Alive and Well Ten Years After Being Diagnosed with Late-stage Stomach Cancer

Today I met a middle-aged woman named Ms. Hu, who was selling preserved eggs. She told me her husband's story. Her husband was diagnosed with late stage stomach cancer. But through practicing Falun Gong, he has recovered and it has been ten years since his diagnosis.

The couple lived in the countryside. At the beginning of 1998, her husband, Mr. Liu, started to rapidly lose weight. On April 30, 1998, he went to a hospital and was diagnosed with late stage stomach cancer. He was told that the cancer had spread throughout his body. The doctor told him he might live for three to six months if he had surgery. Without any treatment, he would not survive for even three months.

The whole family was in shock and pain. The surgery was done immediately the following day and cost more than 20,000 yuan. When Mr. Liu came home from the hospital, the villagers all realized that he was dying. He lost so much weight and became emaciated. He had no strength to walk and couldn't visit the neighbors' homes, which most of the villagers liked to do. He was just waiting to die.

The family had tried to seek various ways to prolong his life. Mr. Liu even started to worship Buddha but his condition did not change. At last, his wife thought of Falun Gong. She knew several Falun Gong practitioners in the village that had diseases cured after practicing Falun Gong. She wanted her husband to try it. She borrowed the books and exercise tape and helped her husband to practice Falun Gong. Soon a miracle happened. Mr. Liu gradually gained strength and his face looked much better. The family saw hope. All three family members, including their daughter, started to practice Falun Gong together. Several months later, Ms. Hu accompanied her husband to the hospital for a follow-up exam. The results were normal, with no trace of cancer. The whole family was happy and grateful for Falun Gong for saving his life.

In the fall of 1998, Ms. Hu's husband was able to help with light field work such as harvesting corn. The following year, his health improved dramatically and he was almost able to do heavy field work like other men in the countryside.

Ms. Hu proudly said that her husband still practices Falun Gong. It has been 10 years and he has remained very healthy. When Ms. Hu told me the story, her eyes were filled with happiness and appreciation. She told me that the whole family has quit the evil Chinese Communist Party. She repeatedly said that her family has benefited so much from Falun Gong.

Recovering from stomach cancer through practicing Falun Gong

My name is Li Xinshen (alias). I am 70 years old and a farmer from Dehui City, Jilin Province.

One day in the spring of last year, I had a recurrence of stomach pain. The pain had gotten much more severe. I had a hard time forbearing the pain. My children took me to Huide City Hospital to get an exam. The doctor diagnosed it as gastritis. Not convinced with the result, my children brought me to Changsun City. In the famous China-Japan Friendship Hospital, after the laboratory tests from the Pathology Department, I was diagnosed with stomach cancer. After staying in the hospital for over 10 days and spending more than 20,000 yuan, I left the hospital. The treatment was too expensive and was ineffective. I stayed at home and continued the injections and medications. However, I still suffered from the unbearable stomach pain. Finally, I refused to take any more medication. My condition became worse. The pain caused me to be restless and it was difficult to sleep. I became skinny and looked like a dying person.

My children started to prepare my funeral. The coffin and the grave clothes were even selected for me. My relatives and neighbors came to see me to say goodbye.

My wife practiced Falun Gong. I started to read the book Zhuan Falun while fighting with the stomach pain. Reading the book helped me pass time and forget the pain. When I couldn't fall asleep at night, I would read the book as well.

More than two months passed. On the 18th of June (lunar calendar), I felt the pain disappear. I was surprised but I also knew that Master was starting to take care of me because I read the book. This is the manifestation of a miracle and the extraordinariness of Falun Gong. After the pain subsided, I was able to eat more. Eventually I completely recovered. Since then, I truly believed in Falun Dafa.

Now I am a Falun Gong practitioner. From the bottom of my heart, I want to tell people, "It is Falun Gong that enabled me to recover and gave me a second chance at life!"

Not only did my neighbors and relatives witness my rapid recovery but they also witnessed that I have become as healthy and able as a normal person. This was inconceivable to them, and they inquired as to what medications or treatments I had received. I told them it was the mighty power of Falun Gong and the result of reading the Falun Gong books. Now I can do any type of field work. This year my wife and I planted corn. In the fall I was busy harvesting the corn, which surprised my fellow villagers. My children are relieved to see me so healthy and the whole family has become so much happier.

Here I want to tell everybody, based on my personal experience, "Falun Gong practitioners are all good people. Falun Gong teaches people to be kind and enables people to become healthy. I hope you all remember, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good! Please treat Dafa practitioners well; understand the truth and quit the Chinese Communist Party to keep your whole family safe and to have a wonderful future."
