CNN's "Extraordinary People": teen musician Zach Sobiech

CNN, on Saturday December 28, 2013, aired various segments of “Extraordinary People”, and one of these was Zach Sobiech.  He was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at age 14.  The cancer became aggressive, and he and the family decided on less treatment and more quality of life. 

Zach wrote many songs for guitar, piano and xylophone and other instruments.  One of them was called “Clouds.”

The family made a 22 minute short film “My Last Days: Meet Zach Sobiech”.

The family apparently lives in Minnesota, and the treatments were at the University of Minnesota hospital (East Bank, probably), where I had my own hip fracture repaired in early 1998.
