Practitioner Mr. Sun Rong, 30 years old, lived in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province. He had bone cancer but his condition improved after he started practicing Dafa in 1993. On July 20, 1999, Jiang's group started persecuting Dafa. Sun Rong was arrested and held for one month. His father gave the persecutors money and wrote a guarantee statement for his son, so he was released. The authorities constantly harassed him, and his family members forbid him to practice Dafa. Sun Rong's condition worsened. One of his hands became infected, exposing the bone underneath. He passed away in January 2001.
