(Minghui.org) Jiang Zemin, the former head of the Chinese Communist Party, launched the persecution of Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999, using all available brutal means to try to force Dafa practitioners to renounce their faith. Many practitioners’ homes were raided and their Dafa books were confiscated. I was also targeted. In order to protect the books, I wrapped my Dafa books and hid them at my brother’s place for a long time before I took them home.
The police harassed Dafa disciples whenever there was a so-called “sensitive date.” My brother always protected Dafa disciples when needed. I said, “You are accumulating great virtue and doing great deeds to protect good people. Heaven will give you great blessings and keep you safe.”
It turned out that my brother was truly blessed by Master. Originally, he had no entitlement to social security and medical insurance. Later, his work unit decided to offer entitlements to some employees who met the requirements. My brother happened to meet the minimum requirements. They approved his social security, but his medical insurance was not approved for some unknown reasons, and it stayed like that for several years.
The new leader of his work unit discovered in March 2017 that he didn’t have health insurance yet. So the leader immediately ordered a medical insurance card for him. His salary was also increased.
In addition to his social security and medical insurance, my brother also recovered from colon cancer and experienced no pain while going through chemotherapy.
On February 22, 2021, my then-67-year-old brother asked me to accompany him to the hospital, as he had not eaten or had bowel movements for a few days and was bloated. When I arrived there, I told him to recite “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” so he began to recite it in his heart.
The tertiary care hospital advised that we go to the West China Hospital of Sichuan University, one of the top hospitals in the province, for emergency treatment. My brother had neglected treating a hernia in the past. Although I asked him to go to the hospital for surgery on several occasions, he always ignored it. This time, the attack was so severe that even the tertiary hospital could not help him.
It was after 11:00 p.m. when the doctors at the emergency department of West China Hospital finished running various preliminary tests. The emergency department doctor notified a hernia professor to examine my brother, and he was soon admitted to the inpatient unit for surgery.
During the surgery, the doctor found that his abdominal intestine was ulcerated. A bit of fluid was flowing out, and his small intestine had blackened. The professor said, “It might be colon cancer; a biopsy should be done and the anus should be rerouted (to create a stoma in the stomach, through which feces is discharged).” My brother’s family was asked to sign the consent form for his second surgery.
The operation went well, and my brother stayed in the operating room for eleven hours before being transferred to a ward. Later, when the professor checked on him, he said to my brother, “If you had arrived at the hospital a day later, you would have been dead. It was lucky that you came just in time.”
Due to the pandemic, only one family member was able to accompany him in the hospital, and no other visitors were permitted. One week later, my brother was discharged from the hospital. The discharge record identified that he had intermediate-late stage colon cancer. They recommended he go to a rehabilitation hospital where his family could visit him.
The next day, I went to visit him and brought him a Dafa amulet. I asked if he wanted it and he said yes and put it in his pocket. I asked him to continue reciting “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” and he said yes.
I went to see him again two days later. This time, I brought a recording of Master’s lectures in Guangzhou and asked if he wanted to listen. He said yes. Because my brother is very supportive of my practicing Dafa and knows that Dafa is good, he has already quit the Chinese Communist Party, the Youth League, and Young Pioneers organizations, and he often wore a Dafa amulet. I told him that Master was protecting him and that’s why he was doing so well.
He was later prescribed eight courses of chemotherapy and each session ran smoothly with no side affects or physical reactions. The patients in his room found it strange. The nurses always asked him, “Sir, is there any physical discomfort?” and he always said no. I knew Master was protecting him, and I’m grateful to Master.
His body recovered very well with all indicators of the physical examination reading normal. Before organizing the anal repair, the West China Hospital professor requested another appointment, as the initial hospital visit was for hernia treatment. It was only after his abdomen was opened that the colon cancer was found.
Since my brother was listening to Master’s Guangzhou lectures, I made more recordings for him from fellow practitioners’ cultivation stories, stories of remembrance of Master’s Grace, Minghui Radio, and the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party. If he found parts difficult to understand, I explained things according to my understandings. He started his mornings by listening to Master’s lectures at 4 or 5 a.m., and at night he recited “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good” before he went to sleep.
My brother was notified on March 12, 2022 that he would be admitted to the hospital for anal repair surgery. After the pre-admission checkup and the physical examination showed that all indicators were all normal, he had the surgery. He recovered very well afterwards.
