Zach Sobiech passed away on Monday, May 20 at the age of 18 -- but his inspirational message will live on through song. The Minnesota native learned last June that he only had months to live after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma at the age of 14, and decided to record the song "Clouds" as a farewell message to his family and friends.
"I want everyone to know, you don't have to find out you're dying to start living," Sobiech says in the video.
"My closure is being able to get my feelings into these songs so they can have something to remember me by or lean on when I'm gone," he explains of his album, Fix Me Up. "I want to be remembered as a kid who went down fighting, and didn't really lose."
