(Minghui.org) My mother-in-law had been paralyzed and wheelchair-bound for many years, mainly due to a debilitating arthritic condition. In 2016, she was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and could not eat or drink anything.

A doctor at my local hospital thought that she was too weak to undergo surgery, so he suggested that we take care of her at home. My family members and I insisted that a feeding tube be inserted into her stomach so that we could feed her with a syringe.

Since my mother-in-law's health had been getting progressively worse over the years, my wife and family members began preparing for her funeral.

My mother-in-law's children often became impatient with her and even scolded her. Seeing the helpless look on the old woman's face, I offered to take care of her at my home.

Every morning, I folded her quilt, cleaned her feet, put on her socks, got warm water so she could wash her face and brush her teeth, and prepared her breakfast. I also carried her to the toilet and then back to a wheelchair. Sometimes I would carry her outside, place her in the wheelchair, and then we'd go to the park.

Due to rheumatism and a severe bone condition, the joints in her hand became so deformed that her fingernails literally curled into her skin. Thus, it was very difficult and time consuming to cut her nails, which is why no one wanted to do it. I volunteered to take care of it for her.

My mother-in-law never supported my involvement with Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong), as she harbored many misunderstandings about the practice. However, after being home from the hospital for only one month, and after seeing how practitioners were kind, selfless, and tolerant, she realized that Falun Dafa is good.

When I clarified the truth to her, she understood that she'd been hoodwinked by the Chinese Communist Party's anti-Falun Dafa propaganda.

She later told her family members and friends, “As long as my son-in-law is at home, I'm fine!”

One day, I told my mother-in-law to mentally recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” as it would improve her health. She believed me and said, “I truly admire Falun Dafa practitioners! I also want to conduct myself according to the Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.”

Two weeks later, as my wife was preparing steamed buns, I told my mother-in-law, “Tonight, we're not going to feed you with a syringe. Instead, I want you to try eating a few mouthfuls of bun and tell me if you feel any pain in your throat.”

She agreed, but looked very doubtful. She then ate a few pieces of bun, but didn't feel any pain. The whole family was surprised and delighted. From that day on, she ate whatever we cooked at home.

However, being fearful that her condition might relapse in the future, she decided to leave her feeding tube in place. Two months later, we went to the hospital with her to ask the doctor to remove it for her.

My mother-in-law spoke to the doctor at length. The doctor found it inconceivable that only a few months ago she was on the verge of death. My brother-in-law whispered in the doctor's ear, “Is it possible that she had been misdiagnosed?”

“Impossible!” retorted the doctor, “Our equipment does not misdiagnosis anyone!”

Thus, my mother-in-law recovered from esophageal cancer without taking any medicine or dangerous chemotherapy. My wife said, “There are a lot of people with similar diseases who would have passed away a long time ago.”

A few weeks later, my mother-in-law moved back to her own home and now lives with her son. She no longer needs a wheelchair and is able to use the restroom by herself.

Her family and friends all witnessed the power of Falun Dafa!
