Clouds by Zach Sobiech

zachZach’s Story

Zach Sobiech, 18-year-old teen from Stillwater, Minn., 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 passed away on May 20, 2013.

Zach bravely battled osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer, since his diagnosis at age 14. As the disease progressed, doctors had no more effective treatment options to offer him a cure, and Zach was told in May, 2012 that he likely had months to a year to live.

In the face of this earth shattering news, his response was to embrace every day with hope and joy. Zach surrounded himself with family and friends. And, he wrote songs for the ones he loved, which touched the hearts of millions worldwide. Writing goodbye letters weren’t Zach’s style, so he put his heart into song lyrics. He released two albums, performed alongside some of today’s best musicians and achieved a dream of helping raise money and awareness for osteosarcoma research.

His hit song “Clouds” and the accompanying music video on YouTube garnered worldwide attention after his story appeared on CNN and in newspapers, television and websites around the world. The “Clouds” YouTube video topped 2.5 million views and continues to climb. Zach, along with his band, A Firm Handshake, released their sophomore album, “Fix Me Up”, in February, 2013 which continues to gain popularity.

In May, 2013, SoulPancake, a media company, released a documentary about Zach Sobiech and his life for their series, My Last Days.
