(Minghui.org) Recently, at the age of 63, I began to practice Falun Gong, which turned out to be a life changing experience.
I was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in 2013 and had surgery. I relapsed three years later. After six rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, there was not much improvement. I was hoarse, could barely talk, and the constant diarrhea weakened me even more. The oncologist hinted that I was at an advanced stage of cancer and suggested that I be discharged.
At home, I suffered a great deal and became so depressed that I thought about ending my life. My wife could not bear my suffering, so she suggested I practice Falun Gong like her sister, who was healthy and happy. But I was deeply deceived by the Chinese communist regime's propaganda and refused.
One day, my wife and her sister brought a DVD player to our home and asked me to watch a lecture by the founder of Falun Gong. Even though I was skeptical, I agreed to do it. After listening to the lecture, I realized that I had been fooled by the Chinese Party propaganda for years. It was nothing like what it said on television.
That night, I developed a high fever, perspired, and developed a rash on my chest, which itched. The next morning, I felt better. I could talk and my throat was not hurting as much. But the diarrhea worsened. My sister-in-law told me not to worry, it was a good thing because my body was going though purification!
I was amazed at the power of Falun Gong and determined to step into this cultivation practice.
My change was obvious. My hoarseness was gone, my appetite improved, and the diarrhea disappeared. I also became energetic and had a healthy glow on my face.
I thought as to how many people were poisoned by the Party's propaganda. I almost missed the chance myself!
I am deeply grateful to Falun Gong and determined to cultivate diligently. My life was renewed by Falun Gong. I want to tell everyone that they should not be deceived by the Party's lies, and learn the facts first hand.
