Shareef O’Neal thanks fans for support after undergoing heart surgery

Shareef O'Neal

Shareef O’Neal made it out of his heart surgery successfully on Thursday night, and he had his fans in mind afterwards.

The UCLA Bruin sent a tweet in the evening thanking his fans for all the “love and support,” saying that helped him through his surgery.

O’Neal, the son of NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, was part of a highly-touted recruiting class at UCLA, but he is taking a medical redshirt season after an electrical problem was discovered in his heart during a routine check in the fall. The surgery is supposed to correct the issue and help O’Neal play at full strength in the future.

O’Neal has faced this potential scary situation with nothing but optimism. That positive attitude should serve him well throughout his recovery.
