Ms. Liu Aimin and Ms. Zhang Jianqing from Xianzhu City, Hubei Province Suffered Persecution Prior to Their Deaths
Fifty-year-old Ms. Liu Aimin was a staff member of the Wenquan Construction Company in Xianzhu City, Hubei Province. She learned about Falun Dafa in 1993 and subsequently attended many of Teacher's classes in person. After practicing Falun Dafa, she recovered from the tuberculosis that had been bothering her for years. She persisted in practicing with undeterred faith and enjoyed good health and happiness. After the persecution began on July 20, 1999, she gave numerous personal testimonies to support Falun Dafa and was arrested, detained, and fined many times. She was sent to forced labor camp twice, brutally beaten up seven times, and suffered tremendous physical and spiritual torture. Her work unit turned against her, and her husband divorced her after she was released from the labor camp. In 2003, she was forced to become homeless to avoid persecution. She lived on a minimum of food and in barely adequate shelter. Enduring great physical and mental pressure, she was diagnosed with leukemia and died on June 3, 2005.
Ms. Zhang Jianqing, 60, was a doctor from the Qenquan People's Hospital in Zianahu City, Hubei Province. She experienced a marvelous physical transformation after she started practicing Falun Dafa. When the persecution began on July 20, 1999, her employer and family urged her to give up her practice and belief. During that time, she suffered nonstop harassment from the police and was devastated physically and emotionally. She was diagnosed with cervical cancer and died in June 2004.
