Zach Sobiech (Photo: Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund)"When faced with months to live, how do you say goodbye?" That's the question posed by 17-year-old cancer victim Zach Sobiech, who wrote a viral hit song, "Clouds," as his answer. The tune touched the hearts of many, including a slew of celebrities who have filmed their own take on "Clouds" to raise awareness and research funds in Sobiech's honor.
The idea was spearheaded by "The Office" star Rainn Wilson, who gathered up friends from the worlds of music and acting to pay tribute to Sobiech, who is fighting osteosarcoma--a rare form of bone cancer that is particularly aggressive and deadly.
It's no surprise that Sobiech's song has affected everyone from civilians to celebs: It's hard to keep a dry eye when listening to the lyrics, which include such quiet but moving sentiments as "Be ready to live and it'll be ripped right out of my hands," "If only I had a little bit more time with you," and the chorus "We'll go up, up, up/But I'll fly a little higher/We'll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer."Read More »from Celebrities Honor Young Cancer Patient by Covering Viral Hit “Clouds”
