My Father Recovered from Late-Stage Cancer
(Minghui.org) I am a public servant in the provincial government in northern China. My wife is a Falun Gong practitioner who has influenced me, and I support her cultivation. I believe Falun Dafa is good. I would like to share a story about my father who was saved by Dafa and recovered from cancer.
My parents are farmers in northern China. My father became sick in July, 2012. His body turned dark so we took him to the hospital where he had an MRI. The doctors at Beijing Medical University and the specialists in our province all diagnosed him with late-stage cancer of the liver and other organs.
They believed he could live three to five more years if he had surgery, and less than six months if he didn't.
We were all shocked. After discussions, we decided he should have the surgery. The doctors needed to remove part of his stomach, the cystic duct, pancreatic duct, and duodenum, and put in a synthetic duct. They cautioned us that the operation was very risky and complicated, and there was a chance that he might not survive.
The surgery lasted from 7:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. It was successful, but the doctor cautioned that proper healing of the wound was critical.
My father's recovery was slow. The worst part was that he had a mild fever for over two weeks that would not go away. The wound became infected and ulcerated. The doctors tried hard but were unable to clear up the infection.
My father could not stand the pain. He would not listen to anyone and was inconsolable―he wanted to die. He even tried to pull the IV tube out to kill himself.
It was at that critical moment that Dafa showed its power. My wife finally got permission for her parents, who were also Dafa practitioners, to go to the ward and visit my father. My father's anger and anxiety gradually subsided in front of the three Dafa practitioners. My in-laws kindly calmed him down, and told him their own experiences of cultivation in Dafa. They told him that Dafa is supernormal, and that Master would save him if he studied the Fa and honestly followed Teacher's guidance in his actions.
My wife took out a copy of Life and Hope Renewed, and began reading it to my father. The book had many stories about people who recovered from late-stage cancer after cultivating in Dafa.
Slowly, my father's pale face showed some signs of color and his dull eyes became clearer. He even eventually began to smile. He said he would practice Dafa when he got home from the hospital. My in-laws left him a copy of Life and Hope Renewed and asked him to read it.
My father's 20-day fever subsided that night. He slept well for the first time since being admitted to the hospital, and his pain diminished a great deal. The doctor came the next morning and was stunned to see this sudden improvement.
My father was discharged a few days later and indeed began learning Dafa. He listened to one of Master's lectures every day. He also finished reading the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and read some pamphlets containing facts about Falun Dafa.
Seven years have passed and my father is now 74 years old, and very healthy. Through studying Dafa, he learned that to cultivate is to be a good person first. He behaves accordingly, and treats everyone nicely.
My mother, brother, and nephew all had experiences of their tribulations being resolved because they believed, “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” We all support Dafa from the bottoms of our hearts.
