(Clearwisdom.net) In 1993 my wife had CT and MRI scans at Yiyang City Central Hospital in Hunan Province. The scans revealed a tumor growing on her brain. The tumor was pressing on one of her nerves, causing her to have headaches, and it made her face swell. Dr. Huang, a brain surgeon, wrote on her medical report: "1. Only surgery can solve the problem. 2. No medicine is effective. 3. Patient can come to me directly when ready for surgery."

I felt really sad after I saw this report. From my own experience of medical practice, I knew that even successful surgery could not guarantee her a complete recovery. Most likely the problem would reappear later and the patient would end up wasting more money and still suffer from the problem. So I decided that my wife should not have the surgery. Instead, I took her to see, Mr. Liu Bingfan, the nationally renowned Chinese medicine expert from the Hunan Chinese Medicine Institute in Changsha City, Hunan Province. There, she was prescribed Chinese medicine.

In 1996 my wife's situation drastically deteriorated. The right side of her face and head swelled up and became darker in color. The slightest bit of light, sound, or touch would cause her extreme pain. I asked Director Chen of the Brain Surgery Department to give her treatment to stop the pain, but he said that it would not help and would only put her life in greater danger.

When we had exhausted all our resources and saw no hope, someone suggested that my wife learn Falun Gong. I knew that many people practiced Falun Gong and had benefited from it, but I was a doctor and concerned with being laughed at for resorting to qigong exercises. However, since we had no other option, I decided to give it a try. Without telling anyone, I brought home Dafa books and audiotapes of Teacher's Fa lectures. From that day on, my wife and I started our cultivation.

We have now been studying the Fa and doing the exercises for thirteen years. My wife would not be alive today had she not cultivated Dafa. The mercy and kindness that Teacher showed us is higher than a mountain and deeper than the sea. Today, as we are assisting Teacher to rectify the Fa, we promise to be more diligent in Fa study so that we will understand the Fa better and do well the three things and be worthy of Teacher's saving grace.
