Sometimes, a random coincidence might become life-changing. A random Twitter user can save your life with their message, and these aren’t just words. It’s a real story of a man and his mother who now have a great life thanks to a person they accidentally bumped into on Twitter.
Daily reminder to go to your doctor and get a checkup. Thanks to all my friends for coming by today. And my mom. 1st Surgery Monday. pic.twitter.com/qVDua9PHUZ— Shane Mac (@ShaneMac) 26 березня 2017 р.
Shane Mac once tweeted about a complicated surgery he had. In addition to his mother being devastated by his state, there was her younger sister who died right after the surgery. You can imagine the mood this family had at the moment.
They believe I'll make full recovery. I'm doing alright, just left arm numb and blood thinners before surgery for 2 days. But I got Bball! pic.twitter.com/O3Viz0TxaA— Shane Mac (@ShaneMac) 25 березня 2017 р.
After the tweet, a Stanford guy texted Shane. He recommended him one of the best doctors, Dr. Lee. And it was a real truth. Not only did he help Shane with his problem, but also there was one more thing he did for Shane’s family.
His mother had 90% blockage in both arteries of her legs.
LA doctors offered to cut her open. But it was a risky business. When Shane recalled about Dr. Lee, he contacted the man immediately. And the message he got in return was life-saving:
I can help.
The story ended so great, you won’t believe. The next day after the surgery, his mother was able to walk 1.5 miles!
It’s a perfect example of how the dots connected in the right way, and a simple tweet helped at least one family to be happier.

Here’s the story. Crying tears of joy today for my mom, all because I sent a tweet. pic.twitter.com/kJ09K7VZsf
And here's what other Tweeter users had to say, when they heard a social network message might become life-saving.
Obviously love that Twitter played a role but as a doctor’s daughter, couldn’t agree more :)— freia lobo (@freialobo) 20 травня 2018 р.
A surgeon saved my Dad’s life + I’ll never forget that he rushed to the hospital still in a tux after leaving a Christmas party ❤️ My fiancé is in resident gen surg training. Having worked long hours in tech... nothing compares to the sacrifice doctors and their families make.— Allison Esposito (@allisonveronica) 19 травня 2018 р.
Stanford saved my Mom’s life too.— Topher (@RealTopher707) 20 травня 2018 р.
