(Minghui.org) In April 2009, my older sister was diagnosed with advanced stage gastric cancer at the Hebei Province Chinese Medicine Hospital. The cancer had spread to her lymph nodes, and she was advised to have her stomach removed.

Everyone in our family was shocked when they heard about it. I went to my sister's and told her, “Sister, Dafa can save people. You should read the book Zhuan Falun and believe in Dafa; only Dafa can save you.” My sister said, “I will start reading the book right now.”

Two days later, my sister check in to Hebei Province Fourth Hospital (Hebei Cancer Hospital). She later told me, “For three days before the surgery I had no treatment. I read Zhuan Falun for those three days.”

My sister had four fifths of her stomach removed and was given intravenous fluids 24 hours a day. The intravenous fluids bothered her, so four days after surgery, they were discontinued. The tubes connected to her stomach, nose, and bladder were also removed. Doctors said some patients needed a feeding tube for more than six weeks, but by the seventh day my sister could even get out of bed and go to the bathroom by herself. She was discharged from the hospital in nine days.

After my sister returned home, she was very hungry and asked for steamed buns. No one dared to give her any. Instead, they only gave her liquids. My sister complained that she was so hungry. That was surprising, because she now only had one fifth of her stomach. A week after she got home, I took her to my house, and she started to study the Fa and do the exercises.

For the first two weeks after surgery, my sister was very weak. She appeared emaciated and had a yellowish complexion. However, when we studied the Fa, she read Zhuan Falun fluently and with energy. We would take turns reading, but my sister sometimes did not stop, not even giving me a chance to read. No matter how many pages she read, whenever I paused, she would jump in and continue. She did not seem like someone who had just undergone major surgery. Every morning, we studied the Fa and then shared a meal. Sometimes we sat in the lotus position on a mat in the living room for several hours.

After five days of Fa study, my sister's hands and feet appeared red. She was very excited about this because, for so many years, her hands and feet were cold, dry and cracked. At night, she usually needed a hot bath followed by oil and a plastic bag and socks on her feet. Even then, her feet did not stay warm all night. However, in just five days, she experienced dramatic changes that strengthened her determination to cultivate.

Following surgery, my sister's husband and another sister bought some expensive nutritional supplements for her. However, she did not feel good when she ate them and preferred regular food. She lived with me for a month and ate a lot at each meal. It is hard to imagine how a person with nearly all of her stomach removed could eat that much so quickly! That was the effectiveness of Faun Dafa.

Forty days post surgery, my sister had a through check-up, and everything was normal. Everyone in the family was so relieved! Five years have now passed, and my sister is very healthy. She is able to work two jobs and doesn't take any medicine or supplements.

It is Falun Dafa that gave my sister a second chance at life. We are grateful to Master Li Hongzhi and Falun Dafa. This account is written to validate the Fa. I hope everyone in the world will remember that Falun Dafa is good, and that Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. I hope everyone will have a good future.
