Ben Breedlove was born on August 8th, 1993. Their happiest day turned into a gloomy one when they were informed that their baby Ben had a heart defect called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. This condition causes the heart muscle to thicken causing other serious issues resulting in cardiac arrest.
His parents Sean and Deanne raised him with caution along with his younger brother and older sister. Ben regretted that he could not play games that his friends play but that did not stop him from being an adventurer. He was upbeat, active and very sociable.
Over the course of his life, he had three cardiac arrests. One at the age of four, where he told his mom that there was a bright light shining above him but hi mom did not see it. He went into cardiac arrest in 2010 in his school while switching classes.
