Mr. Zhou Qichang, 73, was a staff member of the Wuchuan Mercury Mine in Guizhou Province. He lived in his daughter's home. At one time he was diagnosed with throat cancer, bronchitis, and other ailments. After practicing Dafa, he fully recovered from these diseases. Additionally, the sarcoma that was on his instep for several decades disappeared without a trace. His bald head even grew hair again. In July 1999, Mr. Zhou, his wife, daughter, son-in-law, and grandson went to the provincial government to appeal on behalf of Falun Gong and were arrested. After he returned home, the leaders in his daughter's company and the public security bureau visited them frequently to threaten, intimidate, and monitor them. This precipitated an attack of cerebral thrombosis. He left the world on December 19, 2000.
