Ms. Gan Xiuyun was 71 years old. She was a Falun Dafa practitioner who lived in Fulaerji District, Qiqihar City, Heilongjiang Province. She started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998. She had many diseases before practicing, but all her sicknesses were eliminated after she began the practice. After the year 2000, the local police repeatedly harassed her. Her daughter was also detained. In 2001, her daughter and son-in-law went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. Both were arrested and sentenced to forced labor. This caused Ms. Gan great distress, and from then on she lived in terror and suffered from constant mental anguish. She died on January 27, 2004 after suffering unrelenting pressure and harassment.
