(Minghui.org) My husband and I began practicing Falun Dafa over ten years ago. Since then, we've never taken any form of medication.

In 2013, my husband's sister was diagnosed with colon cancer and underwent surgery. Her cancer unfortunately relapsed in 2014, and spread throughout her body. While she was hospitalized, she suffered severe abdominal pains. Her two brothers were very worried for her and took turns visiting her in the hospital.

Her doctor discussed the prospect of performing a followup surgery to remove her cancerous lesions. However, she was very reluctant to go that route, as she was already in her 60s and in ill-heath.

It was an extremely emotional time for her and her family. My husband and I talked to her about practicing Falun Dafa, telling her that we had felt that it could help her recover from her illness. However, she was very doubtful that her cancer could be cured without taking some form of medicine.

One night, my husband talked to his brother about having her stay at our home. “You know, doctors have no way to cure our sister's illness,” he explained. “She is afraid of dying from another surgery and worries about her son being left alone at home. I wish she would practice Dafa with us. We can take care of her. Why don't you talk with her and see what she thinks about the idea.”

The next day, my brother-in-law visited her in the hospital. She agreed to give Falun Dafa a try. From previous conversations with us about the benefits of Falun Dafa, she knew that the practice is very powerful.

When my sister-in-law told her doctor that she wanted to be discharged from the hospital, he initially did not agree. He allowed her to leave only after she agreed to take some prescribed medicine, and sign a waiver releasing the hospital from any and all medical and financial liability.

When she and her brother left the hospital, they drove directly to her residence, packed a small suitcase of clothes and personal items, then came to our home.

My husband and I read one lecture of Zhuan Falun with her every evening. We also taught her the Falun Dafa exercises. We never told her to stop taking her medications.

After 20 days my sister-in-law exclaimed, “I believe I'm fine now. I don't feel any pain anywhere in my body. This is marvelous! Master Li saved my life! I can now take care of myself and my son. I should go home.”

Before leaving she told us, “I did not take any of the medicine that the doctor had given me when he released me. It was Falun Dafa that healed me! Now, I finally understand why both of you remain steadfast in practicing Falun Gong, despite the severe persecution. Falun Dafa saves lives! Falun Dafa is great!”

After witnessing the miraculous effects of practicing Dafa, her brother signed a petition calling for an end to the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) persecution of Falun Dafa, and an end to the practice of live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners. “I will always support Falun Gong,” he said.

Her son was surprised by her quick recovery and agreed to quit the Communist Party's Youth League. He even helped his mother talk to friends and relatives about quitting the CCP and its affiliated organizations. He told them, “Please remember that Falun Dafa is great!”
