Cindy McCain said she posted the message so the poster's "family and friends could see."
"I want to make sure all of you could see how kind and loving a stranger can be," McCain wrote.
'I can't understand why': Mitt Romney criticizes Trump for attacks on the late John McCain
McCain has spent the past few days retweeting defenses of her husband after President Donald Trump attacked him in a tweet Sunday.

The president said Tuesday, "I was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be."
The president's statements drew condemnation from those within his own party, including Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah and Johnny Isakson of Georgia.
