Elderly Woman Recovers from Late Stage Lung Cancer
(Minghui.org) My 83-year-old mother-in-law had been ill for over a year, with symptoms of chest tightness, shortness of breath, dizziness and general weakness. Her worsening symptoms prompted the family to send her to the county hospital in May 2019.
Doctors at the county hospital were unable to pin down a diagnosis. As x-rays clearly showed a growth in my mother-in-law’s lungs, the doctor recommended an injection to relieve symptoms. At that time, the healing powers of Falun Dafa crossed my mind. Everyone in the family knew about the goodness of Dafa and had willingly quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. However, none of them had personally witnessed the extraordinary magic of Dafa. Also, the tense and anxious atmosphere was not conducive to an alternate suggestion.
For over two months, my mother-in-law dutifully took the prescribed medications and injections. However, her symptoms continued to worsen. My increasingly worried younger and older sisters-in-law quickly paid a visit to the provincial hospital, bearing with them x-rays of my mother-in-law’s lungs which had been taken at the county hospital. Doctors at the provincial hospital told them my mother-in-law had late stage lung cancer. My sisters-in-law immediately proposed to bring my mother-in-law to the provincial hospital for treatment. However, doctors there counseled them against this move. An operation was out of the question for this elderly woman. Moreover, they said that treatment was futile, as her cancer was already in the late stages. It would be kinder to keep my mother-in-law as comfortable as possible at home while she lived out the rest of her life.
I visited my mother-in-law immediately after hearing this news. After just two months, she had lost much weight. Her breathlessness persisted to the point where it was affecting her ability to sleep. I counseled her, “Mother, sincerely recite the phrases 'Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.' It may help your condition and there is no harm in giving it a try.”
My elder sister-in-law also agreed, “Mom, let's recite the phrases together.” My mother-in-law and sister-in-law began to recite the phrase loudly, while I headed into the kitchen to prepare dinner for the family.
Within minutes, an amazing thing occurred. My mother-in-law gradually fell asleep, breathing both evenly and comfortably. Surprised, the family decided to let her continue sleeping while we had dinner. A while later, my mother-in-law woke up, walked into the kitchen complaining of hunger and proceeded to consume an entire bun.
This sudden, momentous improvement in her appetite left my family speechless. I knew this was the power of Dafa at work and silently thanked Master.
The following day, I brought a copy of Zhuan Falun with me to my mother-in-law’s home. Family members took turns reading the book to her every day. In between, my mother-in-law also diligently recited the phrases “Falun Dafa is good. Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” Soon, my mother-in-law happily danced her favorite folk dance (Yangko) each evening.
Thereafter, all symptoms of her lung cancer vanished. My mother-in-law’s appetite returned to normal and she resumed her usual schedule, which included leisurely walks and the occasional card game with neighbors. Those who knew of her illness were dumbfounded.
This miraculous manifestation of Dafa’s extraordinary powers convinced my husband to start cultivating Falun Dafa. He began practicing the exercises and reading Zhuan Falun to my mother-in-law every day. Even my youngest aunt expressed interest in learning the five sets of exercises.
Skeptical friends and neighbors initially found the story hard to believe. However, after witnessing my mother-in-law’s rapid recovery, everyone began to praise the amazing powers of Dafa.
