Ms. Sun Shoufen, 67 years old, lived on Erli Street in Hefei City, Anhui Province. Before she practiced Falun Gong, she suffered from leukemia and diabetes.

She began to practice Falun Gong again and recovered. After experiencing the extraordinary health effects of Falun Gong, she went to Beijing to show the government her medical records. She wanted to tell them the facts about Falun Gong. Instead, she was arrested and illegally detained. After her release, she was continuously harassed and threatened, and her family members were under pressure. As a result of the persecution, her illnesses recurred towards the end of 2003. She died around January 9, 2005.
