A Stranger’s Last 3 Months to Live

175 640
When I met Xavier Romero in July of 2019, he'd been given 1 week left to live. He was suffering from a rare form of liver cancer and doctors had given up hope. After hearing his story, I knew I wanted to meet him. Little did I know Xavier would beat all the odds and that we would get to know each other and become brothers.
Over three months of getting to know him, he taught me about what it means to fight for your life, to love unconditionally and to appreciate every single breath. He always wanted to start a EEcard channel and I told him that no matter what, his story would be told. He took comfort in that. Here is that story.
I know he's here with us. I know he's watching this video and smiling at these beautiful moments we got to spend with each other. I miss him and I know I'll see him again one day.
Thank you for watching. It means a lot to me and I know it means a lot to him.

He is beautiful. May God give him the healthiest body in his next life. I have no words to explain what these mixed feelings I am feeling are. I think we should learn cause that's what life is about. We should learn that it's easy to say "I wish I could die" or "god kill me!" but what if your life actually gets taken away. Let's give value what we've received.

Something tragic happenedin November . I woke up as I heard the notification bell ring. Some senior had messaged me"you know what happened right?". I had no idea what she was talking about. She then told me that one of my very dear and amazing friends was dead because of an accident. I never thought I would receive this burst of emotion because I consider myself to be highly controlling of my emotions. But my hands started shaking and I cried and cried. We still miss him everyday...walking in the school garden,we come across places where we sat with him. Spending invaluable time. He'll always be in my heart.luvud

I am crying so much right now when I read that he died I cried more than the entire ocean and hearing what he was going through just made it worse. This is inspiring video of why you must cherish what you love. What you guys did for him was amazing just to see.

Rest easy Xavier. Your fight reminds me of my mom’s fight with cancer. You both fought as hard and as long as you possibly could but lost the battle. I admire your strength. You never gave into taking your own life, as much as you questioned it.. it’s hard. I struggle with those thoughts, and it’s not easy to talk yourself down from it. I’m so glad you had your brother to save your life and give you more time. You were bright and had a beautiful soul. I’m so happy that YesTheory was able to make you smile and have a dream of yours come true. May you rest in peace, with no more hurt.

This is so amazing. My godmother/aunt is currently going through terminal cancer and it’s so hard to see the people you love deteriorating as every day passes. That’s why life is so special. Any day could be the last one. You guys are amazing, I’m such a big fan. Mad respect for you it’s my dream to be able to do exactly what you guys are doing now.

My best friend was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, and originally told that she had a month left. But she's a fighter. 7+ months, many seizures, and a small stroke later she hasn't given up, and is even still going to school.

I just became a firefighter when i got some bad news my self. that i got cancer at my ribs on my left side. i have to get removed 3 ribs after i have gotten some chemotherapy. at the age of 21 im scared to Leave my mom, sister and brother they dont deserve to go though this with me. . this is a strong inspiration to keep fighting my self. i will think about Xavier long after this video. Stay strong and enjoy life. while you have it.

I pray that Xavier's family remember that everything happens for a reason. Even if what happens seems like that worst possible thing, there is a reason, whether that be opening a door to someone's heart or opening someone's eyes to the many gifts and blessings that we all have been given. Rest in peace, Xavier Romero. You will live on in the hearts and thoughts of your family, and, through Yes Theory, many others.

I’m 13, and I’m not going to make this about me. But I’ve struggled with depression, anxiety, self harm and suicidal thoughts. And I’m proud to say since I watched this video I’ve been two months clean of self harm. This is so inspiring and I would have been honoured to meet this man. May you rest in peace, you are amazing Xavier. And to the man who made this video, you are amazing too. What a beautiful story, i’ll be sharing this with everyone. I hope this inspires everyone to keep fighting as it did for me.
