Practitioner Ms. Liu Santuan, from Luoyang City, Henan Province, was in her 60s. After she started to practice Falun Gong in 1997, all her old illnesses, including diabetes, were gone. Since the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners began on July 20, 1999, she was constantly harassed and threatened by the local police and members of her work unit. She suffered a relapse of her illnesses and passed away in 2004.
