Zach Sobiech was just a normal 14-year-old teenager living in Minnesota when his doctors diagnosed him with osteosarcoma - a rare form of bone cancer.
After a long fight with the cancer, doctors told Zach he only had a few months to live. Zach turned to music and recorded a song called Clouds, a song about dealing with death, which has since gone viral and has been viewed by over three million fans!
So it is with a heavy heart that we bear the sad news that Zach passed away on Monday morning. He was 18 years old.
Here's what the Children's Cancer Research Fund said in a statement:
We were very excited to hear that there were plans to rename a park in Brooklyn after the late Beastie Boy, Adam Yauch. Especially when we had heard that Adam learned to ride a bike there many years ago! It's so fitting for such a cool dude!
Well, we're happy to announce that the ceremony has been held, and that the park is now officially known as Adam Yauch Park!
On hand to speak was Adam's mom, and also his fellow band-mate Ad-Rock (who spoke in the video above!)!
If was a small and relaxed ceremony, and it's the perfect way to remember someone who had been taken too soon!
