(Minghui.org) I am now 65 years old. I retired early to take care of my husband, who has health problems.

Stricken with Multiple Cancers

Back in 2006, I felt weak but didn’t know why. I went for a check up in a prestigious hospital and was diagnosed with leukemia. I was not convinced, but after the bone marrow biopsy, it was confirmed that I did, indeed, have cancer of the blood.

Later that year, I had pain in my bones and was diagnosed with bone cancer. I was besieged by two kinds of cancer! A year later, I noticed I had a hard time when I went to the toilet, and the doctors discovered I had rectal cancer. I was put on the waiting list for major surgery and therapy to deal with abdominal pain caused by colitis.

Although I was struggling with all those ailments, I still kept a positive outlook on life—at least on the surface. I had an ill husband to take care of and three kids who were not quite yet adults.

Protecting a Couple That Practiced Falun Gong

Our neighbors are an elderly couple that practice Falun Gong. In 2009, a police officer came to ask about them. I knew he wanted to arrest anyone who practiced Falun Gong. He asked me if the couple organized people to practice Falun Gong.

I told him that I did not believe they did. He asked me to sign an affidavit to that effect and I did. The police never returned.

When the couple learned what I had done, they told me that I would be blessed for protecting Falun Gong practitioners.

The Wonder of Falun Gong

Shortly after that, I went to visit my daughter and found two DVDs on her windowsill. I saw they were about Shen Yun. She gave them to me to play at home. I really enjoyed the dancing and the singing, and the stories the dances told. I watched them over and over, and I felt myself enveloped by a warm blanket as I did. I felt very comfortable.

I met another Falun Gong practitioner who told me that Falun Gong was a Buddhist school cultivation practice. She also brought my attention to the persecution and the staged Tiananmen self-immolation. She emphasized the importance of quitting the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations. She also taught me to sincerely say two phrases that would make me healthy and strong: “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance are good.” She even gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Gong.

I was illiterate. How would I read it? I opened Zhuan Falun and looked at the characters. Then I realized that I knew what they meant! How could that be possible? I was amazed! Gradually, I felt healthier and stronger, and the discomfort that I was used to went away.

I had a thorough evaluation at a major hospital, including blood-work, ultra-sound, and X-rays. The physicians were all astonished: there was no evidence of any of the three cancers that I’d been diagnosed with! The surgery was canceled and I was declared healthy!

I am so grateful to Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong! I was profoundly blessed! I want others to know that, if they protect Falun Gong practitioners, they will be blessed. I am living proof of that!
