A number of years ago I was suffering from a condition that had been diagnosed as rheumatic arthritis. I was twelve years old at the time. After I had undergone two years of intense suffering and had been under constant medical treatment, doctors, including a specialist, informed my parents that ossification of the joints had set in. The doctors stated that nothing known to the medical profession could be done to reverse this process.

Stricken with anxiety and a sense of hopelessness, my mother recalled that two years earlier, soon after I had become bedridden, a dear friend had told her of the healing efficacy of Christian Science. The friend was a student of Science. My mother had thanked this friend for her concern but said that she did not think more could be done for me than was already being done. I was receiving the best medical treatment and the prayers of the minister of the church we then attended.
