A Breast Cancer Patient Immensely Grateful to Master for Saving Her Life
(Minghui.org) I am a 47-year-old woman originally from Pingdu, Shandong Province, and now work in Dalian, Liaoning Province. When I was diagnosed with a particular type of breast cancer years ago, I felt as if the sky had fallen and I was done for. I tried all kinds of things, but nothing seemed to help.
Just when I was in the depths of despair in the fall of 2010, a colleague of mine told me about Falun Dafa. My life hasn't been the same since. Not only did my breast tumor disappear, but I also became so much healthier and full of energy and had a new outlook on life. I am immensely grateful to Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Dafa, for saving my life. I would like to share my story with everyone so that people know how extraordinary the practice really is.
Diagnosed with Breast Cancer at a Young Age
My breasts had always felt tender, swollen, and painful, but I never had an exam because I did not want to spend the money. As time went by, the symptoms worsened. I couldn't eat or sleep well and eventually had to take a leave of absence from work.
I knew I could no longer put off seeking medical help, so I went to the Railway Hospital. To say I was shell shocked was an understatement. I couldn't believe I was diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS, also known as intraductal carcinoma). My child was still young and I had still so much to live for. I cried and cried until I had no more tears.
I decided to have my tumor removed. Strangely, I had trouble making appointments. Every time I went to the hospital to schedule my surgery, the weather turned nasty, with either strong wind or a downpour. As a result, I was so late getting to the hospital that I couldn't get any appointment. After a few tries, I finally made an appointment. However, the hospital called several days later, informing me that somehow my name wasn't on the list and asking me to reschedule. I was very upset, not knowing if this was a good or bad omen. After some consideration, I made up my mind to not have the surgery.
I began to try massage, and my breasts did feel a bit better during those few months. But the effect was short-lived, and my breasts soon started to hurt again. I was disappointed that the 40-yuan-per-session massages didn't do much to improve my condition.
A Colleague Introduces Me to Falun Dafa
While chatting with a female colleague in the autumn of 2010, she asked why I always looked so pale and sick every day. When I told her about my diagnosis, she asked carefully if I'd like to recite, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” I wasn't very receptive at that point and cautioned her to stop talking about this banned topic. She disagreed and said firmly that Falun Dafa was not illegal and was a righteous cultivation way.
She gave me a copy of Zhuan Falun to read, and I thought to myself that I should at least take a look at it since she was so kind.
It just so happened I had several days off, so I finished reading the whole book quickly. As I read, I kept thinking what a great book it was and I was very excited.
When I told my colleague I'd never read anything that good before, she offered to let me keep the book and to teach me the five exercises. So, during lunchtime we tried doing the exercises in a storage room. As it turned out, my colleague hadn't practiced the exercises herself for quite a long time due to fear of arrest, so her movements weren't very accurate.
My Colleague and I Begin Serious Cultivation
Several days later, a Dafa practitioner visited our store to tell everyone the facts about Falun Dafa. My colleague and I couldn't have been happier and eagerly asked her to find us an exercise site. She was very nice and offered to bring us truth-clarification materials for us to distribute on a regular basis.
A month later she had found us an exercise site and asked us to go there every morning at 4 o'clock.
The first morning there we saw an elegant lady doing the meditation. We were all stunned when she told us she was close to 80. Where was her gray hair? She said she used to have a full head of white hair before she began to practice Falun Dafa. We were greatly inspired and became even more determined to practice Dafa well.
In addition to the daily morning exercises, we also joined a weekly Fa-study group. Before I knew it, my breast tumor had disappeared and I had regained my appetite. I also had no more trouble falling asleep, and I felt so full of energy and in good spirits. I was so happy and full of gratitude to Master.
Dafa Amazes My Coworkers
I had an accident recently. While getting hot water from the water dispenser at work, the machine malfunctioned and splattered hot water all over my legs, which became extremely swollen and broke out in blisters. My boss urged me to go to the hospital, but I said I'd be fine by reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.”
I didn't take any break, but my legs totally recovered in just five days, without leaving any scars or marks.
My boss and coworkers were totally amazed by this. Several of them quit the Young Pioneers they had once joined.
During the past three years of my Dafa practice, I've persuaded nearly 50 people to quit the Party and its affiliated organizations.
I'll keep cultivating diligently to be worthy of Master's grace in giving me a second life.
