Mr. Hu Xiangdong lived in Makou Township, Yongxiu County, Jiangxi Province. He previously had leukemia, which disappeared after he began Falun Dafa practice. He was then able to do farm labor in the fields. After the persecution of Falun Gong began on July 20, 1999, lawless officials sent people to follow Mr. Hu, and they forbade him to practice Falun Dafa. His old illness returned, and he died on December 13, 2003.
