(Clearwisdom.net) The following is a true story. From this story you can imagine how many innocent people have lost their chances because of the slander and persecution of Falun Gong proliferated by the Jiang regime.

In February 2003, I was a 13-year-old in the 6th grade. I felt very tired and it was very hard to breath after walking only a short distance, and my complexion was turning yellow. This had never happened to me before. The doctor diagnosed my illness as regeneration barrier anemia. My parents couldn't believe this and took me to several different hospitals. All the experts who examined me gave the same diagnosis. My family was very worried when I was hospitalized. My life depended on transfusions twice a month. My condition did not get better, and my hemoglobin level dropped from 4 grams (0.141 oz.) to 3 grams (0.106 oz.).

After two months in the hospital my family had spent all their money. They borrowed over 10,000 Yuan* from relatives and friends. Nothing changed, and the doctor said the condition is not easy to cure even if we spent 300,000 Yuan. My parents cried every day. They had no idea what to do next. Then my cousin came to visit me. She told me that she used to have all kind of diseases, and they all disappeared after she practiced Falun Gong. She suggested that I practice Falun Gong too.

I had been deceived by the propaganda on state-run television. So when this cousin told me her story, I covered my ears and pretended not to hear. Then I read some experience-sharing articles by other Falun Gong practitioners and half-believed. I thought, "Is this real?" My cousin brought me the book Zhuan Falun. After I read the whole book, my cousin started teaching me the exercises. From that time on, I read the book during the day and did the exercises at night. I even forgot I was a patient. After a few days, I felt stronger and was not so easily tired any more. After a few more days my skin became very yellow again. The examination showed my hemoglobin level dropped again. At that moment my father was crouched in the hallway and could not raise his head. But I was not frightened at all.

Once I was back at home, I concentrated on studying Zhuan Falun, doing the exercises, and listening to the audiotapes of Teacher's lectures. My parents still felt uncomfortable. They found and prepared all sort of folk medications for me, but I just put all my heart in Fa study and practice.

Not long after I started Falun Gong practice, a miracle happened to me. My normal rosy complexion returned. My thighs, that used to be so swollen, were back to normal. My appetite returned, and I got my strength back. My next exam at the hospital showed my hemoglobin level was back to normal. My parents, relatives, and friends were so happy. My neighbors all said, "Qiang, you are so lucky. You got your life back from the doorstep of death."

Yes, Teacher saved my life. My mom told me with her face full of tears, "My child, you should practice Falun Gong well. If it weren't for Master, who saved your life, I cannot imagine what our family would look like now."

It was Falun Gong that saved my life, but why does Jiang Zemin, Luo Gan, and the "610 Office"** continue to persecute such a good cultivation practice? I hope someday that I can do the practice freely and openly.

* Yuan is the Chinese currency. The average worker in China earns about 500 yuan per month.

** "610 Office" is an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems.
