(Clearwisdom.net. January 12, 2001) I am a female retiree residing in China. During the Cultural Revolution thirty years ago, my family was persecuted, and I was detained in a damp underground air-raid shelter, where I developed a serious case of arthritis. Afterwards, I relied on pain-killers to lead a normal life. On top of that, I later contracted hepatitis as a result of the intensity of the labor with which I was engaged. After I married, I had a mentally disabled and frail son, and my husband has always been in poor health as well. While toiling with all my might to ensure the welfare of my son and my family, the condition of my hepatitis continuously deteriorated, causing my liver to grow extremely painful. Furthermore, nerve fibroma appeared all over my body, and everyone became frightened by my appearance. Many doctors informed me, "Your diseases cannot be cured with modern medicine, but do not be discouraged. Someday, new drugs capable of curing your ailments may be discovered." I knew I was just waiting for death. I contemplated suicide as an end to my many years of torment, but I could not bear to leave my son alone and let him suffer in this world. Thus, I also considered dying together with my son and ending all of our misfortunes.

Two years ago, hope reappeared in my life when my sister, who practices Falun Gong in the USA, introduced me to the practice. I began practicing myself and reading Zhuan Falun, and I also started conducting myself according to the principles of "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance." Three months later, my arthritis was cured, the pain in my liver and gall bladder was greatly reduced and the fibroma improved as well. In the following two years, without taking any medicine, I became much healthier, and I am no longer tormented by illness.

My miraculous transformation proves that Falun Dafa is wonderful. Teacher Li Hongzhi has given me a second life, and I wish to remind all those followers of Jiang Zemin who have defamed or are still slandering Falun Gong, "Stop your wrongdoings immediately; stop the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners!"
