I was raised in Christian Science, and I have relied on God for healing throughout my life. I attended a Christian Science Sunday School until I was twenty.

When I was five years old I became very ill and couldn't get out of bed. A doctor was called to the house because my mother believed the condition might be considered contagious. After I was examined, the doctor told my parents that I had polio, and that there was nothing he could do for me. He also told my parents that if I ever did get well, I would never walk without metal supports on my legs and that one leg would be smaller than the other. When the doctor had left, my mother called a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me.
