Mr. Tang Chaofu was in his 40s. He worked as the director of the Chenxi County Food Office. He used to suffer from nasal sinus cancer and was given several months to live, but his illness went away after he started practicing Dafa in 1996. After July 20, 1999, the officials at his work unit pressured and harassed Tang Chaofu at his home many times, which prevented him from studying the Fa and doing the exercises. This triggered a relapse of his old illness. He passed away in October 2002.
