Michael Gustafson was nearing his 15th birthday when we recorded this video in a restaurant parking lot. By this point, Michael already knew he wasn’t going to beat brain cancer for himself.

But he could beat it for someone else.

“I’m going to give my life up in order to see if we can find a cure,” Michael says in this video. It was his idea to be a tissue donor. Michael called it his “master plan.”

Now, four years on, we’re realizing just how right he was.
