After being diagnosed with a rare form of terminal cancer at 14, Zach Sobiech turned to music to help him say goodbye to his family. In turn, he touched the hearts of millions, including many celebrities who came together to make a music video for his song “Clouds.” It features Jason Mraz, Rachel Bilson, Rainn Wilson Ed Helms and countless other famous faces. Posted on SoulPancake’s YouTube page, the video shows Zach in his final days with his family and his incredible resilience and bravery during his battle with osteosarcoma. Zach lost his battle with cancer on May 20 at just 17 years of age but his message will surely leave a lasting impression on everyone he touched through his music.
“You don’t have to find out you’re dying to start living” is the message Zach opens with and is one everyone should remember.
