With deep gratitude for my upbringing in Christian Science, I relate a healing that I feel has solidified forever my faith in the Christ, Truth. The summer prior to my junior year in high school was for me a great learning time. I had finished my sophomore year with a fourth place in the state tennis tournament. And to my joy I had been asked to work with my high-school coach, giving summer tennis lessons. I seized the opportunity, knowing that there would be many free hours during the day to spend improving my own playing abilities. My goal for the following year was to be a state tennis champion.

Toward the end of June, however, I began to lose all feeling in my feet. Instead of refuting this lie with the truths of perfect spiritual being, I simply brushed it aside, attributing it to long hours of strenuous activity. After a time, however, my condition became much more serious. It appeared I was becoming completely helpless. One day I happened to read a magazine article describing multiple sclerosis. I realized that I was manifesting four or five of the given symptoms.
