If all goes as planned, a green bracelet will help save the life of 18-year-old Gavin Jack.
“It kills me to know that he’s going through this right now,” said Kyli Oleson.

Oleson lives in Roseville and Jack 160 miles away in Soquel.
“It hurts, I know it hurts,” said Oleson.
The two have never met.
