(Clearwisdom.net) On the evening of January 8, 2003, I detected a lump the size of a pigeon egg in my left breast. On Jaunary 17, my husband accompanied me to the hospital to have it checked out. I was admitted to the hospital that very day, and the next day I was operated on. After the surgery, a biopsy confirmed that it was breast cancer. I have since been entwined with illness.
As soon as the incision from the surgery healed, I began chemotheraphy. During that time, all of our savings was spent on treatment while I endured the torment of illness. By July 2003 I had finally completed the entire course of therapy, and the doctor agreed to let me check out of the hospital. By then I looked horrible from the ordeal. I had to hold on to the wall with my hands as I walked. An average person's white blood cell count is about 12,000, but mine had dropped to 500-600. I frequently had a high fever, and I had a sickly pale complexion. I had little hair left. I had to take medications all day long while bearing the physical and psychological pain. I often could not sleep at night, wondering what might happen to me next. I also had to look after my parents, parents-in-law and children. There were so many responsibilities I had yet to fulfill, and every day felt like a year.
It was then that my two older sisters told me that they had been practicing Falun Gong. They called me and shared with me the magnificant healing power of Falun Gong. They were convinced that Falun Gong would save me from the cancer. This is how I started practicing Falun Gong.
My sisters brought me a copy of the book Zhuan Falun, and often studied the book with me. They also taught me the Falun Gong exercises. When I ran into problems, they helped me understand the meaning. They also brought me materials containing important facts about Falun Gong. I have since been practicing Falun Gong. As I became inceasingly healthy, I developed a positive attitude towards life, and I decied to keep practicing Falun Gong.
I persevered in studying Falun Gong books and Teacher's articles, and practiced the Falun Gong exercises. I often reminded myself that I am a Falun Gong practitioner during the Fa-rectification period and that I should conduct myself according to Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance at all times.
I stopped taking medicine all together, and I became increasingly healthy. I truly felt the mighty power and miracle of Falun Gong. I am now perfectly healthy, and feel very agile. I have become perfectly healthy without taken any medicine. I don't feel tired after climbing up stairs. I also purged my foul temper.
My husband, older brother, older sister, relatives and friends had been worried about my health and constantly urged me to take medications. A year after I checked out of the hospital, I was prompted to have a physical exam. After contemplation, I went for a physical check-up on November 9, 2004. All signs showed I was in perfect health. Two health indexes indicated that my health was above average.
After receiving my health report, I started sharing important facts about Falun Gong with medical experts and professors. I shared with them how I made a miraculous recovery within a year after beginning Falun Gong cultivation practice. I told them that Falun Gong has given me a second lease on life. I also clarified the truth about Falun Gong to my relatives and friends. They have witnessed the power of Falun Gong in my recovery. My son actually kow-towed to Teacher in appreciation for Falun Gong giving his mother a new lease on life and giving him a complete, happy family.
In the years that followed, I felt guilty for letting Teacher and Falun Gong down when I was influenced by fame, wealth, and sentimentality, or other undesireable states. When this occurred I told myself, "Falun Gong extended my lifespan so that I can practice Falun Gong, not to enjoy life."
These words motivated me to study the Fa more, and cultivate myself better.
