At age 14, Zach Sobiech was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a bone cancer which mostly strikes children. In May 2012, Zach’s doctors informed him that he had up to a year to live.
Upon his diagnosis of terminal cancer, Zach turned to music in a big way – writing and performing songs as a way to say goodbye, at first to his friends and family, and then to the world when millions who became affected by Zach’s heartfelt lyrics and irresistible positivity in the face of adversity.
Zach recorded the song “Clouds” about his battle with cancer.
Zach died on May 20, 2013 of complications from osteosarcoma, at his home in Lakeland, Minnesota, seventeen days after his 18th birthday.
Prior to his death, Zach released “Clouds” as a YouTube video in December 2012. It went viral, surpassing 3 million views at the time of his death in May 2013. Around 30 stars had begun releasing their individual and joint tribute versions of his hit song “Clouds”. Justin Baldoni also directed a short documentary about Sobiech, titled My Last Days.
I STRONGLY encourage you to watch Zach’s personal video about his life. ——————————————————————————— “You don't have to find out you're dying to start living.”
- Zach Sobiech “I want to be remembered as a kid who went down fighting, and didn’t really lose.”
