Mr. Zhang Wenge, born in Xinbin County, Fushun City, Liaoning Province, once suffered from numerous illnesses including diabetes. After learning Falun Dafa, he became healthy. When the persecution started in 1999, Mr. Zhang went to Beijing to validate Falun Dafa and was twice put into a detention center. The persecution he suffered while in detention took a heavy toll on his mind and body, and eventually all of his old illnesses returned. On March 18, 2005, he passed away, only 56 years old.
