(Minghui.org) My 65-year-old father was diagnosed with a lung tumor on February 12, 2014, after he failed to recover from a month-long cough. Our whole family was saddened by the bad news, but fortunately, Falun Dafa brought us hope. After two months of practicing Falun Dafa, my father's tumor disappeared.

The Tumor

My father developed a bad cough on January 20, 2014. Although the situation didn't seem serious, my mother suggested bringing him in for a medical examination, as he was usually healthy and had never gotten a cough this bad before. She also hoped that with the right medication, he could recover in time for Chinese New Year.

The doctor told us that it was a mild case of pneumonia and could be cured via infusion for a few days. However, the cough did not get better, and it was still around for Chinese New Year.

Although my father didn't experience much physical discomfort, I had an uneasy feeling and just had to bring him to the hospital again. This time, after taking the CT scan, the doctor told us to visit a larger hospital for a more comprehensive examination.

I sensed that something was wrong and brought my father to the city's hospital immediately, and my premonition turned out to be right: the result showed that my father had a 5CMX1.8CM (1.96InX0.7In) lung tumor.

The news came like a bolt from the blue, and we didn't quite know what to do. A friend in the city hospital proposed going to Beijing for treatment, as there may be hope for us in a bigger hospital. We packed our things and took off, hoping that she was right.

The hospital in Beijing classified it as a case of “non-small cell lung cancer”. We were told to return home for chemotherapy, as the cancer too close to the main blood vessels to be operated on. Our hearts shattered upon hearing the news.

A Glimmer of Hope

It was Falun Dafa that finally brought hope to us.

The wife of my father's nephew – my sister-in-law – is a Falun Dafa practitioner. My mother was also a practitioner along with my sister-in-law before the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started persecuting Falun Dafa in 1999.

I had also read Zhuan Falun before, but regrettably, it hadn't been enough for me to become a practitioner as well.

However, I did ask my sister-in-law to write down the verses for sending forth righteous thoughts for me, so I could chant it when I was uncomfortable. I also read the verses when I have the time.

After my father returned home from Beijing, my mother gave that piece of paper to him and asked him to try memorizing it. He agreed and memorized it, and would also recite it whenever he has the time.

Deep down in his heart, he feared this illness a lot and often mumbles, “Everyone will definitely die but I'm only 65. Isn't that a bit too early?”

Now, with the belief that divine beings will save him, he had no choice but to practice Falun Dafa – the practice that he once rejected.

Miraculous Recovery

My sister-in-law sent over the “The Great Way of Spiritual Perfection” DVD and a few Falun Dafa books after learning of my father's situation. She told him to let go of this attachment to his illness and to no longer think about it. Instead, she said, he should practice Falun Dafa diligently, as only Master and Dafa could save him.

My sister-in-law often told us the facts about Dafa previously but our family, especially my father, were deceived by the lies fabricated by the CCP . But now, my father has accepted Falun Dafa in order to live on.

My mother was afraid that my father couldn't persist and accompanied him everyday for at least five hours in doing the exercises, reading the Fa, and sending forth righteous thoughts.

My father says that he loves reading Zhuan Falun very much and practices the exercises in their entirety. He didn't stop even when he was hospitalized for chemotherapy.

A month passed and we realized that father's cough had become less pronounced. One and a half months later, he said, “I've recovered! I used to feel suffocated every evening but now that feeling is gone.”

We became even more firm in practicing Dafa after seeing the change in him.

On March 13, 2014, exactly two months after the diagnosis, we went with him for the third course of chemotherapy. The doctor requested to have a scan on the effect of the first two courses.

When the results came out, the doctor was surprised.

“Was there a misdiagnosis? These scans look nothing like each other!” he exclaimed. “Previously, the right trachea was almost completely blocked, and now the tumor can't even be seen. The trachea is cleared and the lung area is smooth. This is too amazing!”

Tears flowed out as I told my parents the wonderful news. We all broke down in happy tears.

My father said gratefully, “I must spread this Fa – this Fa that saves so many people, and gives true salvation to the sufferers! Dafa gave me a second chance. I must cherish it and cultivate diligently”

My mother and I were greatly moved – a family who had brushed past Dafa for 16 years had finally realized its true value.

Benevolent Master, words cannot express our gratitude to you. The least we can do is to listen to your words and walk our paths of cultivation correctly, so that you will not be disappointed.

Thank you, Master! Thank you, Dafa!
