Mr. Sun Baoxin, 70 years old, of Hengshui City, Hebei Province, started practicing Falun Gong in 1997. Because he maintained a pure heart and advanced diligently in his practice, many of his illnesses including hypertension and cerebral hemorrhaging were cured without medical treatment. After July 20, 1999, Mr. Sun was threatened and harassed as a result of the Jiang regime's intensive persecution. His body and mind were severely harmed. He died on March 19, 2003 as a result of the persecution.
