(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Qi Xufang, 61, was a physician at the Weihai City Health and Epidemic Prevention Station in Shandong Province. She retired in 2000, and lived in Xinghua Village, Huancui District, Weihai City, Shandong Province. She benefited immensely after she began practicing Falun Dafa in 1997. Her work unit pressured her to quit the practice many times after the persecution began on July 20, 1999. She was reported to the local authorities when she was clarifying the truth to people at an early-morning farm market in November 2002. The police from Huancui District Police Station illegally arrested her and detained her in the Weihai City Detention Center for over twenty days. Later they sent her to the Wangcun Brainwashing Center in Zibo City, Shandong Province, and detained her there for over one month. She was severely persecuted and forced to give up practicing Falun Gong. She suffered both physically and mentally.

Ms. Qi Xufang resumed her practice and study of Falun Dafa after she was released. Police officers Liu Jie and Liu Jinhu from the 610 Office of Huancui District Police Department often came to harass her in various ways. A plainclothes police officer reported her when she was clarifying the truth to people on May 23, 2004. Liu Jie led a few policemen to illegally ransack her home the following day. Facing huge pressure, her family members did not allow her to go out or contact any Falun Dafa practitioners. She suffered severely both mentally and in her daily life. She developed stomach cancer and died on August 23, 2005.
