Teenage Boy Passes On Christmas, Leaves Behind A Beautiful Story {VIDEOS}

Ben Breedlove passed away at the young at of 18 on Christmas night. He was diagnosed with Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy as a child and had been living his life to its capacity as long as he could.

Ben seemed like a very wise young man who knew what he had to deal with and didn’t let it stop him. I thought this story was important for you to read because it’s touching. It’s a reminder to be thankful of everything we have (and everything we don’t). Ben’s condition is medically believed to be genetic and worse if you have it while you’re young.

It seems that Ben and his family have learned a great deal through this experience. Ben was very wise to the fact that he could die at any time. That is why he made and posted these videos for the world to see. Not only did it help him release his real fears and emotions, it has also helped his family to cope. Knowing that he was happy and so at peace with his condition helped a great deal in letting his memory stay positive.

In “This Is My Story (Part 2)” Ben tells viewers how he’s cheated death for a third time. On December 6, 2011 he ended up back in the hospital. He goes into detail on how his near-death experience was almost dream-like. He was visited in his “vision” by his favorite rapper, Kid Cudi. When the rapper saw the videos, he took to his blog to let his fans know how touched he was. “I broke down, Iam to tears because I hate how life is so unfair.” Read Kid Cudi’s full letter to Ben HERE.
