(Minghui.org) I will be 81 years old this year. Before 1999, I had the affinity to begin my path of cultivation in Falun Dafa, and I started my quest to return to my true self. After cultivating Dafa, I recovered from all sorts of illnesses, and aches that had tormented me for more than ten years. My whole family is truly grateful to Master. I also personally witnessed the amazing power of cultivating in Dafa. I personally validated the true saying that “...with one person practicing, the whole family benefits...” (Teachings at the Conference in Australia)
My Husband was Cured of Terminal Colon Cancer
My husband, who is 88 years old, is now healthy and can do all sorts of household chores. Psychologically and physically, no one can see that he suffered from terminal-stage colon cancer, was diagnosed as incurable by the hospital, and was left waiting to die. In the end, he was fortunate to survive the ordeal.
It occurred ten years ago, when husband was 78 years old. He was hospitalized after being diagnosed with terminal-stage colon cancer. After surgery, he could not eat much and depended on infusions to maintain his life. After about ten days, he became very thin, and his condition worsened by the day. The doctor said that since my husband was already quite old and no one with this illness has been successfully cured, his only option was chemotherapy, but that would only temporarily control the cancer. When our son heard this, he decided that his father should not go on chemotherapy. He felt it would only cause him to suffer more and die even faster. He therefore decided to bring his father home instead.
After returning home, my husband just lay in bed without eating or drinking. Being tormented by pain every second, he just waited for his life to slowly come to its end. As the saying goes: If a person is not meant to die, he will somehow be saved. Maybe his life was not up yet, since he was born during the era when Dafa was being taught to people, and Master is saving sentient beings. I saw the painful state that my husband was in. Out of pity, I decided to try to persuade him again.
Before being diagnosed with this illness, I tried many times to persuade my husband to read the Dafa books, but he would not listen to me. This time, I solemnly told him, “Do you know what illness you are suffering from? It is cancer. There is no cure for this illness. You’d better take a look at the Dafa book and recite the nine words of truth, ‘Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.’ Only Falun Dafa can save your life. Only my Master can save you!” Just as he was feeling desperate, he nodded in agreement.
My husband started to recite the nine words – Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good. He thought to himself that since he did not have many days left, there was nothing in this mundane world he could not bear to part with. Thus, he continued to repeatedly recite the nine words without thinking about anything else. After three to four days, he felt hungry and started to eat. After a few more days, he could even speak with strength. I then gave him Zhuan Falun, and he persisted to read it page by page.
After about ten days, he sat up by himself and was able to read Zhuan Falun while sitting up. He also started to read truth-clarification materials and listen to podcasts of cultivation experience sharing articles by Dafa practitioners. He subsequently became more and more energetic. He was gradually able to go to the toilet by himself.
He was so happy that he kept reciting the nine Dafa words all the time. After six months, his physical health returned to normal. His experience made our relatives and friends very curious. Not only did my husband totally recover from late-stage colon cancer, but his temper also changed for the better. Whenever he meets anyone, he tells them, “My life was given to me by Dafa.”
During the Chinese New Year, my husband took out the truth-clarification couplets and said happily, “In the past, you all wanted to display this, but I did not allow you to do so. I was afraid of this and afraid of that. This year our house will especially put up these truth-clarification couplets.” That year my husband put the precious truth-clarification couplets on the door all by himself.
The couplets on the main door read:
“Rays of Golden Light Shine as the Divine Land Smiles. A Once in a Lifetime Opportunity to Meet Dafa When It Is Being Spread to the World”
The couplets on the other house door read:
“Remember Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance as We Welcome the New Year. Do Not Forget Our Gratitude to Dafa as We Bid the Old Year Goodbye”
My Son Also Changed After Seeing My Husband’s Recovery
After my son witnessed the whole process of how his father survived terminal cancer and avoided death, which is literally a legend in the mundane world, he changed from not believing in Dafa to supporting Dafa. That experience totally changed my son’s view of the world. He no longer believed the defamatory propaganda by the evil Party. He personally witnessed the power of Dafa.
My son told me about a situation he encountered. When he was outside he saw that a banner with the words “Falun Dafa” on it had fallen to the floor. He picked it up and hung it up again. He understands the universal principle that good will be rewarded with good, and bad rewarded with bad. Thus, he also quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its youth organizations. My son obtained blessings after doing these things.
Two years ago, my son was involved in a serious car accident. The car was totaled. The person who went to investigate the accident scene said, “The people in this car could not have survived!” However, my son survived without injury. It was Master who helped him survive this fatal catastrophe. My son said, “It was Dafa’s Master who protected me.”
