(Clearwisdom.net) I am 66 years old, and am a resident of Qingfeng County, Puyang City, Henan Province. I retired in 1994, and in 1995 I suddenly began to suffer from an inexplicable disease. I visited many hospitals in an attempt to cure my disease. The doctors diagnosed my illness as a serious muscular atrophy but could do nothing to help me. Then my family had to take me to Beijing to see more doctors. During the hospitalization my condition suddenly deteriorated. After 20 days of emergency treatment, for which my family paid more than 80,000 yuan (1), I survived. However, even under such circumstances, the doctors still could not cure my disease and could only maintain my life with costly medicines. I was very depressed by my suffering and by the fear of death that could befall me at any time.

Fortunately, I started to practice Falun Dafa in 1996, and my fatal disease disappeared almost miraculously. I also experienced a dramatic improvement in my mental state. My family and I were deeply grateful to Teacher because Falun Dafa had given me a new life.

On July 20, 1999, the political regime of Jiang Zemin launched the brutal persecution against Falun Gong. In October 1999 I went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. However, I was sent back by the Beijing police and was detained in the local detention center in my hometown, where I was illegally held for more than half a month. The local policemen didn't release me until they extorted 2,000 yuan from my family.

In October 2000, police came to my home and took me into custody once again. They illegally detained me for more than 20 days and extorted 5,000 yuan from my family. They also canceled my membership in the Chinese Communist Party.

In February 2001, on the second day after the Chinese New Year, the local policemen deceived me and abducted me. They took me to the local detention center where I was detained for more than a month. During that time, the policemen sent me to brainwashing classes in Puyang City and took away my I.D. card without returning it to me for three years. While I was in detention, the policemen broke into my home numerous times and frightened my family members with brutal threats. Due to all of this stress my husband suffered a serious illness. Nonetheless, the policemen continued to break into my home to harass him, even though he was bedridden. He passed away not long after.

My sons and daughters were also persecuted because of my persistence in practicing Falun Dafa. The policemen forced them to pressure me to give up Falun Dafa by threatening that they would not be allowed to join the Party. They were told that they would therefore have trouble with their future promotions and suffer economic losses if they refused to cooperate with the police.
