YouTube host Ben Breedlove
"A powerful story from YouTube we felt we had to honor by sharing."
Published: 4th January 2012 | Source: YouTube |
This really isnt the type of news article you will be used to on OC3D, but it is such a powerful heart wrenching story we just felt we had to share it with everyone. Some people use YouTube to help them choose a product, learn how to get past a level in a game or just to laugh at someone elses misfortune. Ben Breedlove however used it to share his story about living with a life threatening heart disease called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.
Ben sadly died on Christmas Day after a lifetime of fighting the disease. Not only would we like to pass on our deepest condolences to his family and friends but we would also like to share his videos with you here so that his story not only gets shared but to help his memory live on.
