(Minghui.org) My mother is 77 years old and lives in the countryside. She is healthy and able to cook and do her own housework. Nobody can tell that 12 years ago, she was a late-stage lung cancer patient.

It was the beginning of May of 2004 when my mother began to feel sick. She did not have any energy and could not eat much. But she did not mention it until the busy farming season had slowed down.

My brother and sister took Mother to the hospital on May 28 and she was diagnosed with lung cancer. Since the tumor was too close to the heart, it would be dangerous to do surgery.

Mother refused surgery; instead, she wanted to try Falun Gong since my elder sister, who is also a practitioner, had told her about the power of the practice. Our mother did have minor surgery to release the fluids in her lung, then went home after eight days in the hospital.

My uncle wanted to stop her because he believed the government-controlled media's lies about Falun Gong. But after I told him about Falun Gong and the fact that the self-immolation incident was staged, he no longer objected.

I brought our mother to my home. At the beginning, she still had IV infusions and took medicine every day. But she listened to Master's lectures at the same time. Twenty days later, she stopped her medication and began to learn the exercises. She was so weak that she was unable to stand steadily, and had to lean against something while learning the standing exercises.

A few days later. She was able to do the standing exercises by herself. Her complexion improved and she developed a good appetite. She could even stroll around and went out and talked to the neighbors. My brother and sister-in-law were really happy to see her improvement and were amazed by the power of Falun Gong.

After staying at my home for 40 days, my mother insisted on going back home since the busy harvest season was about to start. She continued practicing Falun Gong after she went back and soon recovered completely. She has not taken any medication since then.

When I went back to visit Mom last month before Chinese New Year, she made dinner for me. When one of the neighbors stopped by and saw her busy cooking, she was surprised at how healthy my mother was.

My whole family thanks Falun Gong and Master Li for saving our mother.
