Ms. Dong Xiuzhen, sixty-four years old, was a resident of Anliu City, Hubei Province. She recovered from a back injury of thirty years, leg problems, a long history of high blood pressure and heart problems after she started to practice Falun Dafa. After July 20, 1999, the police and government cadres frequently harassed and threatened her, simply for the fact that she continued to practice Falun Gong. After the police had come to threaten and ransack her house in October of 2002, her old illnesses relapsed and she died on December 10, 2004.
