(Minghui.org) I once teetered on the brink of death, and Falun Dafa saved me. I have been in good health for two years. Here is how it happened.

August of 2012 was a bittersweet time for me. My son received his college admission letter. After my husband passed away when my son was three, I had raised him on my own. I was so very proud of my son as he was entering adulthood.

Also in August, I could not hold anything down and was diagnosed with stomach cancer. I needed surgery. My son and I held each other and cried.

For his sake, I was determined to be strong. “My son, don't worry. Go to school. Your mother will be fine.” I told him that doctors had assured me that everything would be okay after surgery.

I had surgery on September 11. Doctors removed three-quarters of my stomach. I was still very weak when I was released from the hospital on October 1.

Three weeks later, I was back at the hospital. This time it was for gallstones. Doctors punctured a small hole in my gall bladder to draw out the fine-grained stones. Larger stones would require surgery, planned for the following year.

In November I began chemotherapy for the cancer, which lasted three months.

After the New Year, an old friend visited me. From the look in her eye, I could see that my appearance shocked her. I could understand: I was very thin, I wore many layers, and I carried a drainage bag for my gall bladder problem.

When I told her about my health problems, she said she had exactly what I needed. She gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun and a pamphlet and a DVD about Falun Dafa. She read some stories from the pamphlet about people who were blessed after repeatting, “Falun Dafa is good.”

“Falun Dafa is supernatural,” she said. “It will help you to overcome your troubles. You will experience a miracle if you are sincere.”

She called me that night and asked if I repeatted “Falun Dafa is good.” I had not, but I had read the pamphlet.

The next morning, I called her back excitedly. “I just had the best sleep that I've enjoyed for the past several months. Thank you very much!”

“Please thank the Master of Falun Dafa and remember to say, 'Falun Dafa is good.'”

I assured her that I would, and I did. I repeated “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” for ten minutes after every meal.

Then a miracle occurred. As I kept chanting, I felt better and better.

I began to sweat and had to remove layers of clothing. I recovered my strength. Soon I was able to wash clothes and sweep the floor.

I kept repeating the magic words. Once I said them nonstop for 20 minutes, and felt that my body was rotating and floating in the air.

Two days later, I could walk down the stairs of my apartment building. I was able to visit the market with my son. It was such a wonderful feeling to go outside again, which I hadn't been able to do for several months!

Looking at my happy son, I recalled the time that we cried out of desperation. Holding him in my arms, I could now laugh with tears of joy.

I noticed that the drainage bag for my gallstones was empty. I went to the hospital for a checkup. Doctors could not detect any more gallstones on the x-ray. After a few more checkups, doctors removed the drainage tube in April.

I now believe that my stomach cancer is also gone. I feel normal, I have gained weight, and I can now eat anything I want.

I am so grateful to Falun Dafa for saving my life. I want to tell everyone: “Falun Dafa is good!”
