After Christmas death, teen leaves online message behind
What a legacy this young man left behind. His videos will make you cry, so have tissues ready. Amazing young man.
Have you cried yet today? No? Here, we can fix that.
Ben Breedlove, an 18-year-old high school senior in Austin, Texas, died on Christmas Day of a heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, something he'd had all of his life. But he left behind two wordless videos on his YouTube channel, in which he used a series of note cards with handwritten messages to tell his life story, including the three times he "cheated death."

What a marvelous young man! Did you notice his big grin every time he held up a card about the light or the peace he felt when he first cheated death at age four?

Sounds like the only thing that could have saved him was a heart transplant. I wonder why it wasn't attempted. Was he on the list?Just my opinion
