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 EEproject 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.

  • My grandpa passed away February 1st of 2020. When he was first diagnosed with only a couple months to live. We got 18 months with him. He held on as long as he could for all of us, his family. He had 14 kids and having 36ish grandchildren he said after the first great grand child he was ready to go. And on his death bed he said he wanted to say goodbye to everyone. This video really warmed my heart, death is such an ugly and depressing this and this showed how to honor someone so strong.

  • I know first hand watching a loved one suffer and be confined to their bed is not easy. For them its hard, lonely, and scary. The surprises and the time spent with him showing him love and support are the most comforting tools you can give. Thank you for being an angel in this mans life! RIP buddy!

  • It’s hard hearing you have cancer. When I was told that I had cancer, I just wanted my world to end I just wanted to isolate myself and be left alone but like Xavier said you have to be strong always put new goals and that exactly what I did. Now I’m cancer free and don’t let anything stop be anymore and I now I seek discomfort and do things I never did before being diagnosed.

  • 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
