A woman got in touch with the man with “stage 4 renal cancer” after seeing his wife's post about his condition on Facebook.

A man with “stage 4 renal cancer” was given a new lease on life by a woman who was a complete stranger to him. Chase Cooper suffered kidney failure and was advised that he put his name on a transplant list, which would mean he could end up waiting several years before receiving this vital organ. Following this, his wife posted a Facebook post asking for help. Surprisingly, a stranger contacted them to help them in this dire situation.

“God is good. That is all I can think to say. What an incredible storyline he wrote for us and Hanna. Hard to fathom that a total stranger, compelled by her faith and following/growing in it - saved MY HUSBAND. Never will there be another day that Hanna is anything but family to us,” Cooper’s wife, Kaila Dawn Cooper, wrote in a Facebook post.
