(Minghui.org) My father is 69 years old. He is very healthy and energetic, so much so that people often think he is only in his 50s. But back in 2019, he was a lung cancer patient and tormented by chemotherapy.

My father had been generally healthy and had no significant illnesses. But one day in August 2018, he began to cough nonstop. In the beginning, he thought he had just caught a cold, so he simply took some medication and had some injections at a local clinic.

However, his cough persisted. Then, he went to see a Chinese herbal doctor and took herbal medicine for 30 days. He still didn't get any better.

My father finally went to the local hospital to do a thorough check-up and was told to undergo a bronchoscopy, which was an extremely painful procedure.

The results indicated that there was an 80% chance that my father had lung cancer. We sought a second opinion from a doctor that we knew and he said the same thing and suggested that we go to a better hospital to double-check, and not to tell my father before it was confirmed.

We went to a famous cancer center in Shanghai and saw a well-known thoracic surgeon. After many tests, the surgeon diagnosed my father with late-stage lung cancer and recommended chemotherapy before switching to targeted therapy.

We took his advice and returned to our hometown. I had my father admitted to the local hospital, and only told him that we got him the best imported medicine and he would be better after a few days of infusions. He was a little skeptical but still started the one-week chemotherapy session. The whole process was extremely painful. A week later, he remained nauseous every day and experienced vomiting and diarrhea. His entire body was in great pain.

As a Falun Dafa practitioner, my mother had always encouraged my father to practice this spiritual and meditation discipline. After the chemotherapy, my mother decided to tell my father his diagnosis and also told him that the current treatment was only to extend his life. But, if he gave Falun Dafa a try, he might have a chance to recover.

When my father learned that he had late-stage cancer, he decided not to continue the chemotherapy and was prescribed some drugs to take at home as a part of targeted therapy. My father took the medication, but he was very weak, as a few steps of walking would exhaust him. In addition, many tiny blisters grew around his body and a few big ones appeared around his neck. But, his doctor said it was normal after undergoing the targeted therapy. My father couldn't eat or sleep well. Even though he was alive, he would rather die.

With no effective treatment in sight, he decided to practice Falun Dafa as his last hope.

On the same night when he started to do the Falun Dafa exercises, he slept well for the first time in a while. He did the exercises and studied Falun Dafa's teachings with my mother every day. Gradually, he became stronger. After a period of practicing, even the minor diseases he had, such as stomach aches and high blood pressure, were gone.

In addition, Falun Dafa’s principles “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” turned him into a gentler person. Our relatives who witnessed his changes couldn't help but admire how amazing Falun Dafa is. My uncle, who was against my mother’s practicing Falun Dafa, changed his mind and accepted the fact that the Chinese Communist Party is slandering Falun Dafa. He also agreed to withdraw his membership from the CCP.

A year later, my father went back to the hospital for a check-up. The CT results showed that he had completely recovered. It is Falun Dafa that gave my father a new life, and our whole family couldn't be more appreciative!
