A Leukemia Patient's New Lease on Life
(Minghui.org) I was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia M4 with bone marrow eosinophilia (M4Eo) in 2006. This news was a terrible shock.
The treatment was a long, painful journey. After a dozen chemotherapy treatments, which did not yield good results, the side effects caused all sorts of health problems: hair loss, mouth ulcers, gastrointestinal bleeding, blood in urine and stool, a constant high fever, and incontinence.
Moreover, my family met with severe financial hardship due to the high cost of the treatments. Years of suffering was killing me, and I felt I would rather be dead.
The doctor told my husband, "There's no point for her to continue chemotherapy, since it's not working. We cannot do anything, so it's better for you to take her home."
Giving up on hospitals, we looked into other means of treatment. When my husband heard that one type of qigong could heal illness, he got a book on it. He started to practice and wanted to see whether it would work before letting me do it. Every morning he did the exercises, but six months later, he did not see any positive effects and gave up.
A Choice for Hope
Just when we saw no more hope, a relative brought us Falun Dafa's main book, Zhuan Falun. He told us that a miracle would occur if we recited from our hearts, "Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good."
My husband and I were afraid. We knew about the Chinese Communist Party's persecution of Falun Dafa. We feared that practicing Dafa would cost us our jobs. But I felt that I had no alternative. Clutching at straws, I began to read Zhuan Falun and learned the five sets of Dafa exercises.
I did the exercises every morning and evening, even when I was at my weakest point. I did not feel well physically, but I gritted my teeth and continued.
A week later, we saw obvious changes in my body, and doing the exercises became easier. I was able to do some light housework. People around me were very happy for me. I was determined to continue the practice.
Nine years have passed, and I am now in perfect health! My husband and I visited the hospital where I was treated. The head physician was so surprised when he saw me. He said the recovery rates for cases like mine are near zero. The doctors, nurses, and patients all said it was a miracle.
I told them that it was Master Li (the founder of Falun Dafa) who let us see the wonder of the practice.
