(Clearwisdom.net) I am from Hebei Province and was honored as an outstanding teacher at the provincial level. I was forced to retire at the age of 49 due to illness. I suffered from cancer and had four operations. The county hospital, as well as Beijing hospitals Nos. 301 and 307 (both military facilities) all had my medical and operation records.

Numerous treatments and several operations all failed to cure my illness. On the contrary, the illness was getting worse. I was on the verge of death. My family had been pretty well off. However, the treatments, including radiation therapy, operations, and expensive medicines not only used up all of our savings but left us debt-ridden.

The chemotherapy and the radiation therapy weakened my bones and resulted in hair loss. The radiation burned my chest and back. Finally, experts said, "You have cancer cells all over you. Just go home and rest." The hope for life burst like a bubble. I simply abandoned myself to despair. The physical trauma and the psychological sufferings left me in total despair. Every time I thought of my situation, my shirt would be soaked with sweat. On seeing my suffering, my family could only shed tears. They were all heartbroken.

I was paralyzed and couldn't take care of myself. It was 1996, and I had been discharged from the hospital for two months. I was aching all over. I thought to myself, "My life is at its end. My time is limited." My father, who was 80 years old, of course wanted a healthy daughter to take care of him in his old age. My two children also needed their mother's care. How could they live without a mother? I cried whenever I thought of these things. Time was ticking away.

In the spring of 1997, my cousin brought me a copy of Zhuan Falun. Since I had no strength I could not exercise. My cousin said, "As long as you study the Fa, cultivate your xinxing and act in line with what Teacher says in the book, you can heal your illness and keep fit. Teacher will help you to purify your body." After my cousin left I began to read Zhuan Falun and I listened to Teacher's Fa lectures in Guangzhou with a mentality of giving it a go.

Not long after listening to Teacher's lectures I thought, "I must follow Teacher's words and not treat myself as a patient, but as a practitioner." Miracles did happen because of this thought. Since I was very weak, I lay down to rest. However, all of a sudden I was unable to move and I could not even open my eyes. I did not know what had happened. However, I was very conscious, but could not talk. At the time there was no one at home. All of a sudden a thought struck me that at the time of danger you can ask Teacher for help and Teacher is certain to take care of you. However, I could not produce any sound and my tongue could not move. It took a long time, but I brokenly said "Teacher" three times. Right at that time I felt something sweep through the area where I had had surgery. I felt as if I was charged by electric shocks all the way down to my toes. Shortly after, I felt that my hip swept up and I had exactly the same feeling. Though I could not speak I knew clearly in my heart that Teacher was purifying my body. I could not restrain my tears, but I knew that these were tears of happiness. A few minutes later I awakened. I then found that I could stand up and walk. My excitement at the time was beyond description. I took out a towel and repeatedly said "Thank you Teacher!" while wiping away my tears. I made a wish at the time: "To follow Teacher and cultivate Dafa through to the end!" Teacher saved me from death without charging me a penny. I will do my best to pay reverence to Teacher.

People in my hometown were really shocked to learn the news of my recovery, saying that Falun Gong was really miraculous. As a result, many people began to learn Falun Gong. We set up a Fa study group. Six months later I rode 15 kilometers on my bike home. When the villagers saw me, they thought that I was totally changed into a new person. The number of practitioners at our practice site jumped from twenty-some people to 87. The courtyard was filled with people.

The wicked Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began to persecute Falun Gong in July 1999. I went to Beijing twice to validate the Fa with my own experience. I wanted to let the people in the whole country know that Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa and ask them to restore Teacher's good name. Wherever I went, I would talk about my experience.

My workplace and the education commission, under the influence of the CCP, said that I "made trouble" for them. They locked me up in a detention center and brainwashing center for fear that I would go to Beijing to appeal again. They pressured me to renounce Falun Gong and write a Guarantee Statement. I told them, "You found the wrong person. I am the one who will never betray Dafa and our Teacher! This is the basic norm of being a human being." While in the detention center I refused to memorize the prison rules and regulations, I refused to line up or to report to the prison guards. I told them, "We are not criminals and we did not violate any laws. The freedom of belief is a fundamental human right. I only spoke fairly for Falun Gong. How come you do not even let a person go who had a miserable past because of advanced cancer and eventually gained new life and health through practicing Falun Gong? Where is the truth and where is your human nature?"

Due to abuse in detention, I was left with a lump on my shoulder and half of my body was black and blue. I was taken home by two principals.

Now our whole family has assimilated to Dafa and has withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliated organizations. My husband goes with me to clarify the truth and persuade people to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. He said, “Some day, the people around the world will look at Falun Dafa and Dafa practitioners with new eyes.”
