John’s Photos Go Viral With 5,300 Facebook Likes!

By Adam Pick on October 24, 2017

The power of our patient community never ceases to amaze me. You guys and gals are simply amazing!!!

Interestingly… When you combine our “patient power” with social media, some unexpected and wonderful things can happen that drive awesome awareness to heart valve disease.  For example, John Dodson had aortic valve replacement due to aortic stenosis last week.  During John’s hospital stay, Seth (his son) posted several inspirational photos at John’s journal.  After seeing these inspirational photos, I posted them at our Facebook page.  Then, these photos went viral and were shared all over the world.  In total, John’s pictures had over 5,300 Facebook Likes and 750 Comments.

Here’s John flashing our community two “thumbs-up” just 4 hours after surgery. This one photo had 4,800 Facebook Likes, 619 Comments and 225 Timeline Shares. Fantastic!

 

 

Here’s another picture of John that received over 800 Facebook Likes. That’s Seth (John’s son) in the pre-operating room.

 

 

Although not posted at Facebook, here’s a great picture of John walking down the hospital halls — just one day after surgery.

 

 

Many, many, many thanks to John for sharing his inspirational story and his wonderful pictures with our community!  And, many thanks to Seth for keeping us updated on John’s progress!

Keep on tickin’ John!
