Ben Breedlove left a legacy of strength and courage when he died on Christmas day 2011. The 17-year-old, who recorded his belief in an afterlife on YouTube just a week before dying of a heart attack, is now recognized as inspiring people around the world with his self-produced videos, his online memorial service and his message of hope still alive.
