"Clouds," a song by 17-year-old osteosarcoma patient Zach Sobiech

Lakeland, Minnesota native Zach Sobiech has advanced-stage osteosarcoma (bone cancer), with no known remaining treatment options.

"Facing months to live, 17-year-old Zach is turning to music," according to the notes accompanying this YouTube video, "writing and performing songs as a way to say goodbye to his friends and family".

One of those songs is "Clouds."

Zach's family founded the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund to "fund research for the cancer that is taking his life, in hopes that kids diagnosed tomorrow will have a better chance for a cure."

    There is a radiopharmaceutical developed by Isotherapeutics specifically targeting bone cancer.  The medication is transported selectively to the cancerous bone, and the rest is excreted.  Clinical testing on terminal cancer patients cured 30-40% of the patients and 90% of the patients became pain-free.  This allowed the patients to lead a normal life until they expired from the cancer.
