1. Ms. Liu Cuiying was a sixty year-old Falun Dafa disciple from Pingdingshan City, Henan Province. She started practicing Falun Dafa in 1996. After July 20, 1999, she traveled to Beijing City four times to appeal and to clarify the truth. She was arrested four times by the police from the Weidong District Department in Pingdingshan City, Henan Province. Liu Cuiying had a healthy body, but during the last illegal detention, she was tortured to the point of paralysis in her hands and legs and became bedridden. She passed away on September 29, 2005.
2. Mr. Wang Shihuai was a sixty-three year-old Dafa disciple from Pingdingshan City, Henan Province. Before he started Falun Dafa cultivation practice, he suffered from cirrhosis of the liver. He became healthy after he started practicing Falun Dafa. After July 20, 1999, he was constantly harassed and threatened by the police. During one forced brainwashing session, his past symptoms relapsed and his health rapidly deteriorated. During the lunar calendar Chinese New Year in 2005 (February 9), his family members sent him to the hospital. He passed away on the evening of February 27, 2005.
3. Mr. Wang Ruixiang was a sixty-three year-old retired teacher from Laixi City Polytechnic School in Shandong Province. He suffered from numerous diseases before practicing Falun Gong cultivation. After he started the practice of Falun Gong, major changes occurred. He was able to carry out all kinds of labor, light or heavy. After the persecution of Falun Dafa started, he was "illegally arrested" and detained for twenty-eight days by policemen when he went to Beijing to validate Dafa in the summer of 2000. After he was released, he returned to work, but eleven-months of his salary (close to 20,000 yuan) was taken away. He was again arrested and taken from his home by the police in 2001. First he was detained in the Laixi City Police Station. Later he was transferred and persecuted for 43 days in the brainwashing class in Qingdao City, Shandong Province. After Mr. Wang Ruixiang was persecuted in the brainwashing class, his body was very weak. The 610 Office police also frequently went to his home and workplace to harass and monitor him. Under the combined psychological and spiritual persecution, he passed away on October 15, 2005.
4. Mr. Cheng Wenbao was a sixty-five year-old man from Xinfa Village, Pingyang Town, Jidong County in Heilongjiang Province. Prior to his practicing Falun Gong, he suffered from liver cancer. He was informed by the General Hospital of the Mining Department of Jixi City (in Heilongjiang Province) at the beginning of 1998 that he would only live for three more months. It was then that he started to practice Falun Dafa. In less than six months he was fully recovered from cancer. After the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s persecution of Falun Gong started on July 20, 1999, the police searched his home many times, and harassed and threatened him to prevent him from practicing Falun Gong. Cheng Wenbao endured great psychological pressure. He passed away on lunar calendar February 22, 2000.
5. Mr. Yu Rufu was around sixty years old and lived in Xinfa Village, Pingyang Town, Jidong County in Heilongjiang Province. He started practicing Falun Dafa in the spring of 1998. He set up a practice site in his own home, with more than forty villagers coming to practice. After the persecution of Falun Gong began, the police searched his home many times to harass and disperse the practice site. He was heavily monitored and not allowed to do the practice, which lead to the relapse of his illness. He passed away on March 27, 2000.
6. Ms. Ren Dianfeng was a fifty-two year-old Dafa practitioner from Xuanhua District, Zhangjiakou City in Hebei Province. She was physically weak before cultivating Falun Dafa. She became a different person after she started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997, becoming healthy in both mind and body. On the night of November 1, 2002, more than ten people from the District Police Station jumped off from the rooftop, broke into her home, and forcibly took her to the detention center. After illegally detaining her for a month, they extorted over 6000 yuan from her family, and also pressured her children to watch her. Ren Dianfeng was under an extended period of psychological pressure. As a consequence, she passed away on September 12, 2005.
7. Ms. Wang Xiuying was a sixty-four year-old lady from Chicheng County, Zhangjiakou City in Hebei Province. She suffered from diabetes, hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, and other multiple illnesses. She had a weak physical body and experienced unbearable pain. After cultivating Falun Dafa, many illnesses were eliminated. After the persecution started, the cultivation environment was disrupted. As a consequence, she no longer could practice as usual. Her physical body showed disease symptoms. In 2000, because her son was clarifying truth and therefore arrested and persecuted, she was terribly shocked, and it lead to the worsening of her disease symptoms. She passed away on February 2, 2001.
8. Ms. Tan Dongying started practicing Falun Dafa cultivation in 1997 when she was suffering from breast cancer and the medication and injections were no longer effective. Two months later, she was recovered from the cancer. Since then, she was always persistent in her practice. After July 20, 1999, she was illegally detained and fined, with numerous aspects of threats and persecution. Under the evil persecution, she no longer could continue to practice and study Fa. As a consequence, starting in August 2005, illness symptoms from before she started to practice relapsed, and she passed away.
