(Minghui.org) I was devastated when I was diagnosed with leukemia. I was still young, in my 40s, and was living with my family in the countryside. I was not feeling well and I went for a check-up. I never expected to be so ill.

I wanted to be there for my family, but I began to feel worse every day, so I went to a hospital in Changchun. I was told that I needed blood transfusions, but I did not have the finances to cover this cost. I went home feeling hopeless.

I have a relative in Changchun who is a Falun Dafa practitioner. When she heard about my health issue she came to visit me. She brought me a cassette player and the recordings of Master Li Hongzhi (the founder of Falun Dafa). She asked me to study the teachings with her. She explained that after she began to practice Falun Dafa she recovered from her illnesses. She said that Dafa was a path to enlightenment and it could save my life.

She is in her 70s, healthy, and with a beautiful rosy complexion. I felt hopeful.

I agreed to study the Dafa teachings with her the next day. Other practitioners also joined us. They studied all morning, but I quickly fell asleep. When I woke up, my mind was clear. I never felt sleepy during Fa study after that. Later I understood that my body was being purified that first morning while I slept.

I began to study the Fa and do the exercises every day. I came to understand more and more of Dafa's principles. Dafa has set the standards of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance for us, so we become good people. It also requires us to be considerate of others in everything, and to always think of others. I have been using Dafa's principles to guide my daily life.

Four years have gone by. The leukemia I was diagnosed with is completely gone and I did not have to spend a penny. I opened a small restaurant that has been doing well. My family is happy. No words can express my gratitude to Master and Dafa for giving me a new life.
