(Minghui.org) My wife developed a persistent cough and fever back in June 2012, and was treated with antibiotics. A CT scan revealed lung inflammation, so she was put on more drugs.

When I returned from an out-of-town job, my wife's symptoms had not improved. Another CT scan revealed a lump in her lung, which was diagnosed as lung cancer.

Health Worsens after Treatment

We opted for surgery, but further examination revealed that the cancer had already spread to other parts of her body. Surgery would not help her at this point.

The doctor suggested chemotherapy. I had heard about the side effects of chemotherapy, that it not only kills the cancer cells but also the normal cells, and also damages the patient's immune system. My wife was already weak, and I was concerned about how she would endure chemotherapy. I talked it over with other members of my family and we decided to try Chinese medicine.

The Chinese medicine doctor prescribed three months worth of Chinese medicine, but her cancer worsened after the three months, so we opted for the chemotherapy regimen. However, chemotherapy did not help either, and her condition continued to deteriorate. She was emaciated after the chemo treaments, having lost 16 pounds, she had no appetite, and she felt nauseous and vomited frequently.

Falun Dafa Gives Her New Life

We had lost all hope by the time I ran into a Falun Dafa practitioner. She told me the facts about Falun Dafa, and I told her about my wife. She advised me to encourage her to practice Falun Dafa and sincerely recite "Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good."

She gave me the audio lectures by the founder of Falun Dafa and Zhuan Falun, the main book of this cultivation practice.

This was not the first time I had heard about Dafa, and I knew that Falun Dafa practitioners were good people. I knew that Falun Dafa cultivated the mind and body, and Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Dafa, cleansed your body if you sincerely practiced Dafa cultivation.

“Your illness is incurable,” I told my wife. “I believe the only way for you to recover is if you practice Falun Dafa. But you have to truly cultivate. Only then will you benefit from this practice.”

She agreed and listened to the lectures daily. I read practitioners' cultivation experience sharing articles to her. I also invited Falun Dafa practitioners to my home to teach her the exercises.

She was very weak and in pain however, and it was difficult for her to do the exercises. She coughed, vomited, and was short of breath. The practitioners encouraged her and asked her to keep in mind, without any reservation, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”

The practitioners' compassion helped my wife overcome all obstacles, believe in Master and Dafa, and follow the Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. She studied the Fa, did the exercises, and sent forth righteous thoughts every day.

My wife underwent tremendous changes within five months. Her health improved and her appetite returned. She changed from a desperate, advanced-cancer patient, to a healthy person. Her complexion now glows. No one would guess that just a few months ago, she was on the verge of death.

Falun Dafa saved my wife. Dafa's merciful Master purified her body and saved her life. My very fortunate wife is now a Falun Dafa disciple.

Here, on behalf of my wife and my entire family, I would like to thank Dafa and Master for sparing us from the pain of losing a dear family member.
