A teen's dying wishDecember 10, 2012 @ 10:02 am (Updated: 10:05 am - 12/10/12 )
John's Be Kind, Be Strong, Be Funny When You Can was on a Minnesota teen's dying wish to have as many people as possible hear his story through his songs.
From YouTube: Zach Sobiech, of Lakeland, Minnesota, doesn't go far without his guitar in tow. Facing months to live, 17-year-old Zach is turning to music - writing and performing songs as a way to say goodbye to his friends and family.
Zach was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2009. Since his diagnosis, Zach has endured several surgeries and months of chemo. In May, 2012, the cancer spread to his pelvis and lungs. There are no known effective treatments left. As Zach fights to live, he remains the same joyful soul he has always been. He still smiles as brightly as he did before cancer - it just means more now.
