Zach Sobiech is diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer.  Currently there are no known effective treatments left for him. He has been told he only has months to live. He has turned to music - writing and performing songs as a way to say goodbye to his friends and family. One of his wishes before he passes is to get a million views on the song he wrote. If we all can pass the word on or post this link up in your own journals of this song and video and make this wish come true for him.

Please visit his video at this link.…

Thanks so much,
