Zach Sobiech Leaves Legacy of Love, Music, and Support for Bone Cancer Patients

Follow

The story of Zach Sobiech is as inspiring as it is tragic. Zach was just 14 when he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, the most common form of bone cancer in children. 

 

Zach Sobiech passed away on May 21st; however, the news of his death has been eclipsed by a flood of tributes to his inspirational life.  He devoted his final months to music, and to raise awareness for osteosarcoma. His single, 'clouds' became a web sensation, eventually being covered by celebrities in an effort to reach a wider audience.  

 

When asked about his outlook on life, he responded "It's really simple actually, just try and make people happy...As long as you learn (that) you're going to make the world a better place."

 

Zach and his family encourage people inspired by his life to make a donation to the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma research fund, or to buy his album on iTunes, where all of the proceeds will go towards fighting the disease. His hit single, "clouds" is currently #1 on iTunes.
