Ms. Yang Huirong, 59, lived in No. 33-3 Gongan Street, Fangzi District, Weifang City, Shandong Province. In 1995, she had an operation that removed a tumor from her breast, after which her body was very weak. In 1997, she started to practice Falun Gong. As a result, she slowly recovered. In late 2000, she went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong. After she returned, she kept clarifying the truth to people. In the winter of 2002, her husband was arrested for making truth-clarifying materials. The police ransacked their home, extorted a huge amount of money from them, sentenced her husband to 3 years of forced labor, and harassed Ms. Yang many times at her home. The torture and harassment seriously damaged Ms. Yang's mind and body. She suffered from various symptoms and was sent to the emergency room of a hospital. There, she was diagnosed with uremia and her old diseases relapsed. She passed away on January 2, 2005.
