Meet 18 year old Zach Sobiech, courageous fighter and incredibly gifted guitarist and song writer. Zach has been battling osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer, since he was diagnosed at age 14. Zach has impacted the lives of so many through his love, life and music. Zach’s emotional song “Clouds” has touched millions of supporters, including celebrities and musicians who created their own rendition of “Clouds” as a way to pay tribute to Zach. In a documentary Zach did with SoulPancake called My Last Days, Zach shares his feelings about being told he is fighting terminal cancer, “My name is Zach Sobiech. I’m 17 years old and I have osteosarcoma. I’ve been told I have a few months to live. But I still have a lot of work to do. I want everyone to know, you don’t have to find out you are dying, to start living”
Zach has been using his time, talent and voice to raise awareness for childhood cancers and research for osteosarcoma. Zach’s goal is to ensure that other kids diagnosed with cancer have a better chance for a cure. Through the Children’s Cancer Research Fund, Zach and his family have launched the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund to help fund groundbreaking research for childhood cancers. In his documentary, Zach says that the best thing about living is being able to help others and says that he wants to be remembered as “the kid who went down fighting and didn’t really lose”. Zach, we Never Ever Give Up for you. If you would like to support Zach and his family, please visit.
