Dying Teen Says Goodbye to Family & Friends Through Incredible Song (VIDEO)

teen songAfter experiencing pain in his hip after going for a jog, 14-year-old Zach Sobiech did what most teens do, and saw a physical therapist for treatment. But then, the pain kept getting worse, so he went in for more extensive tests and found out that he had a rare form of bone cancer. Now, at 17, Zach's had many rounds of surgery and chemotherapy, but devastatingly, nothing's helped destroy his Osteosarcoma.

Doctors estimate that he only has a few months to live, but Zack's decided to embrace every day with hope and joy. He's funneled that outlook into music and has written, performed, and recorded a tune called "Clouds", which is his goodbye song to family and friends.

My favorite verse:

We could go up, up, up
And take that little ride
And sit there holding hands
And everything would be just right
And maybe someday I'll see you again
We'll float up in the clouds and we'll never see the end.

You can donate to the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund -- donations of $20 or more receive a copy of Zach's album, which includes "Clouds."

Please help Zack, and other kids with his bone cancer, fight the good fight.

A friend of mine since kindergarten died of stomach cancer two years ago on jauary 12th; a month after his birthday. His birthday is tomorrow and ive done nothing but think about how im going to honor him. It's really comforting to see this, because my friend Craig had the same positive upbeat attitude that Zach does even though his life is slowly ending. God bless you Zach youre in my prayers. ♡ rest easy Craig&happy 20th birthday! I miss you:(

I am so sick of reading these devastating Cancer stories they need to find a cure to kill this stuff. I have lost several family members already to cancer. When i see a young man like this dying it makes me sick, it makes me cry and it makes me dream. Its beyond bravery that he can hold his head up and feel happy when hes at the end of his life,  dont know if i could do it!       GOD BLESS YOU ZACH!
