(Minghui.org) During the second half of 1996, Falun Dafa began to spread rapidly by word of mouth throughout Ningde City in Fujian Province, China.

Falun Dafa’s remarkable healing power and ability to uplift the mind created an unprecedented fervor in this area for learning the practice.

I. Terminal Cancer Cured

1. Ms. Wei Shuxian—Uterine Cancer

Ms. Wei Shuxian had uterine cancer. Her condition was serious. She was subject to sudden chills and fevers. She lost a lot of blood through heavy bleeding. She was completely devoid of energy.

Wei was checked into the Fuzhou Women and Children Hospital for 100 days, but even with a large amount of money spent, her condition remained unchanged.

She had no choice but but to return to her hometown.

In the local Xiapu Hospital, Wei went through another year of radiology and chemotherapy.

Not only did she not get any relief, but she also developed frozen shoulder and osteoarthritis.

She would exert all her strength, but could barely make a few steps. She could not even hold herself up when she tried to stand.

By then, to her, living was worse than death.

She and her family were fully aware that she was basically waiting to die.

In 1997, Wei started Falun Dafa practice. She began to feel relaxed within a few days.

From then on, she improved on a daily basis. Within two months, she was completely recovered. She practically floated when she walked.

Eighteen years later, she is still alive and well, and without any medical treatment.

One day on October 2012, Wei was on her bicycle when a large tuck hit her and pulled her under. The driver was scared stiff.

Wei crawled out from under the truck and said to the driver, “I practice Falun Dafa. I’m okay. You can leave.”

Wei announced with deep gratitude, “It’s Dafa and Master who saved me again!”

Wei was originally an illiterate. After she began practicing Falun Dafa, she was able to read through Falun Dafa’s main text Zhuan Falun and a large amount of other Dafa writings.

She said, “Dafa is absolutely miraculous! It’s truly magnificent! I will cultivate Dafa to my last breath!”

2. Ms. Huang Nenzhu—Uterine Cancer

1992 was a most difficult year for Ms. Huang Nenzhu. She was tortured with continuous ill health. Finally, she went for a checkup at Ningde City Hospital. The diagnosis was: uterine cancer.

She was devastated. She felt her sky had fallen. She didn’t know what to do.

To save her life, her husband went borrowing so she could go to the provincial hospital.

There, she stayed for three months. After spending all the borrowed tens of thousands of yuan without any cure, she was discharged.

Her main physician declared her incurable. Her family was told, “She has not much longer to live. There’s nothing more we can do. Go home and prepare for her funeral.”

Just about that time, somebody introduced Falun Dafa to her. Wei figured, “I’m going to die anyway. Why not give it a try?”

Wei was illiterate, but with help from practitioners, she was able to read Falun Dafa’s books and other writings. She learned the five sets of exercises.

Miracles happened. Her uterine cancer disappeared, with not a yuan spent!

Wei and her family were deeply grateful to Falun Dafa for saving her life!

3. Ms. Zeng Qiaofeng—Skin Cancer

Ms. Zeng Qiaofeng teaches at a university. She contracted a serious skin disease in 1996. It was diagnosed later as skin cancer. She had been to several well-known hospitals in Beijing and Shanghai to seek treatment but without success.

In fact, because of an overdose of hormones, she developed severe anemia. On top of that, because her entire body was covered with ulcers, people began to stay away from her.

Zeng struggled to live but felt each day felt like a year. At a young age, she fell into a state of utter despair.

1998 was a lucky year. Zeng found Falun Dafa and started cultivation practice.

Her skin cancer, anemia, and ulcers all disappeared. With the heavy burden of sicknesses lifted, she finally experienced the blessing and joy of how it feels to be well. She even grew prettier.

Friends and family witnessed her transformation and many of them took up the practice.

After the Communist Party launched its persecution of Falun Dafa, Zeng was illegally arrested four times and sent to brainwashing center twice, but nothing has managed to shake her faith and she remains steadfast in her belief.

II. Strange and Stubborn Illnesses Vanish

1. Ms. Yuan Qiandi--Sudden Dead Faint

Ms. Yuan Qiandi was very sick before April 21, 1999. When it was serious, Yuan would suddenly fall into a dead faint. Every time, it would take her at least several days before she could get out of bed.

Her condition got worse as the years went by. Then, it would be two weeks before she could get out of bed.

She had stomach problems, with frequent bowel movements.

Later, she couldn’t eat anything except soft and fluid food. So, she basically lived on rice porridge.

She was also riddled with anemia, dizziness, headache, dental pain, hypertension, heart palpitation, athlete's foot, skin diseases, hemorrhoids, and so on.

On top of that, her husband had already died of cirrhosis, her daughter-in-law divorced her son and left behind a six-month old baby, who fell under her care.

Calamities one after another kept falling on her fragile shoulders. Yuan was feeling incapable of finding a way out.

April 21, 1999 was a most memorable day for Yuan. It was that day she decided she would go to her elder brother to borrow some money, and leave the baby with the maternal family to raise for a while.

She happened to pass by Xianyu Park and see people practicing Falun Dafa.

Somebody had told her Falun Dafa is very good, so she decided to give it a try.

Very soon, all her illnesses were gone.

Yuan listens to Master Li’s teachings to live in accordance with Dafa’s principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to be a better person. Her life was turned around for the better.

After the persecution began in July 1999, Yuan went to Beijing on July 17, 2000, to appeal for the right to practice Falun Dafa. She was arrested in Tiananmen Square, thrown into a police van and beaten before she was locked up in the police station for three days without food or drink.

Later, she was thrown into the detention center for 15 days. The 900 yuan she had was taken away.

From then on, she had been abducted several times and sent to a brainwashing center, where they tried to force her to write statements to renounce Falun Dafa.

Home raids become a frequent occurrence since then. Despite it all, she remains determined in her practice of Falun Dafa.

2. Ms. Liu Yujiao—Rare Roundworm Disease

When she was young, Ms. Liu Yujiao had contracted a strange roundworm disease. No medical treatment could cure her.

Once the disease attacked, Liu would lose consciousness. After she was rescued, it would take her two to three days before she could fall asleep.

Her hands and feet would shake. They would also get swollen. She would throw up. She felt terrible pain. She would also have severe cramps.

That condition would show up five, six times every year. She was getting to the point where living seemed harder than dying.

However, as soon as she started to practice Falun Dafa, within two months, she completely recovered. The mysterious roundworm disease that had caused her so much pain and suffering, and that nobody could offer any cure or relief, was just gone. It is truly incredible and inexplicable.

More than a dozen years later, she has not experienced any recurrence. She continues to enjoy excellent health.

After she became a Falun Dafa practitioner, Liu has lived her life in accordance with Dafa’s teachings to be a good person at all times.

She was originally quite bad tempered. Her nagging was so bad even she couldn’t stand herself.

Now, she is changed. She is good-natured. She is calm and cool no matter what happens. She feels relaxed. She takes care of her family and does all the household chores.

During the difficult years of persecution, despite being abducted when she traveled to Beijing, being thrown into the detention center, being caged like an animal for six days while sleep deprived, and being held in a forced labor camp for two years, she continues to keep her faith in Dafa.

3. Ms. Ye Saitao—Rare Behcet’s Disease

Ms. Ye Saitao had always been weak and sickly. She used to suffer from rhinitis, nasal polyps, osteoarthritis, arthritis, lumbar, dizziness, and a rare disease known to Western medicine as Behcet’s disease.

She heard that the military hospital in Fuzhou specialized in this disease, so she went there for treatment. She spent about 8,000 yuan, but it didn’t work.

She tried qigong. That didn’t work either.

When she was in deep distress, not knowing what to do or where else to turn, Ye’s luck changed. She got hold of Falun Dafa’s main text Zhuan Falun and read it through.

She understood the meaning of life, learned how to look inward, and started to live her life according to Dafa’s teachings, using Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance to measure her thoughts and action and to put others before herself.

Soon the diseases that had been giving her so much grief for over a decade all disappeared without a trace.

She is now healthy and energetic, fully enjoying for the first time the feeling of being illness-free.

4. Mr. Pan Yongfeng—Epilepsy

When Mr. Pan Yongfeng was a teenager, he came down with epilepsy. From then on, he had to take medication every day.

He suffered seizures in which he would lose consciousness, have full body convulsions, and he would be foaming at the mouth. It got worse every time.

Pan didn’t dare to imagine what the future held.

However, in 1998, Pan started to practice Falun Dafa, and a new life was opened up for him.

After he finished reading Falun Dafa’s main text Zhuan Falun, he began to experience physical improvements.

With diligent Fa study and exercise, Pan underwent a complete change. All his disease symptoms disappeared.

5. Ms. Yao Guangping—Torturous Chronic Hiccups

Before Ms. Yao Guangping found Falun Dafa, she suffered from all kinds of illnesses that included lumbar disc hernia, breast tumor, gastritis, and a strange case of chronic hiccup.

The hiccups lasted from morning till night. It was so bad, she felt constantly out of breath. When it got serious, she felt she was being suffocated.

She was in great pain and distress, but none of the medical treatments proved effective.

Yao started Falun Dafa practice in 1997. Within half a year, all her illnesses disappeared. Her chronic hiccups were gone. She felt light and full of vitality.

She is deeply grateful toward Dafa for having given her a new life.

6. Ms. Lin Aiyan--Alcoholism

Ms. Lin Aiyan started practicing Falun Dafa on April 1997. Since then, she recovered from her many years of stomach problems and hemorrhoids.

Falun Dafa teaches people to improve themselves from inside out.

Lin followed Falun Dafa’s teachings to be a better person in accordance with Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. She quit drinking, a bad habit that had haunted her family for years.

Her family couldn’t help but be astounded. They all exclaimed, “Falun Dafa is truly amazing!”

Before Dafa cultivation, Lin was completely addicted to alcohol. She couldn’t have a meal without drinking.

Alcoholism had made her become a person with deep anxiety. She felt dizzy and fatigued. Her liver showed signs of disease. If she continued drinking like this, her life would be at stake.

Falun Dafa saved her life and cured her of chronic alcoholism. Her diseases were gone. Her liver problems disappeared. She became light and energetic.

Her brother and sister said, “Thank you, Falun Dafa!”

After the persecution was launched against Falun Dafa, Lin was taken to detention and brainwashing centers, but nothing could change her faith in Falun Dafa.
