A Stranger’s Last 3 Months to Live

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 FItitle 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.

    Shit i'm a grown man I should not have been crying from the start to the end... I genuinely respect Matt's way of taking his time to show us how much of a good person he was and to get to know him instead of making it a story. I enjoyed seeing him smile all throughout the video they weren't fake smiles either he really fulfilled a man's entire life with happiness not to mention getting his heroes to say his name and send him a video... Imagine how happy he would be to hear that 3.2 million people will remember him forever and use his happiness to change our daily lives for the better. Xavier basically changed the world for the better or atleast everyone who watched this great video I don't like negativity but I want more videos like this

    One year later and I'm seeing that this is one of the last projects Matt worked on before his decision to take a backseat from the content creation side of Yes Theory and I just want to say, thank you Matt for making a difference in all of our lives. Projects like this show how great of a person you are, and you're an inspiration to young people such as myself who want to make a difference in the world. I'm on a career path to become a conservationist in Africa and Yes Theory has inspired me so much to create change and preserve the good of this world. Thank you for all you've done Matt!

    This story touched my heart so much. I have cried a lot. I’m currently in Afghanistan supporting our military. I haven’t gone anywhere for more than a year. Stuck here cause of the pandemic. I haven’t seen my family. Watching the video made me be so grateful for the life I have even tho I have been down for months. What a beautiful human you all are. Luke saved a month of his salary to visit Xavier. I really love it. May Xavier Rest In Peace. Xavier is a fighter and has a beautiful family. I would like to buy Luke a plane to ticket to California or whatever place he wants to travel to. I want to do something on my part. I have been watching your videos while here in Afghanistan. Thank you for all that you do. I couldn’t get an email for you. Can you please give me your email address.

    This brought me tears but also joy seeing the connection between all the people involved trying to bring Xavier support and love. I’ve lost too many loved ones to cancer especially when it was too soon for them to go. My uncle passed away last March and my aunt the July before that and my other aunt is battling cancer right now. It’s especially hard for her and our family during covid not wanting to bring virus around. Trying to stay as safe as possible but I think of all the time alone she has at home and I wish I could spend more time with her. She’s fighting for sure but I know it’s hard my uncle was her husband so it’s even more lonely and difficult battling something that just took her husband from her. This encourages me to try to bring her connection and joy as much as possible and it reminds me to embrace life much more. I’ve always tried to connect with others and truly see them and make them feel seen. My aunt and uncle were two people who made me feel seen and loved me unconditionally it’s definitely left me with hole in my heart but maybe someone will read this comment and be inspired to make others feel the way my aunt and uncle made me feel! Especially during this time. Love your loved ones and have courage and be kind. Lots of love! Rip Xavier ❤️
