(Minghui.org) I'm a 50-year-old woman who lives in the Chinese countryside. I would like to share my experience of how practicing Falun Gong saved my life.

I was diagnosed with cervical cancer and had surgery five years ago.

The cancer relapsed in 2015 and spread to my lymph nodes. I went through chemotherapy and my face swelled and all my hair fell out. I was on the brink of death.

In September 2015 when I went to visit one of my aunts, I noticed that her legs were swollen and her knees were deformed. Her children urged her to seek medical treatment. The doctor suggested surgery, but because of the negative side effects, they chose to not do it.

After she returned home, my aunt began practicing Falun Gong and her legs soon returned to normal. When I saw her amazing recovery, I wanted to learn Falun Gong, too. However, after three days I had only read 10 pages of the book Zhuan Falun. Because I started having discomfort here and there, I stopped reading it.

In December 2015, I met my third aunt, a Falun Gong practitioner, at a relative's home. I immediately noticed that she was very kind, had rosy cheeks, and looked much younger than her age.

She told me about a 73-year old woman who had a relapse of her breast cancer 19 years ago. This time, it spread throughout her body. She was near death and could hardly breathe. Her body reeked of medicine, mucus, and blood. Her family began making preparations for her funeral. When my aunt told the lady how wonderful Falun Gong is, she wanted to learn it.

My aunt visited the lady the next day and showed her the Falun Gong exercises. The lady quickly recovered from her cancer, and she's been healthy ever since. Despite her age, she walks very quickly and always gives her seat on the bus to someone else.

Her story really touched me. Just listening to it gave me energy. I told my aunt, “I'm determined to practice this time!” And I did.

Two weeks later, I had a dream in which I saw a colorful rotating object. I called my aunt to ask if the object I saw was a Falun. She said that she believed it was.

In January 2016, when I was barely awake, I saw two people in white robes silently open my abdomen and take out a few dark lumps and some smaller pieces. Afterward, my health greatly improved. 

I used to be too weak to carry anything heavy. Now I can easily carry two buckets of coal. Even though I hadn't had chemotherapy for months, I felt fine. I didn't even get a cold. I kept doing the Falun Gong exercises and studied the Fa. I was able to take care of myself without any help from my family.

My brother and sister were very worried when they heard that I had stopped the chemotherapy and pressured me to get a physical exam. To assuage their worries, I did so, and it showed that I was completely healthy and cancer free!

My doctor was shocked. My cousin's husband told her, “Even cancer can be cured by practicing Falun Gong! You should practice, too, so that you won't have pain here and there.” One neighbor who practices another faith came to borrow Falun Gong books from me and wanted to practice, too.

I feel so fortunate that my life has been saved by Falun Gong! I hope more people can benefit from it!
