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 EEfrom 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.

Thank you for sharing Xaviers story, Xavier was and is still a warrior, he taught us to be strong and to fight and never give up, even though he is no longer with his Family and Friends in this world, he is still lives on in their hearts and minds. I lost my youngest Brother to Cancer (Pancreatic that spread to his liver and spleen) in 2006, I do not dwell on his passing but keep in my heart the courage in the face of death, he leaves behind the legacy of not death but how to live, when times are tough, I draw on that strength and courage I saw in him. From the time my Brother was diagnosed to the time he left this world it was 6 weeks, and I would cry when I saw him, and he would comfort me, and tell me it will be okay. He has never left me, he lives in my heart, Just as Xavier does in all whose lives he touched. To his Family and Friends I send Love and Light. ❤️🙏

I don’t mean to sound cold, but I’m glad that when he decided it was time to go, he was surrounded by the people he loved and that loved him; before all the 2020 craziness started. Such a strong individual! And like some on here mentioned, the mother/father were super strong too, taking care of their boy till the end. Always by his side. RIP Xavier.

May Xavier Rest In Peace I am literally crying while making this. When I was 11 years old my daily went on our first Christmas stay in Florida as I have family there. We were on a three stay journey through Florida at my dads sisters house than to my moms dads house than to my moms cousins house. While at my moms cousins house my dad fell ill and began to not feel well with his stomach hurting a lot. On the plane ride back home to New York he had very bad stomach cramps and we didn’t know why. Well when we got home and after a few days passed by my dad went to the clinic where he was then sent to the hospital. When my mom came home she said to us that he had Pancreatic Cancer. Both me and my 3 year older brother didn’t know what to think. Soon after he began Kemo therapy to start killing the cancer. Each month that passed by throughout 2019 though he just kept getting worse. On top of that he also had diabetes which made it harder. My mom brother and I took care of him and supported him for months doing our best. Then then day before Thanksgiving of 2019. We went to bed. When I woke up I heard commotion outside. People were bringing in food for Thanksgiving. Then my brother and I found out that in the night my dad passed away. He was only in the next room over. It is now May of 2021 and I still miss him very much. I am now 13 and hearing Xaviers story reminded me of my experience with my dad. I know how hard cancer is and it breaks my heart every time to hear someone lost the fight. I love you dad. 🥰🥰🥰 and I love you Xavier.

This entire thing is heartbreaking, but watching Xavier’s mom...? As a mom of three, I feel it in my bones. They way she looks as her son, the gratefulness that exudes from her pores, even the cooking for the group, watching on and just being content watching her baby be so happy and supported. My god. Love to all of you. ❤️❤️

Life is a hard thing to wrap your head around but livening is real the concept of it is tricky and yet we focus on death instead of life death what I think is the middle of your existence and after that you go into a dream till your called some where then you forget and wake up in a child body and it cycles enjoy life but except death for what it is have a good day all and goodnight to some.

Xavier's family is what fueled him. He was with family that care and love each other. They kept Xaviar home with them until the end. He was never alone. I'm sure that was a sacrifice for the family, but they wouldn't have it any other way.

This was such a beautiful inspirational love story. The world would be a much better place and we would be much better people if we would challenge ourselves to step out in faith so we can stand in the gap to change at least one person’s life. It was amazing and emotional to watch the friendship develop between you and Xavier. I know he was trying so hard to be brave but I think that dying at his young age scared him. Xavier really needed a friend and I’m so thankful that God chose you to fill that gap. He was the sweetest guy with a beautiful soul and in the end I found it bittersweet that his one last dying wish was granted when he passed away at 26. Rest In Peace Xavier.💙😭💙😭💙

This has helped me so much. Two of my kids fought cancer. My mom, aunt. Me, and auto immune, it’s been a battle, seem to survive for others. ( I don’t want them to suffer in more pain). Truly, when others reach out, family & friends support, the power of love truly gives suffering give more strength than any type of medicine!! ( even though we need help for pain.) y’all keep on keepin on being true rockstars!! Plus!! Music!! Such a healer also!! Xoxox

Here goes everything!!! Last night I received sum really bad news regarding my father My uncle called me too tell me hes been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer . prior too this he was diagnosed with liver cancer, with a mass of 13×8×7 Also with in this time he also ended up with covid n survived 2 weeks of covid A few years ago he was diagnosed with throat cancer n he conquered that and was said too be n remission however the drs messed up his surgery a bit and he can now only speak with the use of one of those hand held robotic sounding device When I was a young girl I never knew my daddyo! I begged my mum for years too allow me too meet him I dont remember much however i did meet up with him a few times periodically growing up Once when i was maybe around 6 years at a bus station for a quick visit then again. When i was 12 for saw him for a day n we left Then again when I was 16 I went too see him on my own in ny for the first time a few yrs later he moved too fl I moved too Florida for a few months when I was 21 and he came too meet his first 2 grandsons n see me that as well was just a few short hrs Then one day he moved here too maine for about a yr my dream come true really!!! However he ended up moving back too fl where he learned of his throat cancer N today he now lives n oneida NY at a rehabilitation center closer too his brother n family there I haven't seen him since 2011 and I'm losing my daddyo n I cant get too him While he lived here in maine on the top floor of the apartment building we live at n greenbush maine out n the sticks I genuinely took care of my dad and enjoyed every moment Cooking for him cleaning just hanging out n playing our guitars together I was up stairs with him alot he also has grandmal seizures so I would sit by him and make sure he was safe I never knew if he could hear me however I still talked with him through his seizures hoping he could trying too let him know hes not alone I'm right here then after he came out of it I'd sit with him 2am n comfort him cause it was always scary for him n he never remember any of it Three yrs ago I lost my husband of 17 yrs and have been struggling too get up on my feet since then ... So today I'm n a new relationship n trying too start our own business towing /hulling abandoned vehicles cleaning up our towns n giving people a bit of cash for sum vehicles that r just sitting there collecting rust in these days people r really struggling too pay thier Bill's us also being on that list in doing what we do people make a bit of money and we make a bit not much just bearly enough too pay insurance for our vehicle n to pay electric n little left over for food We help alot of people when we are up n running however we cant keep a vehicle running rn n my daddyo really needs me I struggle too get too him n a timely fashion my truck is stuck n 4 wheel drive so I cant make it from maine too ny and I'm scared of flying or traveling by bus and even if i were too put my fears aside too go by plane or bus i still dont have the money for any of this I'm a one daughter out of 5 children There of my sisters crystal Kathleen n Laura already live n NY I've only met them once b4 in my life My brother allen lives n Pennsylvania ( I grew up with him) and I live n maine with that being said My daddyo n Ny I have not seen in 10 years and have only met my siblings my uncles once we, most of us chat via fb messenger n it would be great if we could all get together sum how too show our support n love for him Too have all his children in one place at the same time has only happened one time back when I was 11/12, I am now 40 years old it would be a dream come true for my father if he could just see us all one more time and his grand kids a few of which hes never met I've never met my nieces either My life n circumstance have just not allowed me too really connect with my fathers side being in NY besides through fb messenger they are all I have left I lost my mum 7 yrs ago too a head on accident she left work early one day cause she was feeling I'll my mum never took a day off she worked non stop always filling In for people working double triple shifts bearly getting enough rest so I new if she was going home something was really wrong They drs r unsure however they think it was something n her head maybe a tumor/ blood clot she always fought migraines idk she never went too the drs until a month be 4 her accident the witnesses says it appearsed she passed out at the wheel n crossed the center line so I lost her n 2014 on thanks giving eve! I didn't have the money for an autopsy too find out how she died what happend why she passed out behind that wheel she was loved by many she gave her whole heart too taking care of the elderly she was like the female version of patch Adam's I always say I never did get too say good bye too her or have any last words I would truly love too see my father one last time they r doing testing in my father sometime next week too find out how far along his pancreatic cancer is

I thought this would be great to watch but turned it off after the second "f" word in under five minutes. In truth, I used to cuss like a trucker. Since I rid myself of the habit, I am finding it disgusting and unbearable to hear. Now I know the meaning of the word, "offensive". I'm sorry for ever having done it. I wish others would feel the same way now. Sorry!

This video was so emotional for me and brought back so many childhood memories of my grandpa, he too also battled bone cancer since I was in 3rd grade the doctors gave him a year to live, he passed away when I was in 7th grade. Xavier and my grandpa both represent the same thing. 🙏🏻 this video was truly beautiful and my blessings and heart goes out to Xavier and his family including Matt. Matt the connection that you had with them is a whole type of love that is unfathomable. I loved this video just as much as I love every one of yes theory and yes theory plus videos 😉🙏

I didn't watched this just once or twice but as many times as I can. Ever since this was uploaded more than a year ago, every time I get to watch this, I am always in tears. Always thankful for such content that makes us more human and humbled by every single blessings we received everyday. Xavier may have had suffered with an incurable illness but his Family and Yes Theory stood beside him till the very end. Matt in the other hand, (this is what i love about him) whenever he tells a story, you always tend to listen all through out the course of the video and the connection and friendship he built to all the people involved is so powerful. Let alone the friendship he had with Xavier. This video will always be in my Favorites and Watch Later to always reminds me that we should treasure every bit of moments we have with our family or friends and to all the people around us. Strangers or not. Thank you YES Fam. Hoping to watch more like this soon. God Bless! April 12, 2021 6:00pm Manila Time Ron Sampaga
