SC woman credits Facebook survey with saving her life


GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – It’s something we’ve all done, taken a quiz on Facebook, but one Upstate woman tells us one of those quizzes saved her life.

Sammy Marler saw a Bon Secours St. Francis heart risk survey on social media and decided to go through it even though she did not have any heart problem symptoms.

The results led to a cardiologist call, an appointment and the news that she had four blocked arteries and needed bypass surgery.

“I said to my surgeon, ‘Would I have had a heart attack had I not taken the survey’ and he said probably worse than that,” Marler said.

She credits that survey to saving her life.
