Our youngest son was born with a condition...

Our youngest son was born with a condition diagnosed by a prominent pediatrician as hypo-gammaglobulinemia, a very serious blood condition. From the time he was born we were just barely able to keep him alive through medical treatment. Finally, when the boy was five, doctors advised us to move from our home in Maine to Arizona where the dry weather, it was hoped, would help lessen this child's constant sicknesses. However, the move did not bring improvement. In fact, the treatment our son received weekly from a physician produced adverse mental effects.

Thoroughly disillusioned, my husband and I finally decided to completely stop the program that the doctors had instituted for our child. This was about the time that I earnestly started to study and apply the teachings of Christian Science in my daily life.
