(Minghui.org) In July 1998, my mother suddenly started to lose weight. She felt weak and often coughed up blood. She was later diagnosed with advanced pulmonary tuberculosis. The doctor said her disease was incurable and told us to let her eat whatever she wanted.

My mother had a difficult life. In order to feed her big family, she did all kinds of work, no matter how hard or distasteful. She became ill from overwork. By 1998, she'd lost all her teeth. She also had stomach pain and developed duodenal ulcers as a result of poor digestion. She suffered from many illnesses such as heart disease, myocardial ischemia, insufficient blood supply to the brain, hypotension, neurasthenia, insomnia, a herniated lumbar disc, and rheumatism. No medical treatment she looked into helped.

I wept when I looked at my mother’s emaciated body lying in bed. Because of my mother’s plight and the stress he was under, my usually stoic father also wept. It felt like the sky was collapsing on us and I felt helpless!

When we were in the depths of despair, a villager brought my family hope.

My Mother’s Life Is Renewed

When our neighbor came to our house to borrow something, she saw my mother lying in bed and asked her what happened. My mother said that she was just waiting to die. The villager said, “You won’t die. I used to suffer from a very serious disease, and no doctor could cure me. I heard that some people had their illnesses resolved after they began practicing Falun Dafa, and I got better right after I began practicing. Look at me now, I can do my housework and the fieldwork without feeling tired. There is a group practice site nearby, and it is free. Just go and give it a try.”

My father put my mother on his bicycle and took her to the practice site early the next morning. Just one week after she started practicing, my mother was able to get out of bed without assistance. One month later she could walk to the practice site by herself to do the exercises. When she was examined at the hospital three months later, the doctor found only some areas of calcification in her lungs, but otherwise she was fine. The tuberculosis was gone! The doctor was amazed. My mother explained that she began practicing Falun Dafa.

After she began practicing Falun Dafa, all her illnesses completely disappeared. She began gaining weight and looked healthy and younger than she had for years. When she was a child, my mother only attended school for a few days, but she could read Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa. She could even read the smallest characters in the book. After they saw her amazing changes, our neighbors also began practicing Falun Dafa.

I was deeply indoctrinated by the Chinese Communist Party’s atheism since I was a small child. I did not believe in anything. I witnessed Falun Dafa’s miraculous health benefits and how extraordinary Dafa is, through my mother’s experience. After I saw these miracles with my own eyes, I knew Falun Dafa was profound and amazing!

My Father’s Rheumatism Disappeared

My father and I also started practicing Falun Gong in December 1998. He worked in the marine industry for 40 years and frequently went fishing. He developed severe rheumatism and could not stand in the water because it made his legs hurt. But after practicing Falun Gong, his legs no longer hurt.

My Son’s Chronic Tonsillitis Disappears

My son had swollen tonsils when he was a child and had a sore throat every day. He had difficulty eating, so he was shorter than most children his age. The doctor planned to remove his tonsils when my son was older. After I started practicing Falun Dafa, my son was also blessed. His throat stopped hurting, and he could eat whatever he wanted. He was stronger and began growing. He became a handsome boy.
