Zach Sobiech is a 17 year old diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer that takes the lives of a large percentage of its childhood victims. Given only months to live, Zach turned to music to say goodbye to those he loved. Even in the face of death, Zach continues to inspire those around him, showing through his daily actions that the secret to life is to live in the service of others and simply make people happy.

Zach turned 18 years old today and continues his fight against cancer with a smile that can change the world. Happy Birthday Zach! You are always in our thoughts!

    Zach died on May 20, 2013. Probably the most emotional video I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Definitely worth watching...

    “you don’t have to find out you’re dying to start living.” One youtube comment said “like a real life Augustus Waters.”
