(Clearwisdom.net) I recently began to practice Falun Gong and have since noticed tremendous changes in myself. I probably would not be here if it were not for Teacher's benevolent protection. I know Teacher saved me and my family.

I am 35 years old and was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The doctor said that the malignant cells had spread and I only had few months to live. I visited doctors in Jinan and Beijing, and they all said the same thing. I was so shocked! I could not accept the bad news, mentally or physically. I felt helpless watching my family feel sorry for me and thinking about my two young children. I spent a large sum of money and experienced a lot of pain undergoing chemotherapy. I had no desire to live and was merely waiting for the final moments.

In my worse moments of tribulation and despair, my husband said to me, "Why don't you practice Falun Gong?" I did not believe him initially because I had been misled by the propaganda and false rumors fabricated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) slandering Falun Gong. I also thought if the doctors were unable to cure my illness, then how could Falun Gong help me? Though I was doubtful, I decided to give it a try.

My husband obtained a copy of Zhuan Falun and the lectures on DVD from a practitioner. I read the entire book through to the last page where Teacher said,

"When it's difficult to endure, you can endure it. When it's impossible to do, you can do it."

"When you are overcoming a real hardship or tribulation, you try it. When it is difficult to endure, try to endure it. When it looks impossible and is said to be impossible, give it a try and see if it is possible. If you can actually do it, you will indeed find: 'After passing the shady willow trees, there will be bright flowers and another village ahead!'"

After reading the book, I saw light at the end of the tunnel and felt hopeful. I did not want to die and wished to cultivate. I thought that as long as I cultivated I could obtain salvation. Teacher mentioned in Zhuan Falun that Falun Dafa is a cultivation method for both the mind and the body. I repeatedly read Zhuan Falun and Hong Yin and found the meaning of life from reading the Fa. With the help of other practitioners, I learned the exercises. Prior to practicing Falun Gong, I hardly ever sweat, so my hands and feet were always cold. After I finished the five exercises I was sweating all over and felt very good.

I continued to study the Fa and listen to the lectures. I practiced the exercises every day, and Teacher constantly cleansed my body. When I studied the Fa I felt a sense of joy and excitement and regretted that I had learned it so late. Teacher's Fa makes so much sense. One should indeed be a good person and put others before oneself, let go of the pursuit of fame and profit. This is what I have been looking for.

I feel very fortunate, proud, and gratified to be able to practice Falun Gong. If it were not for the terminal illness, I would not have learned Falun Gong; I would not have seen the goodness of it or seen that the CCP had spread lies about it. Benevolent Teacher has enlightened me many times, sometimes through other people's words. He has also encouraged me to be more diligent in my dreams.

A few months after I began to cultivate, I saw a very large Falun in the middle of the night. As I fell asleep I saw hands dig into my mouth and pull out an evil spirit. It wanted to escape, but Teacher stopped it from running away and shredded it into pieces. I quickly yelled out, "Eliminate it!" "Teacher!" and I woke up. Teacher took away the sickness karma and cleansed my body. I felt very light after waking up. A few days later, Teacher thoroughly eliminated the sickness karma.

I was finally free of illness and felt good physically and mentally. Benevolent Teacher saved my life. If it were not for Dafa's salvation, could a person recover from a terminal illness? The hospital treatment only made me feel worse. Since I began the practice, I have not taken any medication or visited any doctors. My family and neighbors noticed my physical transformation and witnessed the miracles that Dafa brought. My temperament has also improved. I was a sad person before and had no energy. Now I'm full of joy and happiness. My family is grateful to Teacher and Dafa.

My life is good now because of Teacher's salvation. I will follow Teacher's guidance, be a good person, and strictly conduct myself according to the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I urge those who are deceived by the CCP to not be fooled by their propaganda. Listen to your conscience and stop persecuting practitioners.

These are my understandings and words from the bottom of my heart. Please kindly point out anything inappropriate.
