(Minghui.org) Being diagnosed with leukemia, especially with acute lymphoblastic leukemia is generally known to be a death warrant. However miracles can happen by changing one's outlook and practicing Falun Dafa.
I clearly remember the cold winter of early November 2009. My health was deteriorating and I was on the verge of despair. I became dizzy, felt nauseated and came down with insomnia. I kept coughing and then ran a high fever.
Experts diagnosed me with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. I was hospitalized immediately. My blood level had dropped significantly and I always felt drowsy and was in pain. It seemed that I had reached the end of my life. I was on daily medication and injections. Moreover, I was on a chemotherapy protocol, which made me lose my hair. I was only 41 at the time.
My husband didn't tell me the seriousness of my illness, but did tell his 70-year-old mother who lived with her daughter in another city. She came immediately and visited me in the hospital. She asked me to recite “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good,” because these nine words would help me step out of danger. Actually a friend of mine had told me the facts about Falun Dafa as well as the persecution. To be frank, I never thought that it had anything to do with me
My mother-in-law had been practicing Falun Dafa for more than ten years. She returned to good health, was energetic, and she was no longer nearsighted. She could do many things, such as feeding her grandson and taking care of her daughter's baby. I often heard her say in the past when she didn't feel well, “I am a practitioner. I will be alright.”
I thought of my mother-in-law's cultivation state in the past, and I decided to give Falun Dafa a try. I thought that I would rather believe that it exists than not and I believed that I might experience a miracle.
I began to recite, “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good.” Within several days the side effects of the chemotherapy lessened, I no longer was nauseated and my appetite got better. My index data returned to normal so I left the hospital and went back home.
My mother-in-law gave me the book Zhuan Falun and a Falun Dafa exercise-teaching DVD.
I studied the book for one hour daily. Whenever I had time, I watched the DVD. I was amazed as to what the book told me after reading it just once. It was such a great book, because it tells people to do good deeds and emphasizes virtue. It's not at all like the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) propaganda being spread on television.
It is incredulous that the CCP not only forbids people to practice Falun Dafa, but also persecutes practitioners. The CCP is so evil! Later I told my father, who works in a court, that I started practicing Falun Dafa. He said, “Good, keeping practicing it.”
Two weeks later, I received a notice from the hospital. I started the second protocol. My index data fluctuated. My mother-in-law told me, “This is a test for you as to whether you believe in Teacher and the Fa or not.”
“I do not talk about healing illness here, and neither will we heal illness. As a genuine practitioner, however, you cannot practice cultivation with an ill body. I will purify your body. The body purification will be done only for those who come to truly learn the practice and the Fa. We emphasize one point: If you cannot relinquish the attachment or concern for illness, we cannot do anything and will be unable to help you.” (Zhuan Falun)
I understood the message from Teacher. “Alas! Master, I am wrong. My enlightenment quality is so poor.” I immediately checked out of the hospital. I started cultivating in Dafa with my whole heart. Less than six months later, my black hair grew back.
I study the Dafa books and practice the exercises every day. I also tell people the facts about Falun Dafa with my mother-in-law.
Four years have passed. My health condition is better than ever before. Teacher gave me a new life. I want to say it again from the bottom of my heart, “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, Falun Dafa is good!”
Thank you, great Master! Thank you for your boundless compassion.
