I Survived End-Stage Cancer After Practicing Falun Dafa
(Minghui.org) I was a terminal end-stage cancer patient, but recovered after I started practicing Falun Dafa.
I was diagnosed with end-stage nasopharyngeal carcinoma on October 21, 2007, at the age of 29. The local hospital was not equipped to treat the condition, so I was taken to the provincial hospital. The doctors initially advised that they could not do anything for me.
Delivering a Healthy Baby Despite Complications from Cancer
I was pregnant with my third child in early 2007. I felt terrible, but assumed it was due to the pregnancy. Some of the illness symptoms might have also been attributable to altitude sickness because I was visiting the Tibetan Plateau.
I returned to China proper to live with my parents on July 24. I then had an excessive nose bleed on August 5. A doctor advised that I could not have an examination unless the pregnancy was terminated. I refused the abortion.
My decision to carry the baby resulted in a lot of pain for both of us. My health worsened. I began to throw up green bile, and my unborn child also suffered when I felt sick. My own tolerance to the pain had reached the limit. It was still a month before the expected date of birth.
The decision was made to induce labor on October 17, 2007. The child was born after more than half an hour, a healthy boy.
My husband immediately took me to the provincial hospital. It was impossible for them to do surgery, but I was put on chemotherapy and radiation therapy. I knew that I was in critical condition.
My illness bankrupted my family. We were also fined for the birth of the baby, which added another burden. Government officials also forced us to divorce.
Saved by the Power of Dafa
When I was running a shop, a mysterious woman told me that I had a predestined relationship with a Buddha, but it was not yet time. She left after she said that, and I never saw her again.
It seemed that my life was nearing its end in 2014 as the symptoms of my cancer returned. Just when I had lost all hope for life, I was given a copy of the book Zhuan Falun.
I read the book and finally found answers to many lifelong questions. I understood why people got sick, and how they accumulated karma. I studied and memorized the Fa, and did the exercises in the morning and evening.
At the beginning of my Falun Dafa cultivation practice, my entire body shook, I experienced some extreme pain, and my bones ached. It felt like countless small bugs were crawling out of the pores of my face. Every hair pore on the top of my head was open. The left side of my body was cold and the right side was hot. When I meditated at night, my tear ducts and nasal passage dripped profusely. In the morning, my throat was blocked by large chunks of pus. But this stopped after a few days.
After two months, a yolk-sized black blood clot came out of my left nostril. There has since been no nose bleeding.
My health continued to improve, and my weight increased by a dozen pounds within a few months.
Following the Dafa Principles
Master Li Hongzhi's teachings taught me to be a good person, and I wanted to change completely. Master Li explained that true practitioners have no illness. After I read that, I was certain that I had recovered from my illness.
I began to become a good person and followed the Dafa principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in whatever I did, including running my business.
I remodeled my shop, and my business began to do well. When customers came back to exchange items they didn’t like, I told them, “I will refund the money if you can’t find something to your satisfaction.” The customers were pleased, and said they would shop at my store in the future.
I told my customers that I practiced Falun Dafa, and that my Master advised me to consider the needs of other people first. Sometimes a child came in with their parents and dirtied the floor. I immediately cleaned it up without complaining, because I remembered that practitioners should always be kind to others. Given the positive changes in my character, I have not only had repeat customers, but many of them bring in new customers to my shop.
By following the Dafa principles, I survived from late-stage cancer and turned my life around!
