My family was introduced to Christian Science through a healing

My family was introduced to Christian Science through a healing. My father had been suffering from a form of arthritis and was finding it increasingly difficult to walk or even stand. At the time, he was a navigator in the Air Force, so he went to an Air Force doctor who ran extensive tests. This doctor then informed my father that the disease was developing rapidly and that he would be an invalid within a few months. A second doctor was consulted; and after another series of tests, this doctor gave my father the same unhappy prognosis.

At this point my mother suggested we investigate Christian Science. Her own father had been a physician, and she had grown up in a very medically oriented family. She remembered a family in her youth, however, who had been Christian Scientists. She had been impressed by their happiness and general good health. I remember her saying that we had nothing to lose by investigating Christian Science.
