This is a video that an Austin, Texas, teen posted not long before he passed away from a heart attack.

Such a sad story :( It's gotten so much attention in the media, do you think that it makes people more aware about heart defects?

That's a good point. It wasn't a subject that was even on my radar until my cousin-in-law's daughter was diagnosed with a defect as a baby. Even then, we didn't live close by so we didn't see firsthand what they were going through.
