The Story Behind YOLT

On August 12, 2013, Gavin Class suffered an exertional heat stroke during football practice at Towson University. His body temperature reached an estimated 111 degrees. Upon arrival at the hospital Gavin was in a coma with significant organ failure. He was then transferred to The University of Maryland Medical Center Shock Trauma, where his heart stopped and he needed to be resuscitated. The doctors told his family “he is as close to dying without being dead.” After being stabilized, it was determined that he was in need of a liver transplant. He was put on a new MARS (Molecular Adsorbent Recirculating System) machine. A state-of-the-art rescue device for patients with hepatic failure.
