Mr. Zhu Xianshu, a retired official from the Central Area Chuan Paper Mill, Leshan City, Sichuan province, regained his health after practicing Falun Gong. After July 20, 1999, the authorities repeatedly harassed and threatened him. In September 2002, at the age of seventy-two, Mr. Zhu passed away as he could no longer bear the relentless persecution from the authorities.

Prior to practicing Falun Gong, Zhu had many diseases. He started practicing 1996. When he initially came to the exercise site, others had to help him walk because he was unsteady on his feet, and he showed the beginning symptoms of senile dementia. After studying Falun Gong and practicing the five exercises, his illnesses completely disappeared. During a discussion at the exercise site, he said that he no longer had any symptoms of illness.

After July 20, 1999, Jiang Zemin's regime persecuted Zhu mercilessly. Members of the Shawan police station, the paper mill security department, local political offices, the local Party branch and others frequently subjected him to brainwashing, threatened to harm him further if he did not give up the exercises and confiscated all of his Falun Gong books. After that, he did not dare to do the exercises, and he had a heavy burden on his mind. He passed away in September 2002.
