Ms. Wu Guoying lived in Apartment 30, Building 23 of Zhaogezhuang, Guye District, Tangshan City, Hebei Province. After she started practicing Falun Gong in 1998, her heart disease, cerebral thrombosis, and diabetes all disappeared. After the persecution of Falun Gong began on July 20, 1999, the local police station and community office personnel often came to harass her. They also confiscated her ID, not allowing her to go out. In addition, they monitored her closely and ransacked her home. As a result, she suffered tremendously. She passed away on November 22, 2003, at the age of 69.
