(Minghui.org) I read about Falun Dafa in the pamphlets left on my doorstep and Zhuan Falun, the main book of the teachings, several years ago. I didn't practice right away because I was held back by the idea of atheism that I grew up with.

What happened to my husband last year, however, turned me into a true believer.

When my husband was diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus in March 2014, the cancerous cells had already spread to his stomach. He had the tumor surgically removed.

Our relatives and friends who practice Falun Dafa urged my husband and me to give the practice a try because of its healing powers. I began to read Zhuan Falun and do the exercises. My husband also started to recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”

A few months later I talked to a neighbor and learned that her father also had cancer. He had been operated on in the same hospital my husband was in, and the doctor told them that his cancer hadn't spread.

I ran into her this past February and asked her how her father was. She told me that he had died about 10 days before.

I was stunned, because my husband's follow-up exam showed that he was completely healthy. I was overwhelmed by the miraculous healing power of Falun Dafa. While I was grateful for the practice, I blamed myself for not telling my neighbor about it. I thought that, if I had, perhaps her father would still be alive.
