Zach Sobiech was an American folk rock singer and songwriter who died from cancer in May 2013. At age 14, he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer that takes the lives of a large percent of its childhood victims. He was 18 years old when he passed away. With only a couple of months to live, Zach wanted to say a nice goodbye to the world. He recorded the song “Clouds”, which was about his battle with cancer, and released it as a YouTube video in December 2012. This beautiful song spread faster than his cancer and gained extensive media attention prior to his death. The song was a hit in the US, UK, Canada and France.
Before his death, Zach set up a charity – Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund at Children’s Cancer Research Fund. It was his dying wish to help kids with the support of his charity.
On this world cancer day, we bring you the message of love and hope that Zach delivered through this beautiful song, in which Zach and millions of the heavenly bound souls who left this world before their time because of cancer, continue to live. We want to spread this message of love and hope to everyone who are fighting a brave battle with cancer and a tribute to those not with us anymore.
