My Husband's Amazing Recovery after a Stage IV Cancer Diagnosis
(Minghui.org) Two years ago in August 2017, my husband complained about a severe stomachache and went for a checkup at a hospital. He was diagnosed with stage IV liver cancer – a diagnosis that we definitely did not want to hear.
My entire family was in shock. My husband was just in his 30s, with a young daughter to raise and aging parents to support.
Dafa Has the Power
Facing this tribulation, I only thought of Falun Dafa, a Buddhist School cultivation practice, which I'd started practicing in 2013. I had experienced the power of Dafa and knew that it could mean the difference between death and survival. Two fellow practitioners also encouraged me to rely on the power of Dafa.
I told my husband, “You have been coughing non-stop since yesterday. I have benefited from Dafa and suggest that you sincerely recite 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!' Let's try it tonight to see if it will show you its power.”
I kept reciting the two Dafa sentences, and my husband did not cough that night.
My husband was a manager for a government institute. He had been indoctrinated by the Communist Party's propaganda and did not believe in the power of Dafa. But, that night's experience awed him. I told him that Dafa could mean the difference between life and death. He calmly accepted my suggestion and started listening to the Dafa lectures.
While in the hospital, I read the Dafa books and he listened to the Dafa recordings. His cough diminished significantly. He used to cough the entire night and was unable to sleep. Now he slept soundly through the night, and just coughed a few times in the evening.
Choosing Dafa or Established Treatments
However, his parents wanted him to get treatment from a better hospital, so he kept searching for hospitals and doctors. He could not focus on the Dafa teachings, and he once again began to cough continuously.
He was at a loss and asked me what I suggested. I said, “You trust the hospitals more than Master Li, the founder of Dafa. How can you expect Master to take care of you? If you want no pain, your only choice is to ask Master to help, and truly cultivate.”
My husband then started reading Zhuan Falun, the main book of Dafa. After only three minutes, he said “I want to sleep” and then fell asleep. He slept through the night. The next day he listened to the Zhuan Falun lectures.
We went to a larger hospital in another city for a checkup a few days later. The result was the same. Doctors told us that the only options were either to take the established treatment or a medicine imported from Germany. The imported medicine cost 50,000 yuan (US $6,300) a month. We chose the established treatment as we didn't have the financial means for the German medicine. My husband also continued to study the Dafa lectures.
The next checkup showed results that were better than the doctor's expectations. The tumors had gotten smaller and several blood tests were normal, especially the alpha-fetoprotein indicator that measures the cancer cells.
His doctor suggested radiotherapy. My husband was excited about it and kept asking for more information. Then he was depressed: one treatment session would cost 150,000 yuan (US $20,000) and his institute would not reimburse the expense. Besides, the treatment would not guarantee success.
My husband and his father were really worried by this time. I told him that I had asked Master for help, and everything would be fine. But, as my father-in-law didn't understand Falun Dafa, he yelled at me and left in anger.
I studied the Dafa lectures with my husband, and encouraged him to believe in Master.
Then, the CT result showed a great improvement from the CT scan taken three days prior. Among the three tumors, one had disappeared and two had gotten smaller. There was no need for radiotherapy. My husband and father-in-law were amazed and both now believe in Dafa's amazing power.
The last checkup at the end of the year showed that all blood test results were normal, and all of the small tumors in the liver had disappeared. The only big tumor had begun to calcify, meaning it was no longer harmful.
The doctors could hardly believe what they saw in my husband's case.
When my husband and I left the hospital, his primary doctor smiled at us, “When you left our hospital the last time, I was wondering if I would see you again. Amazingly, you are getting better and better!”
It took my husband six months from being diagnosed to full recovery. He is now a Falun Dafa practitioner. My parents-in-law and daughter have also started to read the Falun Dafa books.
