When AJ Rice graduated from high school last year, he was asked to fill out a card asking him where he wanted to be in five, 10 and 20 years.

He never filled it out — he didn’t expect to be alive much longer anyway. His grandparents, who had raised him, had both died in the last few years. As a result, he started eating more and had become overweight. Eventually, it got to the point that he had severe sleep apnea and high blood pressure and was most likely diabetic.
