MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A huge milestone has been reached for Zach Sobiech’s family.
Eighteen-year-old Zach Sobiech’s song “Clouds” became an Internet sensation shortly before he died of a rare form of bone cancer. As soon as “Clouds” went viral, Zach Sobiech announced he wanted to raise $1 million to help others battling the disease.
This week, the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund topped $1 million in donations.
His mother, Laura, says he would have been very proud.
“It’s such a humbling thing to be part of,” she said. “It is so big. You know, it’s crazy what we have been able to accomplish and what Zach was able to leave as a legacy.”
Zach died on May 20, 2013.
