Not long after the birth of our first child, I became aware of a growth in my neck. At first I paid little attention to it. But eventually it grew larger and caused pressure, making me feel lightheaded at times. At that point I became very frightened. Realizing that I could no longer ignore the situation, I turned in earnest to Christian Science and enlisted a Christian Science practitioner to support my prayer.

It was clear that the paramount necessity in this case was to overcome fear. In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy we read (p. 493): "Disease is an experience of so-called mortal mind. It is fear made manifest on the body." And page 368 states: "When fear disappears, the foundation of disease is gone." I felt that if I could conquer my fear of the situation, its pretense to reality would be stripped away and I would be healed.
