With Months to Live, What Would You Do? (Video)

Zach Sobiech is a 17 year old diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. With only months to live, Zach turned to music to say goodbye. He passed away May 20, 2013–but left behind his legacy and his music. His tremendous efforts raised much-needed awareness and donations for osteosarcoma research. Listen to Zach’s message of hope, empathy and happiness–a message he spent his last months sharing with the world.
