A Stranger’s Last 3 Months to Live
Yes Theory
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 NOsoft 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.

      I know no one will read this but I thought I would give it a shot. I need help & i am scared to asked for it. My mom has heart failure & is about to lose her eye sight. All she has ever wanted is to see America. She's lived in Texas her whole life. So I made a GoFund Me page for her. If anyone is interested in checking it out here is the link: www.gofundme.com/f/1wpf6ag500?+share-sheet Thanks. I love you Yes Theory! You are my favorite NOsoft channel hands down! Spreading love & positivity is what this world is missing.

      Yes Theory, you are awesome. Your videos are always uplifting; full of hope, love, and encouragement. I cried over all this video. I haven´t subscribed to any youtube channel in years, but you worth it. You are a glass of water on the desert (this vast space called youtube).

    My mom has terminal cancer, too. It's a weird situation and I am really thankful for you guys making this video and sharing the touching story of Xavier. We should all pursue happiness in life before it's over. Think about your priorities and think about the unimportant things we spend so much time on. Much love to y'all! Stay positive

    Usually when I watch something sad, it doesn't make me cry. But this was definitely the tear jerker. My true condolences to Xavier's family.

      @E Squared the gift box had "Seek discomfort" on it. But I think he already was in a really discomfortable state...

    You know what. It's disrespect to call this a "stranger". Change the title to "My friend's Last 3 Months to live" HE IS NOT A STRANGER. Like to sign the petition to change the title!!!!

    Much respect to Xavier this man's a warrior he proved the doctors wrong challenged life and lived 5 years longer than he was expected to. his an inspiration to me and to people suffering from diseases and depression If Xavier had the will power to keep fighting through all of what he has been through what excuse do we have to not do the same? Much love to the yes theory community and hope y'all are out there seeking discomfort

    Sometimes I think life is unfair because of things like this then in another perspective the lessons you get from this you can't learn any other way.

    This video is absolutely amazing... I can't describe how much it means to me to see such kindness in the world. My father battled with cancer for three years, he was a strong young man... all he wanted was to see his wife and family happy and healthy... a day after my birthday we heard that there was nothing more the doctors could do.. after fighting colon cancer bravely for 3 years it had spread to his bones... this was the fifth of november. a week before he died he still went to Belgium to get a second opinion.. not for himself, but for us, his children.. so that we would know that he/we did everything we could. He fought till the very end... He left us the second of December... This video hits close to home, even Xavier's hands look the way my father's hands did days before he died. Thank you Yes theory for this meaningful message. You guys make this world a little better with every video you make.


    Till next time, Xavier. NAMASTE!
