(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Zhao Xiuli was an assistant at a Falun Gong practice site in the Fulaerji District of Qiqihaer City before the persecution of Falun Gong began in China. In July 20, 1999, Jiang Zemin's regime started its persecution of Falun Gong, so Ms. Zhao and ten other local practitioners went to Beijing's Tiananmen Square to appeal for Falun Dafa. She was arrested and unlawfully sentenced to forced labor at Qiqihaer City's Shuanghe Labor Camp. There, Ms. Zhao was forcibly brainwashed, and she abandoned Falun Gong cultivation practice.

Gradually, her previous heart illness recurred and bothered her continually. At that time, her former fellow practitioners found her and tried to persuade her to return to practicing Falun Gong. They told her that only our merciful Teacher could save her. But somehow, Ms. Zhao could not understand and would not heed their advice. In early 2003, she could not move her upper body freely. She went to the hospital, had some tests done and was diagnosed with breast cancer. Ms. Zhao then spent a few months at the hospital and had several treatments. Although she spent a lot of money on medical care, her illness worsened to the point where she could not get out of bed. The hospital's diagnosis was end-stage cancer. Because treatment could no longer help, the hospital stopped giving her any medical services. At that moment, Ms. Zhao remembered the advice from her former fellow practitioners with regret; she believed it might be too late for her to start practicing again.

In fact, the fellow practitioners had never stopped caring about her. When they found out about her latest situation, they rushed to the hospital. Four practitioners asked her to cooperate and send forth righteous thoughts with them. Afterwards, her illness was miraculously greatly reduced. Ms. Zhao realized that only Falun Dafa could save her. Since then, Ms. Zhao has continued to study the teachings of Falun Dafa and has kept sending forth righteous thoughts with her fellow practitioners. After a few days, her breast festered and discharged a great deal of dark blood. The cancer symptoms disappeared, and she could get out of bed and move around. Several days later, Ms. Zhao fully recovered and she was released from the hospital. Her husband originally did not believe in Falun Dafa, but after witnessing his wife being pronounced as hopeless by the hospital staff and then fully recovering, he changed his mind. Dafa saved her life, and he now completely believes in the wonder of Falun Dafa.
