(Minghui.org) I am 64 years old and live in Hebei Province. In 2011, I started to feel discomfort in my lungs. I went to Tangshan Hospital accompanied by my family and was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. At that time my family did not tell me what my diagnosis was because they were afraid I could not bear the blow.

They instead told me that I had advanced tuberculosis. The hospital asked for a pre-payment of 40,000 yuan to hospitalize me as an inpatient, regardless of whether they could cure me. When my family heard that the hospital wanted so much money with no assurance of whether they could treat my illness, they decided to take me home.

After I returned home from Tangshan Hospital, my illness became more serious. I vomited blood every few days and the vomit smelled terrible. Whenever I had money, I bought medicine. I took a lot of medicine, which then led to stomach problems. I also started buying and reading fortune-telling books, so I could find out when I would get better.

I was in despair. I was so exhausted and skinny that it seemed a gust of wind could blow me over. I was later hospitalized two times at Zunhua Hospital and spent a lot of money; however, my condition did not improve. Finally, the doctor said to my family: “Take him home. There is no cure. He is fading day by day.” Out of options, my family took me home.

Falun Dafa Saved Me

By chance on the morning of December 2, 2012, my sister-in-law (a Falun Dafa practitioner) gave me two wall calendars and asked me to take a good look at them. She told me the calendars were good for me. After she left, I read the miraculous stories in the calendars, page by page. In the evening, I dragged my sick body one step at a time to my sister-in-law’s home. I asked, “Are the stories in the Falun Dafa calendars true? Can cancer patients be cured?”

My sister-in-law answered, “As long as you sincerely recite, ‘Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ or truly cultivate Falun Dafa, miracles will happen.”

After hearing her words I went home. “I am a patient with late stage tuberculosis. I have been hospitalized three times, and I have almost exhausted all my family’s money,” I said to myself. “I have taken a lot of medicine, but I still throw up a lot of blood. The hospitals cannot cure me. Compared to those cancer patients in the stories, I can certainly be healed.”

The next morning, my sister-in-law came and gave me some Falun Dafa books. I started reading the books and came to realize that Falun Dafa teaches people to follow Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be good people. It was totally different from what was shown on TV! I realized that the communist party was telling lies.

Since then I have stopped watching television and wholeheartedly started cultivating Falun Dafa. I read the books at night with a flashlight (because turning on the lights might disturb others’ sleep). Miracles started to happen on the fifth day: My body felt comfortable and my appetite improved. I also disposed of all my medicine.

I thought, “Before, no matter whether I took medicine or not, I was waiting for my last day. After I started cultivation and my condition improved, I simply gave up all the medicine and cultivated Dafa!”

Since one flashlight was not enough I bought another two. At night I used the flashlights as my light source to learn the Fa. I did not sleep much. When I was really sleepy, I lay down in my full clothes and took a nap. From that day on, I started doing the exercises for four hours every day—once in the morning and once in the evening. Before the end of the year, I was able to walk around the village and I gained back my appetite. All the people who saw me said, “I did not expect you to still be alive.”

I have now totally recovered! The large lump on my chest also disappeared, and I eat more than a healthy person. When others see me, they all say, “You are really lucky; you look great.”

I tell them that Falun Dafa saved me, and I owe my thanks to Falun Dafa! I again thank Master for giving me a second life!
