One day I happened to catch a little bit of the Ellen show and she mentioned that she found this video of some celebrities who were singing a song that a terminal cancer patient wrote. I liked the song and thought it was great what they did for him and went about my day.
I was scrolling down Facebook reading posts when I happen to come across this post that one of my friends reposted. The post was about Zach Sobiech who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and it was terminal and it included a video to watch.
This young man was wise beyond his 17 years! How he handled his terminal diagnosis, not wanting it to change anything including how people treated him. He lived every day to the fullest with a smile on his face and a positive attitude. Zach passed away on May 20th, 2013, so please take a moment to watch Zach’s journey. It’s inspirational, touching, sad and so courageous that when his family looks back on everything in the next months or years to come they will have positive memories that they can cherish forever.
You never know what you’ve lost until you lose someone dear to your heart this way. I lost my dad to colorectal cancer far too early. It has been over five years now and I have gone through all the stages of grief. My father’s wanted everyone to treat him the same and those are the memories that I remember the most.
Please share Zach’s story. His family has requested that anyone who is interested in helping change the fate for future children like Zach donate to the research fund set up on his behalf or you can also buy his album on iTunes, with the proceeds going to the research fund.
