I am a thirteen-year-old Falun Gong practitioner from China. The only thing I can say is, "Thank you, Master1 and Falun Dafa for saving me when I was on the verge of death."
According to my grandmother, I started showing signs of illness when I was just four years old and even after six months of medical exams, the doctors still did not know what I had. Only later, did we discover that it was "bone tuberculosis." My family was very poor at the time and my father had tuberculosis and needed injections continually. He was hospitalised many times, which cost a lot of money. We borrowed from many relatives and friends. Despite all the treatment, my father died a few years later. When I was five years old, according to my grandmother, I underwent three surgical operations to remove growths; the first one was on my back. However, not long after, there was another growth on my shoulder, so a second operation was necessary. Not long after that another one appeared on my foot, which led to yet another operation. Although three operations were performed, it was not over. I had a bleeding infection that drained continually. A lot of money was spent on my treatment. The hospital had discovered that it was an incurable disease after its original diagnosis, yet they performed the surgeries without telling us! We borrowed money from all of our relatives and friends, two of whom were Traditional Chinese doctors, who also said that the condition was incurable.
I was brought home to live out the rest of my remaining life. Because my father died, and now I was dying, my mother could not handle the pressure and left home with my sister. My sister and I are twins. I heard that my mother left with tears in her eyes. Ever since then, I have lived with my grandmother and grandfather.
They both looked everywhere for folk medicines, but nothing worked. My grandma couldn't sleep or eat well and both she and grandfather cried daily. They didn't want to see me die, but who could save me?
One day in March of 2000, my grandmother met a kind person who practised Falun Dafa. She told my grandmother, "Why don't you practise Falun Dafa? Only Falun Dafa can save your whole family. If you truly practise Falun Dafa, the disease will be cured." This is how my grandmother and I started to practise Falun Dafa.
At the beginning, I couldn't even stand or sit up to listen to the teachings of Falun Gong. We received fourteen audiotapes of Master Li's lectures comprising of the teachings of Falun Gong. Because my grandmother and I could not read at the time, we listened to the lectures every day. After listening for a while, I could sit up. Then my grandmother borrowed a copy of Zhuan Falun2 from a fellow practitioner, who also taught me how to read and use a dictionary. My grandfather also taught me how to read. Within six months, my illness was cured.
It was Master Li who saved me! Master Li and Falun Dafa saved my whole family.
Grandfather brought me to the hospital to determine the condition of the bone tuberculosis, but they were unable to find anything wrong with my body. The hospital gave permission for me to return to school.
At the moment I am in the second grade, because I don't know too many words. I can't write any deep understanding of Falun Dafa, but I just want to thank Master and thank Falun Dafa.
I want Falun Dafa to be treated fairly, but those who practise such a good practice are persecuted in China. Falun Dafa teaches people to do good, avoid doing bad deeds, help people and always think of other people first. Truthfulness, Compassion and Tolerance are what Master teaches us!
I will do the three things Master requires of us, which are studying the teachings of Falun Gong, sending forth righteous thoughts and clarifying the truth. I will continually improve myself.
Fellow practitioners, please point out any errors in my understanding.
1.Master - Respectfully referring to the founder of Falun Gong, Mr Li Hongzhi.
2. Zhuan Falun - the core teachings of Falun Gong, translates as Turning the Law Wheel
