(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Ji Yonglan was a 69-year old woman from Jianli Village, Shifo Town, Dashiqiao City, Liaoning Province. She started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, and as a result she was cured of the diabetes that had haunted her for many years. After she began practicing, she was like a different person and went from someone who was illiterate to being able to read the book Zhuan Falun. Since the persecution began, the local police have continuously harassed her. They came knocking on her door during the middle of the night, or they would stay in her house and not leave. They even monitored the friends and relatives who went to visit her and her husband. The police illegally arrested her daughter, held her for half a month, and extorted 1500 yuan out of her. All these circumstances created a lot of prolonged mental burdens for her.

Ji Yonglan's husband also started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997. Later under all kinds of pressure from the local police, he gave up the practice. Unfortunately, he was later diagnosed with dementia, causing him to slowly lose himself. He lost control over his bowels and could no longer take care of himself. He has to be fed and have others take care of him. Due to the persecution he endured, Ji Yonglan suffered mentally and physically. In December of 2004 she showed symptoms of lung cancer and passed away in January of 2005.
