(Minghui.org) I started to practice Falun Gong in 1998 when I contracted stomach cancer. It soon disappeared.

A year later, a doctor told me I’d had a stroke after being tortured in prison for refusing to give up my belief. It, too, went away.

Here I would like to share how this all happened.

How I Found Out about Falun Gong

I returned from being treated for cancer at Wuhan Hospital on April 27, 1998. It was 4:00 in the afternoon, and my wife was still at work. I started to cook dinner for our children.

Suddenly I felt someone grab my shirt and drag me backwards. I lost a slipper.

I thought someone was teasing me and became irritated. When I looked back at the stove, I saw a ceiling panel had fallen down right where I had been standing. It smashed into the pan on the stove and filled the room with dust.

I saw something rotate but didn't know what it was.

I later met a friend and told him about the incident. “I could have died,” I said.

He listened to me and then showed me the book Zhuan Falun. He opened the book and pointed to the picture of the Falun on the second page. “Is this what you saw rotating?”

That was it!

“Take the book home and read it,” he said. “Master Li [the founder of Falun Gong] saved you.”

I only attended school for two years. There were many Chinese characters I could not read, but I just kept reading Zhuan Falun as much as I could. It was so precious to me that I couldn't stop crying.

Five days later, I saw my friend again and asked him to teach me the exercises. At that time, I was in the late stages of stomach cancer, and the pain was often torturous. Once I read Zhuan Falun and began to do the exercises, however, the pain gradually subsided.

One day I met a friend who was also a doctor. “I remembered you had stomach cancer,” he said. “Which hospital cured you?”

“No hospital. I practice Falun Gong.”

He was amazed.

Stroke Disappears

The Chinese Communist Party launched the persecution of Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. I was soon arrested and sentenced to 8 years in prison.

One day I suddenly passed out after being tortured. The hospital said I’d had a stroke. The division head ordered me to apply for a medical parole, but I refused. “I'm innocent. Why do I need to get bailed out?”

My request for unconditional release, however, was turned down.

I kept reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” in the days that followed.

The prison later sent me to the hospital again, and the doctors couldn’t believe that my stroke symptoms were all gone. They asked me how this miracle happened. I replied that the head of the prison division knew exactly what happened.

The head told them, “All he did was recite ‘Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness- Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
