Ms. Zhang Yanxin, 24 years old, was from Dengta City, Liaoning Province. Before she practiced Falun Gong, she was in the late stage of breast cancer and had undergone two massive surgeries. The doctor told her that she would only have three more months to live. After she practiced Falun Gong, however, her illness totally disappeared and she became healthy. After Falun Gong was persecuted, she went to Beijing to peacefully appeal on July 22, 1999. She was illegally detained and then sent back. The police went to her home many times to harass her, and as a result, her illness recurred. She died on February 7, 2001.
