(Minghui.org) My younger sister contracted tuberculous in 1996 when she was 18. When she was near death, she started practicing Falun Gong.

Death Looms

My sister was taken to the county hospital and misdiagnosed with pneumonia. Even though she had injections every day, she still got an infection in her right lung. After an operation, she had to stay in the hospital for three months and couldn't look after herself. Her bandages needed changing every day, so our parents had to take care of her.

When her illness relapsed, the doctor said we'd need 50,000 yuan for a second operation, but they couldn't guarantee its success. We were also told that there was a slight chance that my sister could end up in a vegetative state after the operation.

That much money was beyond reach for my family. The doctor stopped treating my sister the day of the diagnosis. They told us to take her home, and she could just wait to die.

My dad's hair turned gray overnight with worry. My mom thought of committing suicide. My sister was in critical condition and looked like she would die soon.

My dad took my sister to my home and went back to his own home to arrange for new clothes to bury her in.

My Sister Recovers

A friend told me that there were people doing exercises every day in a nearby park, and that it could cure illnesses. I went to see what it was all about.

I saw people doing a standing stance exercise. They lifted their hands to eye level and held them there for a long time. I thought that was not easy for a healthy person to do, let alone my sister.

A person looking after the exercise site came over and told me that they were going to show a lecture video by Mr. Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong, on Sunday, and that it was free.

The following day, I took my sister on my bicycle to see the video.

After watching just one lecture, my sister could walk home on her own and didn't feel tired. She rode a bicycle to see the rest of the lectures that afternoon.

My sister fully recovered after watching the nine lectures. She could eat and work. She didn't spend a penny and had her life restored. How amazing!

I didn't know what "Buddha Law" meant during that time, but our family witnessed a miracle happen to my sister. All of us began to practice Falun Gong. My mom's atrophy of the brain also disappeared soon after she started practicing.
