Many years ago, after my older brother had passed on with what the doctors pronounced to be tuberculosis, I began to cough and lose weight rapidly. It was requested of all family members that we have chest X-rays because the disease seemed to be hereditary. The doctor who was head of the tuberculosis sanitarium was a close friend of the family.

At that point I had been studying Christian Science for three or four years. I asked for prayerful help from a Christian Science practitioner. Much persistent prayer was needed as the healing did not come quickly. For six months I slept every night sitting up in a chair, for I could breathe more easily that way.
