Ms. Jiang Xiuting was from Wu Village, Hezhai Town, Guangtao County, Handan area of Hebei Province. She used to suffer from various ailments, including gastroptosis. Her stomach sagged as many as ten centimeters, causing her to stoop. After she started practicing Falun Gong in 1998, all of her ailments were cured. After 1999, when Jiang's regime started persecuting Falun Gong, her whole family was affected. Her son was sentenced to one year in the Handan Labor Camp and her daughter was detained for half a month for appealing to the government in Beijing. During that period, her daughter-in-law refused to care for her. She even abused her and asked her to leave home. Ms. Jiang Xiuting was treated as if she were a beggar. Her son was once again arrested on May 18, 2002 after being released from the labor camp, and was illegally sentenced to jail. Affected by that loss and the continued harassment, she passed away on July 18, 2001.
