Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Yuan Jieling, who is in her 50s, is from Gaozhou City, Guangdong Province. She had many diseases before she started cultivation, but all of her illness disappeared after she started practicing Falun Dafa. In order to validate Falun Dafa, after the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Gong, she went to Beijing twice to appeal, and did exercises in a local park. She was detained twice for fifteen days each time. After the second time she went to Beijing to appeal in 2000, and she was sentenced to seven years in prison by the Gaozhou City Court. She is still detained in the fifth ward of the Guangdong Province Women's Prison.
