Trying to get 1 million views before christmas

Zach Sobiech, of Lakeland, Minnesota, doesn't go far without his guitar in tow. Facing months to live, 17-year-old Zach is turning to music - writing and performing songs as a way to say goodbye to his friends and family.

Zach was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2009. Since his diagnosis, Zach has endured several surgeries and months of chemo. In May, 2012, the cancer spread to his pelvis and lungs. There are no known effective treatments left. As Zach fights to live, he remains the same joyful soul he has always been. He still smiles as brightly as he did before cancer - it just means more now.


MODS:
* Roth industries smog block offs
* Zero gravity smoked DB
* Shermoto shorty levers
* Scotts steering damper
* 06 shorty muffler conv.
* 520 chain conv. -1/+2
* Factory pro +4 rotor
* BMC race filter
* Dunlop Q2's
* Dynojet Pc3
* 12k h.i.d kit

Wow, the least I could do was watch. Quite a catchy tune... What a touching story. God bless you Zach...

RIP Richard Bishop. You're a great friend and someone I will never forget.

Viewed & shared, lost my mother to cancer. One day we'll hopefully have a legitimate cure.
