Patient with Late-Stage Stomach Cancer Recovers after Practicing Falun Dafa

January 31, 2004 |   By A Practitioner From Tangshang City

(Clearwisdom.net) I am 36 years old. I was diagnosed with late stage stomach cancer in July 2003. My entire family was in deep grief when they heard the news. I had to stay in the hospital and have surgery to remove the cancer. The high costs of the surgery and medical treatments caused conflicts between my side and my husband's side of the family. My husband's family thought that since I was dying from cancer, it was better to leave the money for my husband and the children than spend all of it on an untreatable disease. My own family would spend every penny and sell the house just to let me live a few more days. The two families started arguing endlessly. A friend of mine told me Falun Dafa was good and gave me the book Zhuan Falun. She took me to a Dafa practitioner's home in Xinqu and I read Zhuan Falun every day.

Ever since the day I obtained the Fa, I arranged my daily schedule so that I could finish at least two chapters of Zhuan Falun, study Essentials for Further Advancement and Teacher's articles, and do the exercises in the morning and evening each day. I kept very busy, my life was very fruitful, and I was always in a very good mood. I only had one-fifth of my stomach left after the surgery; it was like a fine tube that could not hold any amount of food. The first lunch I had after I obtained Fa, instead of four small dumplings, I broke the record and had a bowl of rice. The next time I ate lunch, I had a bowl of dumplings. I gradually increased the amount of fruit I ate, from one slice a day to the whole fruit.

The fourth day, I wanted to go out on the street, but I was worried about my lower back. I could not even lie down and get up easily; how was I supposed to walk? I wanted to call for a ride like I usually did. My friend said, "You should be able to walk. You are a practitioner now and should not have any illnesses." I could not believe that I really walked. I felt energetic, like I was another person. My husband saw this change and said happily, "It is Teacher who saved you. Falun Dafa saved you and our entire family." Family and friends saw that I was getting healthier every day, and they all said, "It is Falun Dafa that saved you. We want to learn Dafa as well."
