How getting hit in the head saved a man’s life

Sometimes, a painful moment in your life turns out to be the best thing that could ever happen to you.

Chris Logan, 25, had his day cut short last July 4th when a tee shot from Sean O’Hair struck him in the left temple at the 18th hole of a golf tournament in Pennsylvania.

As Philly.com tells it…


While checking him out for a concussion, a doctor inquired about a lump just below his throat and urged him to visit his family doctor to get it checked out. The lump turned out to be a malignant tumor on his thyroid. He underwent two surgeries less than six weeks after being struck by the ball.

This week, the two got a chance to meet.


“Sorry,” O’Hair said as the two men shook hands.

“Thank you,” Logan said, almost at the same time.

“We had a little battle on what to say,” said Logan, 25, of West Chester. “He hit me in the head and then helped me out with the cancer diagnosis. So that was pretty funny. He’s a really nice guy, glad to finally meet him.”
