(Clearwisdom.net) In 2005, my good friend Rupan fell ill very suddenly. She had a great deal of pain in her stomach and went to a hospital to have it checked out. Her problem was diagnosed as late-stage colon cancer. A fellow practitioner had a dream in which she was told that I should teach Rupan how to practice Falun Dafa, so I went to her home immediately. Her entire body was swollen and she barely had the strength to talk or walk. As soon as she saw me, she said sadly, "I do not want to die. I have not lived long enough yet."

Her words upset me. It also upset me to see her strong desire to live despite the pain she was enduring. Then I realized that I was a Dafa practitioner, and hadn't Master Li directed me to come and save her? I told her about the other practitioner's dream and the purpose of my visit. I also told her, "You have a predestined relationship with Dafa; it was Master Li who told me to come to save you. Only Falun Dafa can save your life and make you healthy again."

Rupan believed strongly in Dafa. I showed her how to do the exercises and I studied the Fa with her. We also laid out a simple plan for regular Fa study. Master Li said:

"As a genuine practitioner, however, you cannot practice cultivation with an ill body. I will purify your body. The body purification will be done only for those who come to truly learn the practice and the Fa." (Zhuan Falun)

Through diligent practice, Rupan's health recovered very quickly. Before practicing Dafa, she had serious arthritis--her knees were terribly swollen. The arthritis combined with the cancer made walking even a few steps very painful. It was very difficult for her to maneuver through her daily life. Since she obtained the Fa, she has been persistent and diligent in her practice and Fa study. Before practicing Falun Dafa, it was very difficult for her to climb up and downstairs. After she started practicing, however, she lived according to Master's words, "'When it's difficult to endure, you can endure it. When it's impossible to do, you can do it.'"(Zhuan Falun) Whenever she climbed up or down the stairs, with each step she repeated, "Falun Dafa is good!" As a consequence of her relentless efforts, one day, just a few weeks after she started practicing, she saw many Falun of different sizes fill an entire room, flying and twirling around near the ceiling. She was very excited about this and it gave her more confidence in Falun Dafa practice and study. She understood that it was Master Li who was trying to inspire her.

After several months of Dafa practice, Rupan was obviously getting better. She had more strength to walk, she could eat much more, and she was able to do every chore in her home. Now, as I write this, she is completely healthy. Even though she is over 70 years old, she walks like a young person. Not only is her cancer gone, Master Li also cleansed her body of possessing spirits and all her previous health problems, such as the pain in her legs and back and her diabetes.

In order to help spread Dafa and save sentient beings, Rupan and I clarify the truth by telling people about our own experiences. The tremendous changes that occurred in our bodies after practicing Falun Dafa help people with predetermined relationships understand the truth. Many of Rupan's family members know that Falun Dafa is good, and they have quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
