(Minghui.org) As a young person, born in the 1970s, I had not considered learning Falun Gong, that is, until I developed a life-threatening tumor. However, the tumor turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as it prompted me to finally take up this wonderful practice.

I come from Fushun City, Liaoning Province. I went to the hospital to have an examination on June 6, 2012 , because I didn’t feel well and suffered night sweats. A doctor told me that I suffered from a serious pericardial effusion (fluid around the heart). I then had a comprehensive examination in a big hospital in Shenyang City. The exam indicated that I suffered from malignant thymoma, which was located near the heart arteries, and it was eight to nine centimeters in diameter. The doctor said that they were not able to operate because it was too close to the arteries and it was growing. The doctor suggested chemotherapy to slow its growth.

My parents and brother traveled from other cities to see me. My parents, who practice Falun Gong, said to me, “Only Falun Gong can save you now.” My mom also said, “This is an opportunity for you to start.” I agreed.

I already knew about the goodness of Falun Gong. Without Falun Gong, my parents would not have been able to live until today. They began practicing in 1996. When the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started to persecute Falun Gong in 1999, my father said to me seriously, “You cannot badmouth Falun Gong regardless of what people say about it.” I said to him, “I know how you gained good health from practicing Falun Gong. I know Falun Gong is good.”

In my work unit, whenever someone said anything bad about Falun Gong, I immediately said, “Do you know what Falun Gong is?” If he or she said no, I said, “If you don’t know about it, then what are you talking about?” I told people that it was not good for them to repeat the CCP's propaganda. The whole work unit knew that I did not allow people to say anything bad about Falun Gong.

When my parents encouraged me to practice Falun Gong this time, I had no hesitation at all. I started to learn the five sets of exercises and began to memorize Lunyu. I still had a lot of attachments and couldn’t let go of the fear of my illness. I was still on medication and chemotherapy.

I went to a hospital in Shenyang and had a comprehensive examination some time later. The exam showed that the tumor had shrunk. When I went there for a second exam, it showed that the tumor was one third its original size. The doctor said to me, “You no longer need any more examinations.”

I have committed myself completely to practicing and studying Falun Gong since then. My health is getting better all the time and I have more strength. I went back to work on January 4, 2013. When I went to the hospital for another physical exam in July, the tumor was hardly visible and had been calcified. My pericardial effusion had disappeared. I was normal and healthy once again!

Falun Gong saved my life. Master has saved me and gave me happiness and hope for the future. Without Dafa, I would not be here today. I want to tell everyone from the bottom of my heart that Falun Gong is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!

Thank you, Master, for saving my life!
