13. Terminally Ill Woman Recovers From Cancer And Other Serious Diseases

  My family name is Wang. I live on Qianjin Street in Ningjiang District, Jilin Province. I have been practicing Falun Gong for seven years and feel that it saved my life. Before I practiced Falun Gong, I suffered from several severe diseases such as liver ailments, gallstones, rheumatoid arthritis, insomnia, and more. Even something as quiet as a clock ticking would cause me to not be able to fall asleep. When my hemorrhoids flared up, I would start hemorrhaging. Every summer, it felt like I was being pricked by countless needles. It was so bad that I could not sit or lie down easily. I dreaded the summer. Every spring and fall, my chest would burn, and it felt like thousands of needles were scratching up and down my back. The pain was so severe that I was almost paralyzed. I was barely able to cook or do anything around the house. I had been taking all kinds of medications for a long time, and a side effect of this was that my teeth became loose. I was suffering so much from pain and illness that I had a very bad temper. Then at the end of 1987, when my child was only three years old, I was diagnosed to have a malignant breast tumor and I had a mastectomy. After the surgery, I could barely lift my arms up high enough to reach my mouth to feed myself. During those years, I spent most of my time and savings trying to treat my illnesses. I practiced many different types of qigong, hoping one would cure me, but all of my efforts were in vain.

  In 1996, I was diagnosed with a thyroid as big as an egg yolk, and my hyperthyroidism had recurred. I needed more surgery and more chemotherapy. At the same time, my husband began having an affair with another woman and then divorced me. I was dying, and my two children were left alone with me; we struggled very hard to survive. My health was spiraling downward dramatically. It was then, in 1997, when I was on the verge of total collapse, that I started to practice Falun Gong. Ever since I started, many amazing things have happened to me. My health improved day by day. Many of my diseases disappeared, as did my tumors. I deeply sensed the joy of finally living without illness. I became very energetic; now I can walk long distances without feeling any fatigue at all. I can easily lift both arms, even the one on the side of my mastectomy. I can perform all kinds of manual labor. When it is time to change the gas cylinder in my kitchen, I can easily carry the heavy tank up the stairs. Everyone around me can see that I am a totally changed person.

  After learning the practice of Falun Gong, I not only was cured of all my illnesses, I also began to understand the true meaning of life. My way of thinking improved, and I learned to be a better person. I keep the concept of being considerate and benevolent towards other people in the front of my mind at all times, and conduct myself according to the principles Teacher has taught us: Zhen, Shan, Ren (Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance). The anger I held in my heart towards my ex-husband is gone, and now I take care of his ninety-year-old father without complaint.

  I am healthy and energetic now. I thank Teacher and Falun Dafa from the bottom of my heart for saving my life. I am also thankful for Teacher's mercy, for giving me the blessing to practice Falun Dafa and showing me the way of returning to my original, true self.
