Zach Sobiech, who fought bone cancer since his osteosarcoma diagnosis at 14, succumbed to the disease after a long battle. He died at age 18.
The Children’s Cancer Research Fund reported on its website:
“Zach was at home and at peace with those he loved most. Zach’s life ended just as he lived, embraced by the love of his family, friends, grace and music.”
Zach wrote, recorded and released “Clouds,” a song about facing death, on YouTube in December; it’s been viewed at least three million times since.
