Ms. Li Baozhen was a 49-year-old practitioner from Xiaohu Village, Sanhe City, Hebei Province, who started to practice Falun Gong in 1997. Before she practiced Falun Gong, she had many diseases and she felt very weak and irritable at all times. As soon are she started practicing Falun Dafa, her illnesses went away and she felt light and full of energy, even while working. After July 20 1999, the deputy Party secretary of the village, Zhang Xihua, (who has since died)) went to her home to harass her. Mr. Li was very timid and it was very hard on her to suffer such continual harassment. After a long period of this mental pressure, her ill-health returned and she died on November 9, 2002.
