At 17 years old, Zach Sobiech was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer that takes the lives of a large percentage of its childhood victims. Unfortunately Zach’s prognosis was that he had only a few months to live. He turned to music to say goodbye to his loved ones with the song “Clouds.”
Even in the face of death, Zach inspires those around him. Zach turned 18 years old this week and “continues his fight against cancer with a smile that can change the world!” (soulpancake)
Happy Birthday Zach! You are my inspiration!
As a warning you will need a big box of tissues for the video below. It is an amazing piece and I encourage you to watch all 20 minutes. My favorite part is the end…also the part that just lead to extreme waterworks. Thank you Zach for sharing your story, sharing your perspective, sharing your energy.
Here is the complete celebrity music video created for Zach.
“It’s really simple – try and make people happy.
As long as you learn that, you will make the world a better place.”
