Ms. Ma Shiying, 66, was a resident in Weiguang Road, Changchun City, Jilin Province. She suffered from many illnesses, such as heart disease, fatty liver, and hypertension. All of her illnesses disappeared after she practiced Falun Gong. On November 24, 2000, she went to Beijing to validate Dafa and was detained. The authorities also ransacked her home and extorted money from her. After she was released, she once contacted her fellow practitioners over the phone. The police had tapped her phone, and, to escape the persecution, she became homeless and had to wander from place to place. Unable to live a normal life, Ms. Ma's health deteriorated, and she died on March 21, 2004.
