Ms. Yao Yumei was a 73-year-old retired worker of Hengshui City Shoe Factory in Hebei Province. Ms. Yao started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997 and studied the Fa diligently. All of her illnesses were cured without seeking medical treatment. After July 20, 1999, Ms. Yao was very active in clarifying the truth about Falun Dafa. Because of the Jiang regime's state sponsored terrorism and persecution of Falun Dafa, Ms. Yao's children were afraid of being implicated, so they did everything in their power to stop her from practicing. Ms. Yao's body and mind were severely harmed. She left the world in mid-December of 2004.
