Zach’s Story

KS95 first introduced you to Zach Sobiech, a 17-year-old from Stillwater at the KS95 for Kids Radiothon in December 2012. Zach bravely battled osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer, since his diagnosis at age 14.

Through his battle, Zach turned to music, writing and performing songs as a way to say goodbye to his friends and family. When Zach passed away on May 20, 2013, his fans pushed his song “Clouds” up to No. 1 on iTunes, Spotify and the Billboard charts, bringing worldwide attention to Zach’s irresistible positivity in the face of adversity. In May 2013, SoulPancake, a media company, released a documentary about Zach Sobiech and his life for their series, My Last Days.
