 Words With Friends Averts A Massive Cardiac Arrest

During her customary playtime on the game, 'Words with Friends', Georgie Fletcher found herself playing with Beth Legler of Blue Springs, Missouri.

She felt so comfortable with Legler, that soon she found herself chatting about her husband's health concerns on the game's instant messaging space.

Later, Beth had discussed their conversation with her Doctor husband, Larry. It did not take much time for Larry to recognize the gravity of the situation.  Georgie Fletcher's husband was serious and he needed to go to the hospital.

When Simon Fletcher consulted with a Medical Specialist, he was diagnosed with a 99% blockage near his heart. This meant that a cardiac arrest was imminent and he could have suffered it at any moment.

Simon underwent treatment and is now on the road to good health. Expressing his gratitude, Simon said, "I owe Larry everthing...I'm really lucky to be here."
