(Minghui.org) I used to suffer from a variety of ailments, including an inflamed gallbladder and a growth in my breast. I didn't think about them much, as I spent all of my time on my business. This all changed the day I was diagnosed with late-stage thyroid cancer, and the doctor refused to give me further treatment.

A friend recommended Falun Gong and lent me the book Zhuan Falun. I read a few pages and thought that the principles discussed in the book were excellent. It was nothing like what I had heard from the Chinese Communist Party's propaganda. But as I was busy with my business, I didn't take up the practice.

I had an operation for my cancer. Six months after the operation, I had a relapse. My head and legs swelled, and my mouth was dry. I decided to go to a better provincial hospital. I took Zhuan Falun with me. I thought I might have time to read it at the hospital.

My doctor told me an operation would be an unnecessary expense, since the cancer was too advanced. He implied that I should just prepare to die. My husband comforted me, “Don't worry. I'll sell everything we have to find a cure for the cancer. Let's go to Beijing for treatment.”

Deep down, I thought nothing would help, and that there was no hope. It felt like the end of the world.

Then I remembered someone had told me that practicing Falun Gong could cure illnesses. I said to my husband, “There is nothing else to do except to practice Falun Gong.”

My husband doubted me.

My family was saddened to hear of my illness. When I said I was going to practice Falun Gong, my younger brother asked me, “Are you mental? Aren't you afraid of getting arrested?”

“If I don't practice Falun Gong, I'll be just waiting to die,” I replied.

In the autumn of 2005, I found Falun Gong practitioners, who taught me the exercises.

One of the symptoms of thyroid cancer is that the mouth feels dry all the time. As soon as I started to do the exercises, I sensed water in my mouth, and it tasted sweet. Tears streamed down my face.

My husband saw my tears. “What's going on?”

“These exercises are really amazing. A miracle happened. It's so great. How come I came upon it so late in my life?”

My legs were in excruciating pain when I did the sitting meditation. After a few days, I thought it was too hard and decided to stop the next day and rest.

That night, I had a dream. A doctor was operating on my neck, and he pulled out a big tumor. The next morning, my neck was no longer in pain. When I touched my neck, the bump had disappeared. The tumor was gone. My eyes filled with tears.

My husband did not believe me when I told him that the tumor had disappeared. He checked for himself and confirmed that it was true.

Now he tells people that his wife's cancer disappeared shortly after practicing Falun Gong. If someone has an illness, he advises them, “Find my wife and learn Falun Gong from her.”

After practicing for a short while, all of my other ailments disappeared. It is Master Li (the founder of Falun Gong) who gave me a new life.
