She was arrested and taken to a brainwashing class by the local 610 Office in 2002. During that time her home was ransacked and her family members have been harassed many times since then. Her breast cancer relapsed under long-term persecution, and she died in April 2004.
Mr. Han Gang, 49, lived with his older sister, a Falun Dafa practitioner, because lifelong illness prevented him from living alone. In 1999 he started studying and practicing Falun Dafa with his sister. His physical condition improved dramatically, his cheeks turned pinkish, and many miracles happened to him after practicing Falun Dafa. His older sister was arrested in 2001 by the 610 Office and all of their Falun Dafa books were confiscated. He was left alone, with no environment for cultivation. His old sickness relapsed, and he died suddenly.
Ms. Qian Yulian, 64, was a Falun Dafa practitioner from Qingyuan County, Fushen City, Liaoning Province. She learned Falun Dafa in 1997, and the practice improved both her mind and body.

His employer and local 610 Office withheld his salary, imposed fines on him and illegally sentenced him to prison. The persecutors also withheld his wife's salary and forced her into financial hardship before sending her to a detention center. The persecutors withheld his son's salary and forced him to go through brainwashing sessions three times, and detained the son for two months in Qinhuangdao City First and Second Detention Centers. After detention his son was immediately sentenced to two years of forced labor and detained in the Tangshan Forced Labor Camp.
