Posted Dec 29, 2011

18-year old Austin, Texas teenager Ben Breedlove passed away on Christmas Day. About a week before he passed away, he made a couple of videos on YouTube about the heart condition that he was born with. In the video Breedlove used flashed index cards to describe what he was going through. “I was never allowed to play all the sports that my friends did,” said Breedlove in the cards he wrote. “It kinda sucks that I missed out on that part of my life. I really just hoped that I could be the same as everyone else.” Breedlove also mentioned how he cheated death several times and about how his favorite rapper is Kid Cudi. Cudi also appeared in one of his visions moments during when he thought he was going to die. After watching the videos, Kid Cudi broke down and cried and then wrote a blog post about it. Above are the videos that Breedlove made. Sometimes when you think life isn’t fair for you, just imagine what Ben was going through. His videos are extremely candid and he seemed like a very gentle guy. Thank you for leaving behind these messages, Ben. []
