Falun Dafa Brings New Life to My Brother Paralyzed in a Car Accident
(Minghui.org) My younger brother was entirely paralyzed in a car accident in September 2011. He often lost blood pressure, and his body was shutting down.
In the last three years, he made numerous visits to renowned doctors in China. The family has borne five million yuan in medical expenses, and he traveled to the United States for treatment. Nothing helped. Finally, we decided to give up medical treatment and have him try learning Falun Dafa.
When he studied Dafa, his blood pressure returned to normal. His health continues to improve day by day.
Overcoming Adversity to Become a Well-Known Entrepreneur
Our ancestors were people of virtue and talent. They were capitalists, but all of their property was taken away when the Communist Party took over. Our parents were assigned work in Inner Mongolia after they graduated from school. During the Cultural Revolution, they were persecuted severely and were sent to the countryside, where they lived a difficult life.
As part of the family, I was also persecuted. I was allowed to have only a couple of years of education. After many twists and turns, our family returned to the city. Our father was restored to good standing by the Communist Party. My brother got a formal job. Talented, diligent, intelligent and hardworking, he later became a well-known entrepreneur in our region.
My Brother Supports Falun Dafa
In 2008, a Falun Dafa practitioner introduced the practice to my father and gave him a copy of its main book, Zhuan Falun. When my father was hospitalized, he asked my mother and me to read the book to him. After we finished reading the book once, my father reminded us repeatedly to keep studying it. He passed away after he said these words.
My mother and I then took up the practice of Falun Dafa even though it was persecuted by the Communist Party. We cherished Dafa very much and were determined to keep up with the practice.
Excited to take up the practice, we often told our family members about Dafa. They were deeply impressed by the words, “Falun Dafa is good” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
My brother, two years younger than me, always recited “Falun Dafa is good.” He had a congenial personality and strong skills, and he was kind and handsome. He invested in home construction and building material production. Many of our local buildings were his projects. He was overburdened and often worked far into the night.
He couldn't stand the unhealthy trends he noticed in modern society. Whenever he had the rare chance to visit my mother and me, he would say, “This society can no longer become good. People don’t do their jobs. Wherever I go—in government offices or in companies—I see people playing mahjong or chatting. It's so difficult to get things done.”
He said, “Falun Dafa is so great. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is so great! Why is it being suppressed?”
Paralyzed in a Car Accident
There is a saying: “A storm may arise from a clear sky, and human fortunes are as unpredictable as the weather.” My brother's businesses were booming, his reputation was celebrated, and his assets reached over 20 million yuan.
In September 2011, his car collided with a dump truck. An important part of his cervical spine was damaged, and his central nervous system was destroyed, causing paralysis of his whole body. His head and face were swollen. He was immediately sent to intensive care. His blood pressure readings were flat.
Our local medical experts said my brother had no hope of recovery. One friend invited an expert professor from Beijing’s No. 304 Military Hospital to see my brother, but the expert had no solution either.
After a family discussion, we decided to take him to the Beijing 304 Hospital. We really worried about him, since it was a long journey to Beijing. We were not sure if he could still be alive when he arrived. Finally, he did arrive and was taken to the intensive care unit. But he still had no blood pressure. Days of emergency medical care didn't change anything. This continued for an extended period of time.
He was hospitalized in Beijing for more than three years. During that period, we took him to visit many famous doctors and several big hospitals—the Beijing Armed Police Hospital, Peking University Hospital, Bejing Pok Oi Hospital and Sino-US Hospital. Wherever we went, doctors shook their heads and said they couldn't heal him. Some hospitals refused to take him in. Some hospitals asked him to leave after days of treatment.
His medical bills in Beijing amounted to more than 10,000 yuan per day; the minimum cost each day was 5,000 yuan in the later period.
Saved by Falun Dafa
We took him to the renowned Rehabilitation Hospital in Henan, which had renowned doctors with high academic qualifications. On our way there, my sister-in-law and I kept on reciting, “Falun Dafa is good.” and “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
My brother started getting better. When we arrived at the hospital, his blood pressure went up. He was hospitalized there for more than a month.
The family was unwilling to see him wait for death. He was not expected to live. Though he had no blood pressure and was fully paralyzed, he was still alive. We were all doing our best to find medical solutions for him.
We gave it a last try by traveling to a hospital in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. In the spring of 2014, a surgeon introduced us to a university hospital there. After examining him, one doctor was surprised and said to my brother, “You are a miracle case. You have been living for more than three years fully paralyzed and without blood pressure. Your life has so much powerful vitality. It’s extraordinary.”
However, the doctor could not heal him. He said to my brother, “The strength of your life is unique in the world.” Finally, we decided to give up treatment.
After we came back home, my mother and I stayed with him all the time. We recited “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” every day. My sister-in-law also kept reciting the nine words.
Though my brother couldn't speak, he also recited it in his mind as soon as he woke up each morning. He often showed symptoms of no blood pressure, and his whole body was black and blue. Now he was improving.
My mother and I soon realized that my brother should learn Falun Dafa, the only thing that could save him. Dafa is an extraordinary science. No matter how advanced modern medicine is, it couldn't cure him.
My mother and I took turns to see him and studied the Fa together with him at his home. We played Master's lectures and DVDs about Dafa. After a period of time, my brother’s blood pressure gradually steadied and was soon back to normal. His general health also improved. He was able to speak slowly and quietly, and he communicated with others in short sentences.
He listened to Master's lectures every day and changed greatly. He knew how to cultivate his heart and look inward to find his own shortcomings when facing conflicts. He also knew that the accident was associated with his own karma and other predestined relationships. He came to understand that Master was taking care of him all the time and prolonged his life for him to be able to study Dafa. He knew how precious his life was.
Whenever he felt bad, he would immediately shout, “Master, save me!” He would then feel better. One time, when his oxygen tank connector was off, he could not breathe. He shouted, “Master, save me!” Someone downstairs immediately came to help him.
From my brother's changes, my sister-in-law witnessed the extraordinary power of Falun Dafa, so she said she wanted to take up the practice, too.
Now my brother is able to communicate with me in brief sentences. I encouraged him. “Your second life was given by Master. It means that Master has created a new life for you. Without this accident, you might not have been able to obtain Falun Dafa. Master changed a bad thing into a good thing for you,” I said to him.
“However, this car accident was not arranged by Master, so you should cherish Master's grace and salvation. Your life is not ordinary. Your health and abilities were accumulated from your previous lives. Money cannot solve the fundamental problem. You have seen many famous doctors both at home and abroad, but no one could help you. Only Dafa can help you. Dafa has boundless mighty power. Master will not leave anyone behind who has a predestined relationship with Dafa. Master has saved you. Dafa has saved you!”
My brother was glad to hear what I said and kept nodding. He said, “I will definitely tell people the facts about Falun Dafa and save them when I recover my health.”
Now I go to my brother's house every day to study the Fa with him. I share with him my understandings about Dafa and encourage him. He has made great changes and is feeling better and better.
