Ms. Miao Chuanyuan, 78, was a resident of Zhonghe Town, Yuechi County, Sichuan Province. Before she obtained the Fa in 1996, Ms. Miao was half paralyzed and even had difficulty walking, so she had to use a crutch. After starting cultivation, she was restored to health. After the persecution started on July 20th, 1999, police often came to harass her family and interrogate her on the source of Dafa material. On March 16, 2004, county 610 Office agents ransacked her home and arrested her son. Some policemen threw her son into the vehicle, and Ms. Miao collapsed from anxiety. She became ill after that. Her son was sentenced to one year in prison, and Ms. Miao died as a result of both mental and physical persecution on July 16, 2005.
