Eugene Finney is probably the only person who can say a shark attack saved their life. Finney is 39-year-old from Finchburg, Massachusetts and like any regular guy he was enjoying a day out with his family. He saw a giant wave coming towards him. So, he pulled his daughter offshore. Later they discovered that he was snapped at by a shark. Fortunately, both he and his kid survived. But what happened next will amaze you!
He visited hospital a few days later because of some residual pain.
After a CAT scan, doctors found a small, cancerous tumor on his kidney. 'I got a message from Mother Nature,' Finney told the Washington Post. 'That's what started this series of events that brought me to the hospital to let me know about this. 'Otherwise I would never have gone in, and they wouldn't have caught it.
'The only real way I would have found out was the tumor growing so large it was metastasizing and spreading and then, I would have the symptoms of stage four cancer. 'I would have started losing weight and getting sick and at that point it would have been too late.' - He added.
Thankfully Doctors were able to catch the tumor far earlier than usual. It's been just three months he was diagnosed, and he is out now with no signs of cancer.
