We were saddened to hear that Zach Sobiech passed away on Monday. Zach is a true inspiration to us and we wanted to share his story with you all.
At age 13, Zach was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Zach bravely fought his illness for years but last year, doctors who had run out of treatment options, told him he likely had a few months to a year to live. Zach, who had always loved music and was never far from his guitar, once again turned to music. Instead of writing letters he wrote songs, and his song “Clouds”– which was his own way of saying goodbye – became an instant Internet sensation and garnered worldwide attention after his story appeared in newspapers, on television and websites around the world.
In his memory, Sobiech’s family has started the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund, to enable further research into the cancer that has taken the teenager’s life. Learn more about his incredible story here and if you can, donate to the fund here.
