Woman discovers brain tumor after getting spat on at concert
Jordan Buckley, the guitarist for Every Time I Die, relayed the shocking story on his Twitter feed, explaining that a fan had credited him with saving her life after he spat a beer fountain into the air and some splashed into her eye at a recent show.
A lady came up to me and said “I saw you guys a little bit ago, and you spit beer in the air, and I was in front and some got in my eye.” I apologized. Said our shows get wacky, never know what’s gonna happen. I was probably just trying to mimic someone way cooler than me...— jordan buckley (@JordanETID) July 21, 2018
The woman approached Buckley a while later and explained she had been at his concert and that his beer had landed in her eye. Still bothering her the next day, the woman told Buckley that she thought she had an eye infection and that she had gone to the doctor.
She said the next day it was still bothering her. And she thought her eye was infected so she went to the doctor. I apologized 10 more times. Braced myself for a lawsuit...— jordan buckley (@JordanETID) July 21, 2018
Buckley apologized profusely and braced himself for a lawsuit – but he should have been expecting a ‘thank you’ card instead, because after tests were performed, the woman discovered she had a brain tumor – and not only that, but it had been caught early enough to perform surgery to have it removed.
So she went to the doctor. They did tests. Doctor said she didn’t have an eye infection, she had a brain tumor, but they caught it early enough to perform surgery and remove it...— jordan buckley (@JordanETID) July 21, 2018
So, apparently in some cases beer – or going to concerts (we’re not sure which) – could save your life.
She said it never would have gotten caught had she not gone in. She then thanked me for saving her life.— jordan buckley (@JordanETID) July 21, 2018
