(Minghui.org) I am 64 years old. I was diagnosed with brain cancer in 1990 and I had surgery to remove a portion of my cerebellum. I was given three months to live. Nevertheless, I survived and in 1996 began to practice Falun Dafa.
A neighbor invited me to learn Falun Dafa. She said it has amazing benefits, and she invited me to learn the exercises with a local group.
My neighbor also said that doing the exercises is not enough, that practitioners also need to read the book Zhuan Falun. She loaned me a copy and said it explains why people get sick. I stopped taking medication and became much healthier.
I was later diagnosed with uterine cancer and had a tumor surgically removed in 1999. The doctor was surprised to see that numerous cancerous cysts had already calcified. I told the doctor that I practice Falun Dafa, and that I believed I would not have survived otherwise.
After I was released from the hospital, I told myself, “Master saved my life again. Now that Dafa is being persecuted, I should tell my story to help people understand how good the practice is.
I began to go out each day to tell others about Falun Dafa. At first I had not fully recovered and had trouble standing up straight. I was blind in the left eye and vision in my right eye was blurry.
I told people: “I was diagnosed with two different cancers in the past. I had brain surgery. I am still alive and able to talk to you. Please remember that Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
The left side of my body became suddenly paralyzed in 2010. I could not walk or lift my left hand. I still persisted in studying the Fa and doing the exercises. As soon as I could walk, I went out to talk to people about Dafa again.
I heard that a fellow practitioner had sickness karma. I went to her home to study the Fa with her. We also shared with each other and strengthened our righteous thoughts. She felt bad for me because it was a long walk for me to get there. However, after seeing how happy she was when I arrived, I continued to visit her regularly.
She was very surprised to see me after a snow storm. “It is so slippery out, you should not have come,” she said. “You are muddy, did you fall?”
“I'm fine! Master saved me,” I replied. “As practitioners, we are one body, so we should help each other. We should believe in Master and believe in the Fa. Let's study the Fa more and go out to save people.”
I fell three times when I was out spreading the truth one rainy day in October 2011. I was covered in mud, and my back and legs were bruised. I continued to do the exercises and study the Fa, even though putting my legs in the double lotus position hurt. One month later I had fully recovered from the falls.
I still go out every day to clarify the truth and distribute Dafa materials. Sometimes I met people who do not accept the truth and cursed me. I told myself, “Master asked me to save people. I am a Dafa disciple, so I should follow Master's requirements.”
“The world’s miseries endured,One departs the earth a Buddha.”(“Tempering the Will” from Hong Yin)
My attachment to competitiveness arose on a few occasions and I argued with others. I admitted my mistakes after I came home: “Master, I was wrong. I should not fight like an ordinary person. I should control myself.”
I get up every morning at 2:20 a.m. to do the exercises and then study the Fa for two hours. I always study the Fa with my legs in the double lotus position. I think we should be more respectful towards Master and the Fa as Dafa disciples.
I go out in the afternoon to talk to people about Dafa and the persecution. I can now walk steadily by myself and with my back straight. My vision has returned.
I remain diligent in spreading the truth. It is our mission to save people as Dafa disciples. I will follow Master's requirements and follow Master on the path of Fa rectification.
