Mr. Xing Shuyuan was from Zhengjiu Village, Dancheng Town, Shuangcheng City, Heilongjiang Province. He had many kinds of diseases including rheumatism, arthritis, pain in the legs and waist. He could not walk steadily and had to wear cotton-padded shoes to keep his feet warm even on hot summer days. After he practiced Falun Gong, all the diseases disappeared and he became very healthy. After the persecution started in 1999, he encountered enormous pressure and passed away in December 2004.
