Thank You, Master Li, for Saving My Daughter's Life
(Clearwisdom.net) My daughter is nine years old. She is very lovely. She does well in school, and her teacher and classmates all love her. She loves to help with the household chores and enjoys helping others. She is the apple of our eye. Unfortunately, last year she stopped growing.
My wife is a doctor. We tried feeding her brand-name calcium tablets, as well as brand-name milk. Nothing helped. By the time she was in the third grade, she was almost a head shorter than her classmates. We took her to different children's hospitals in the metropolitan cities to be examined, but there seemed to be no reason for her problem.
One day, a friend suggested we take her to Shanghai Children's Hospital where the equipment and technology are considered the most advanced in the country. Examinations showed a tumor in her brain constricting her pituitary gland and affecting her development. As a doctor, my wife understood how serious the problem was, and she collapsed. My daughter was very scared and cried. I felt if I had crashed into a iceberg. After we calmed down, we went home with a few bags of prescription drugs.
My daughter became a different person. Even though she took the medicine every day, her appetite got worse. She talked less and less, and her grades in school dropped. She became weaker and weaker and began to suffer from frequent colds and headaches. We took her to the hospital every month for an examination. Twelve months later, the tumor hadn't gotten any smaller, and my daughter seemed to become more and more lethargic.
We were desperate when my wife's sister came to visit. She practiced Falun Gong and had been illegally detained in a labor camp for two years by the 610 Office. She had told us about Falun Gong before, but we believed the Communist Party's slanderous propaganda. Especially my wife--she refused to listen. My sister-in-law said to us, "I have made a special trip to come here to see your daughter. For over a year, you have tried hospitals, spending a lot of money. However, there has been no improvement in your daughter. Would you rather believe the evil Party's lies than save your child's life? You don't have to spend a fortune, and you don't have to make trips to the hospital. You just need to tell your daughter to say 'Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' Say it with her when you have time."
My wife and I looked at each other and said nothing. She assumed that we accepted the idea. She put an amulet (1) on our daughter and persuaded her to quit the Young Pioneers. Then she told her to say "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good." Without realizing it, we also followed her example.
When my daughter woke up the next day, both my wife and I noticed that her eyes were sparkling, and her cheeks had a rosy glow. She was very hungry for the first time in months. After the meal, we tried to give her her medicine. She said, "My illness is cured. My headache has gone away. I don't need to take any medicine." Her aunt also said, "Now that she is all right, why should she take medicine?" Although we were very happy with her recovery, we were still concerned and tried to convince our daughter to take the medicine, too. Since we insisted, her aunt could only shake her head gently.
On the fourth day, we went to the hospital for the regular, monthly CT exam. When the doctor got the CT film, he looked at it again and again. He asked us in surprise, "Have you taken her for any other treatment?" We were afraid that the tumor had gotten worse and asked, "What's wrong?" The doctor handed us the film and said, "Take a look for yourself. The tumor is gone!"
My wife and I grabbed the film and looked at it carefully. Yes, the tumor had disappeared. My wife burst into tears. The doctor said, "Never before has a brain tumor suddenly disappeared without leaving a trace. It's a miracle." Of course we knew what had happened. We thanked the doctor and went home, happy beyond words.
We immediately shared the good news with my wife's sister and asked her to thank Master Li Hongzhi for saving our daughter's life. We had witnessed the miracle of Dafa. We asked her to help publish our statements to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
Over the next two months, my daughter grew one inch. She became an excellent student again and quickly caught up in her school work. We invited our friends and relatives to a dinner party and shared our joy with them. We all witnessed the miracle and beauty of Dafa together. We gave a toast to thank Master Li Hongzhi for saving my daughter's life.
(1) Amulet - In China, practitioners sometimes clarify the truth by giving people something small to wear or cherish, bearing a few words reminding them of the goodness of Dafa.
