Yu Zhanyang - 于占洋
Forty-seven-year-old Mr. Yu Zhanyang lived in Jiaozhuang Village, Qianwang Town, Xianghe County, Langfang City, Hebei Province. In 1998, the Luhe Hospital in Beijing's Tongzhou District diagnosed Mr. Yu with a severe case of lung cancer. The lung cancer could have taken Mr. Yu's life had he not discovered Falun Dafa. By reading Zhuan Falun and doing the exercises, Mr. Yu miraculously recovered. Mr. Yu told many people about the wonders that Dafa had brought to him.
Since the onslaught of the persecution against Falun Dafa in July 1999, the local police frequently harassed Mr. Yu and inflicted much physical and mental distress on him. As a result, Mr. Yu's lung cancer recurred, and took his life on October 10, 1999.
