(Minghui.org) I had been treated for laryngitis for some time, and went to the Beijing 301 Hospital in April 2010 for a check up. However, the diagnosis report concluded that I had thyroid cancer and that it had spread to my lymph node. I was truly shocked. Fear and desperation descended upon me. I came out of the hospital and burst into tears. I had been weak and ill since my childhood. I had two operations and suffered from tuberculosis, gynecological diseases and often had a slight fever. I had seldom enjoyed a day of complete health. Now in my forties, I was diagnosed with a terminal illness.

I had an operation to remove the cancerous tumor and was in a terrible mood when I returned home. I used to be good at singing and dancing. However, I lost my voice and had little saliva after the operation. I suffered from headaches, backaches and pain in my joints. My ears were ringing and no part of my body felt good. I stared at the stack of medicine that I had to take every day, and became upset and irritable.

One of my close friends heard about my situation, and immediately came to visit and console me. She suggested that I practice Falun Gong, and told me many stories about how people recovered from cancer, skin disease and diabetes by practicing Falun Gong. I loved to hear about those miracles. In fact, I had learned Falun Gong before. However, many years of brainwashing by the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) atheism stopped me from practicing after the CCP started the persecution against Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. Now my friend's sharing gave me new hope.

From then on, I visited this friend almost every day, and spent most of my time reading the book Zhuan Falun and watching Master Li Hongzhi's Fa lectures. The more I read the book, the more I loved it. I couldn't put the book down. After learning and practicing the five sets of exercises every day, my health started to show marked improvement. Countless Falun were rotating around my body and often a sudden, warm current went from the top of the head through my whole body. I could feel filthy stuff being cleansed, peeling away from my body layer by layer. I had never felt so wonderful in my life. I asked my friend what it was. She told me, “Master Li was cleansing your body and removing your illnesses. It's a good thing. Cultivate well, as Master Li is taking care of you.”

Three months passed by, and I almost forgot about my illness. Every day was spent reading Falun Gong books and practicing the exercises. I followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in my daily life. Gradually, I was no longer irritable, my temper subsided and I could tolerate things better. My sickly yellow face became pure and white, with a healthy, rosy glow. When I walked, my body felt as light as a feather and was full of energy.

Experiencing these incredible changes in myself, I am deeply grateful to Master Li Hongzhi. I obtained Falun Dafa when I felt the most hopeless and desperate. But now I have found the purpose of my life. Who said there are no Gods? Who said there are no miracles? Had I not practiced Falun Gong, the cancer could have spread and I would have died a long time ago. My family members, friends and classmates have learned about how my cancer was cured by practicing Falun Gong, and several friends have also started to practice.

One of my classmates suffered from a rare disease called “spasmodic torticollis”. He had stiff neck and it was difficult for him to talk. He stayed at home all day and was in a lot of pain. I introduced Falun Gong to him and brought him the precious book Zhuan Falun . He eagerly read the book and practiced the exercises. In just one month, his neck became normal. He had spent a fortune, trying all kinds of medicines and surgery, but nothing had helped. Now he has recovered by practicing Falun Gong.
