Ms. Liu Shulan, 76, lived in Niguantun Village, Luofa Township, Anci District, Langfang City, Hebei Province. Many of her illnesses disappeared without medical treatment after she started practicing Falun Gong. After the persecution started on July 20, 1999, as her children were arrested, beaten and sent to forced labor camps for practicing Falun Gong, she suffered great mental trauma. The long-term persecution led to the recurrence of her illness and she died on May 22, 2005.
