Ms. Sun Xiuzhi was a Falun Gong practitioner from Aohan County of Inner Mongolia Province. In 1998, when she was seventy-seven years old, she had colon cancer. After coming back from a hospital, she started practicing Falun Gong with her daughter-in-law, Ms. Ji Guomin. Amazingly her cancer, together with her chronic body pain, went away in less than a week. Shortly after that, the persecution started. Ms. Ji was forced to leave home to avoid the persecution. On July 5, 2004, the police arrested Ms. Ji and illegally sentenced her to nine years in the Women's prison of Huhehaote City. Ms. Sun was so worried about her daughter-in-law's condition, that she became ill. On August 31, 2004, she died at three o'clock in the morning after hearing that her daughter, Ms. Ji Guomin, was sent to the Women's Prison of Huhehaote City.
