Doctors across the world are sharing their experiences with their patients, especially about cases where they went an extra mile for the sake of their patients on Twitter with the hashtag #ShareAStoryInOneTweet

These tweets are getting widespread attention with most of these tweets getting thousands of retweets and being quoted by others in their tweets.

Many such stories and tales have been shared on Twitter in the last 24 hours, stories that would make a person regain belief and faith in humanity.

The first tweet with the hashtag appears on the timeline of Dr. Esther Choo, an emergency physician at Oregon Health and Science University.

She wrote, “When I first met B, he’d been dead for 20 min. We got him back, inexplicably. He calls me every year on the anniversary. 10 years now. #ShareAStoryInOneTweet”

Her tweets made other doctors share their stories. Dr Choo was in news last year after her twitter thread about her experiences with white nationalist patients in the aftermath of Charlottesville incident went viral.

Palliative Pediatrician Alastair McAlpine from Cape Town wrote the story of a kid who was 450 grams at birth with rare chances of survival. He stayed up with her for 2 days to help her breathe. 6 years later he witnessed the kid perform her first ballet.

Cardiac Anesthesiologist Sasha Shillcutt wrote the story of a person who was hit by a car in front of her. She performed CPR on him but didn’t think he’ll live. Six months later the person called her to thank her for saving his life.
