the early summer I attended a large picnic with friends of my sister and her husband. By this time we thought it wise to bandage the heel of my foot. While I was sitting on the sidelines watching everyone swimming in the pool, one of the men in our group came over and sat beside me. He wondered why I was not swimming, so I told him that I had a sore heel. He asked if he could see the foot, and I let him. (I did not find out until later that he was one of the city's leading physicians.) After examining my foot, he pronounced the condition a tumor and said it had spread up the leg and possibly throughout my body. He urged me to come to his office the next morning.
