Zach Sobiech is a young man in my son Chris’ class at Stillwater Area High School in Minnesota. He is a senior and this past May he found out that he has only months left to live. I’m told that Zach has one of the most positive attitudes towards life that most of his friends have ever met. Instead of feeling sorry for himself, he is choosing to embrace the joy in each day.
Zach is a musician and recently wrote a song entitled, Clouds. He performed the song at Coffee House, a benefit concert at Stillwater High School to raise money so that Zach could enjoy his last months. He gave half of the money to cancer research!
Clouds went on YouTube on December 5, 2012, and in just 12 days it has received over 412,200 views. He is hoping to hit 1,000,000 views before he dies. Will you help him make it? Check out his inspiring song, and then answer the question, “What would you do if you had only months left to live?”
The song is also available on iTunes.
