Ms. Guo Lin taught traditional Chinese painting and, at 43, was diagnosed with uterine cancer. She had her uterus removed in 1949 while in Shanghai, China. Unfortunately, it spread to her bladder and, in 1960, had half of it removed. After four additional operations, the doctors gave up and, in 1964, told her she had months to live.
Not one to give up hope, she searched for options. Then by chance, she found, while cleaning her home, ancient Qigong texts left to her by her late grandfather (a Taoist priest). Without a sifu or instructor, she self-taught herself these forms. Incredible as this sounds, in after six months, Guolin’s cancer went into remission.
