Recovering from a Rare Blood Disease
(Minghui.org) My niece was diagnosed with Evans syndrome in February 2012, a rare blood cancer where the antibodies attack the red blood cells and platelets. The child was treated with traditional, non-traditional and alternative medicines, but nothing brought relief. Then, she started to practice Falun Gong and she is now fully healthy again.
My niece initially had a persistent fever and other symptoms that were life-threatening. She was taken into the intensive care unit and put on intravenous fluids.
The child went through a number of treatment plans, but nothing helped. My sister finally lost hope and checked her daughter out of the hospital. She turned to traditional Chinese medicine and other forms of alternative medicine, but still nothing seemed to work.
Her condition worsened in early 2014 and the Chinese medicine doctor thought that it would be best to check the child into a hospital. However, since doctors in the hospitals had not given my sister any hope, she was devastated and at a loss as to what to do.
Practicing Falun Gong
I told my sister that if she truly believed that Falun Gong could make a difference in the child's condition, they should learn this practice. The child was very sick, which would make it difficult to study the Falun Gong books, so my sister had her watch a Shen Yun Performing Arts DVD, because she knew that it transmitted positive energy.
A few days later, my niece felt better. My sister and niece believed in Falun Gong, and they treated Falun Gong practitioners well, so their kindness was rewarded.
When I visited them in early 2015, we watched the 2013 and 2014 Shen Yun Performing Arts DVDs. They also studied the Falun Gong teachings and did the exercises with me. They even helped me distribute Falun Gong materials.
Strong Belief in Falun Gong
My niece started feeling unwell again a few days later and stayed in bed. I firmly believed that her body was being cleansed, even though it looked as if she was sick again. I talked to my sister, who told me that she believed only Falun Gong could save her daughter at that point. Her solid faith in Falun Gong was crucial.
I called them daily to encourage them to read and listen to Falun Gong teachings. My sister did the Falun Gong exercises daily, and their entire family sincerely repeated, “Falun Gong is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
The child was also very strong in her belief in Falun Gong, even when she felt miserable. I encouraged her to have faith in Falun Gong, but also told her that if she had doubts, she could go back to the hospital. She decided to trust Falun Gong.
The illness symptoms persisted for several days. I continued to encourage my sister and her child to keep listening to the Falun Gong teachings, and practice the exercises.
Besides the recurring symptoms, the child's stomach hurt and she ran a high fever. But my sister remained calm, and soon the child felt fine and could eat again.
They went to the hospital for tests, and my niece’s blood work returned normal results. It has been shown again that believing in Falun Gong brings great benefits.
