Octogenarian Recovered from Bladder Cancer by Reciting “Falun Dafa is Good”
(Minghui.org) I am a Falun Dafa practitioner from China. I would like to share the following experience of an elderly woman who recovered from cancer after learning about Falun Dafa.
My niece lives in the city, while her 86 year-old mother-in-law lives in a farming village. Her mother-in-law was taken ill at age 81. At first she felt tired and weak, and generally unwell. She later passed blood in her urine, and in a matter of days, she had lost a lot of weight and appeared pale and listless. Her family took her to the town hospital for a check-up and they suspected that it was bladder cancer. The doctor said, “We can’t treat her here, take her to a bigger hospital.”
They took her to the county hospital where a diagnosis of bladder cancer was confirmed. The family of the elderly woman still had doubts, so they took her into the city and stayed at my niece’s home. They went to the best hospital in the city, but the diagnosis was the same.
The doctor advised that the best treatment would be to have surgery and undergo chemotherapy. However, before starting chemotherapy he needed to first check organ function, including her liver and kidneys, to see if the cancer had spread. If the cancer had spread, it would not be worthwhile. The doctor also said that due to the patient's age and health condition, the surgery was very risky, and the ultimate decision on treatment had to be signed off by the family.
Her family members were very worried, and gathered to discuss her course of treatment. One said that she must have the operation and that they could pool some funds together to pay for it. This relative felt that even if it was a gamble they might regret not choosing this treatment approach. Another family member said it was not a matter of money at all, it was whether they should gamble with her life. No one seemed to be able to make a decision.
When I heard the news, I went to my niece's house and brought with me an audio player loaded with the series on Dafa, including, “Now and For the Future--The History of Falun Dafa,” “Life and Hope Renewed,” “Cultivation Stories,” etc.
After a few friendly greetings, I launched straight into the purpose of my visit. I said to the family, “I don't know anything about medical treatments, I will keep out of your discussion. But let's take a two-pronged approach. You keep up with your search for the best solution, and I will give this lady a special gift. If it has meaning for her, miracles can happen.”
I presented the audio player to the elderly lady and briefly explained what was on the player and showed her how to use it. She happily accepted this gift. I also shared how I had benefited from practicing Falun Dafa as well as some true stories of the miraculous healing power of Dafa. She listened intently and was quite receptive. I told the lady, “Start reciting ‘Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good’ and you might see drastic changes in your situation.” She took my advice seriously and made real efforts to memorize the phrases and learn how to use the audio player. She kept reciting the phrases and listened to the stories every day, and within a few days she was no longer passing blood in her urine, and she felt a lot better. Her appetite returned, she was sleeping well, and the color returned to her face. She told her family, “I am no longer sick! I am not going to the hospital!”
In the end she never went to the hospital, and has since remained healthy. She is now 86 years old and still lives in her own home in the village. This elderly woman is fully capable of taking care of herself and can even help out with chores inside and outside the house. She keeps telling others, “It was ‘Falun Dafa is good’ and this little audio player that saved my life.”
