Breast Cancer Patient Granted a Second Life
(Minghui.org) I had undergone six surgeries, three of them on my heart, surgeries before I started practicing Falun Gong. I then was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2010, which called for more surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.
Although life was hard and lonely, I did not despair. Instead, I searched for anything that could improve my life and bring back the joy I once experienced.
Same Illness, Different Results
After the breast surgery, I had to wear a colostomy bag to collect intestinal waste, but I still hummed as I walked around in the hospital.
I ran into three sisters, the youngest of which was scheduled for the same operation that I had recently. She looked afraid and worried. Her elder sister comforted her and said, “Do not be afraid, Sister. Look at her, she is humming a song after t\her operation.” We became friends and got together after we returned home.
I started to practice Falun Dafa one year after my surgery, while my friend did not.
While on vacation with my parents, I was told that my friend had relapsed and she was deteriorating fast. By the time I returned home, she had passed away.
I knew that if I did not practice Falun Dafa, I might have passed away, too. We suffered the same illness but followed different paths. I walked on the path of cultivation in Falun Dafa, while she relied on medical intervention.
I slacked off in my cultivation when I celebrated the 2014 Chinese New Year with my family. I did not study the Dafa books or do the exercises.
My right breast really hurt, and I found a hard lump. The pain made me think of the breast cancer from a few years before. This made me realize that, for someone who does not cultivate, the outcome is often death.
The lump was bigger than the one I'd had before. I wondered if I should go to a hospital.
I then changed my mind and viewed this incident from the Fa's perspective. I thought, “Everything happens for a reason. I am a practitioner. Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Dafa, is taking care of me. This must be a test. I must have firm belief in Master and the Fa.”
I stopped slacking off: I studied the Fa, did the exercises, and followed the Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I let go of the feelings that ran through my mind, including the pain, despair, and fear.
To help me be more diligent, I began to transcribe Dafa's main book Zhuan Falun. The lump soon disappeared. Dafa once again displayed its extraordinary power, and instead of death, I was able to celebrate life.
Family Members Benefit
After I walked on the path of cultivation, my husband, parents, younger sister, friends, and former classmates have witnessed the goodness of Falun Dafa. They quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations.
My mother-in-law began to practice Falun Dafa. My husband, who often lost his temper, became good-natured and reminds me when it is time to go to group Fa study. My entire family has benefited from Falun Dafa.
