Liver Cancer Patient Obtains a New Lease on Life
Diagnosed with Aggressive Cancer
I am a twenty-four year old woman from Chongqing, China who emigrated to Japan soon after graduating from university. Newly married, my husband and I were looking forward to our future together when I was suddenly diagnosed with advanced liver cancer at a hospital in Hokkaido.
In disbelief, we consulted with doctors at a few other hospitals, only to receive the same diagnosis. With no other option, I underwent surgery this past February to remove my entire right liver lobe. During a checkup in April, doctors discovered that my cancer had recurred, and found it had spread to my skull. They advised surgery to replace the pieces of infected skull with artificial bone implants.
However, the operation would just postpone my death a little. The doctors all concurred that the cancer cells were multiplying too fast to be treated effectively. Upon hearing their diagnosis, I nearly collapsed in shock, bemoaning my ill fate. At this point, my husband told me, “Only Falun Dafa can save you.”
Obtaining and Cultivating the Fa
My husband had started practicing Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) in 2012 while studying in a Mainland university. He diligently cultivated until he graduated and started working abroad. Faced with the temptations of society, and moreover, having married someone who was not cultivating, he soon gave up cultivation.
He encouraged me by saying, “A person who believes in the Dao can die content knowing that she has obtained salvation.” Convinced, I agreed to read Zhuan Falun.
I used to be a member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and was an atheist. Although I had quit the CCP after my husband told me of the truth about Falun Gong, some doubts remained. Faced with this life-threatening crisis, I vowed, “If this cranial operation succeeds with my mental faculties intact, I will start reading Zhuan Falun and cultivate diligently! I want to put my faith in Falun Dafa!”
The cranial surgery in May was successful, and my recovery was so swift that I was able to perform the sitting meditation on the third day. I read Master’s lectures during my hospitalization and came to understand that Dafa practitioners are required to do the three things well. From then on, I refused to regard myself as an ordinary person and refused the various chemotherapy and radiation treatment options offered by doctors. Within less than two weeks, I was discharged from the hospital.
Doing the Three Things Well
One day, I had a dream in which I knelt before Master and told him, “I am finally a practitioner!” Master did not verbally reply, but gave me a very compassionate smile. I described this dream to my husband who told me, “Master is encouraging you!”
After returning home, I met with local practitioners and began to participate in daily truth clarification activities at tourist sites. Despite such physical exertion so soon after my operation, my body felt light and healthy.
I should also mention that immediately after my operation, yellow pus continually flowed from the incision in my head. Although I was not worried because I knew that Master was cleansing my body, I was concerned about the impression tourists would have if they noticed my oozing wound. Hence, I begged Master to temporarily halt the flow while I was outside clarifying the truth. Miraculously, my wound really stopped oozing once I stepped out of my home, and it resumed its flow upon my return. Within two weeks my wound was healed.
Two months later, I visited the hospital for follow-up tests. My doctor was pleasantly surprised to see that my blood platelets were returning to normal. However, he was stunned when I informed him that I had not been taking any of the prescribed anti-cancer medications.
After cultivating in Dafa, my character underwent a major change. I had been short-tempered and used to believe that women were meant to be stronger than men. This led to frequent, angry quarrels with my husband. After reading the poem “Yin and Yang Reversed” in Master’s Hong Yin III, I realized that my mindset was wrong and began to embrace my warmer, gentler side. After hearing my husband describe my personality change, his amazed Chinese colleague immediately expressed interest in asking his wife to learn the practice.
Treasuring This Rare Opportunity
Most of my family members have quit the CCP after hearing the truth behind the persecution of Falun Dafa, and all are convinced of Dafa’s goodness! I know that entering cultivation practice at this point in time is not easy. However, I am determined to treasure this opportunity granted by our compassionate Master and cultivate to the best of my abilities.
