In Memory of Zach Sobiech
The Life of Zach Sobiech
Stillwater, MN - Osteosarcoma is a rare bone cancer that often affects children. Zach Sobiech was 14 when he received his diagnosis.
By June of 2012, at the age of 17, Zach Sobiech had been told he had less than a year to live.
But, instead of cowering in the corner waiting for his last day, like most of us would, Zach chose to turn to music to get through his ordeal. He picked up his guitar and ended up with a melody that has had over 3 million views.
"Clouds" took the internet by storm and I doubt even Zach expected it would be an inspiration to so many people.
On May 20th, just a couple of weeks following his 18th birthday, Zach Sobiech lost his battle to Osteosarcoma but not before touching millions of people's lives and leaving a legacy that will outlive us all.
Thank you Zach

Zach Sobiech was never far from his friends, and his guitar. Upon his diagnosis of terminal cancer, Zach turned to music in a big way - writing and performing songs as a way to say goodbye to his friends and family.
Zach Sobiech leaves behind a caring and loving family; his parents Rob and Laura Sobiech, siblings, Alli, Sam and Grace.
He also leaves behind his loving and very supportive girlfriend, Amy Adamle, that in his own words, "he will love forever."
He will be missed by the many other family members and friends that stood by Zach until the very end.
