Zach Sobiech, made famous by his viral video "Clouds," in which he explains his struggle with bone cancer, passed away on Monday in the loving embrace of friends and family.

A statement released by the Children's Cancer Research Fund said, "With heavy hearts, we are saddened to share that Zach Sobiech passed away this morning. Zach was at home and at peace with those he loved most. Zach's life ended just as he lived, embraced by the love of his family, friends, grace and music."

At 14 years old, Zach was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, the most common type of bone cancer, especially in young people. Even after his doctors said there was nothing left for them to do, giving him only a couple of months to live back in May 2012, Zach refused to let his prognosis limit him.

The Stillwater, Minn. teen released "Clouds" as his way of expressing his ordeal coupled with his love for music. The YouTube video has received three million views and counting, including a spot on CNN among other worldwide media outlets.

Zach also pioneered the band A Firm Handshake along with band members Sammy Brown and Reed Redmond. The trio just released their second album "Fix Me Up" this past February.

A tribute to Zach's music and life is featured on The Office star Rainn Wilson's YouTube account SoulPancake. The video "My Last Days" features fellow celebrities Ed Helms, Jenna Fischer, Sarah Silverman, Bryan Cranston, The Lumineers, Jason Mraz, and Philip Phillips.

Zach is survived by his parents Rob and Laura, his siblings Alli, Sam, and Grace, and his girlfriend Amy Adamle. In lieu of flowers, the Sobiech family has requested all donations be forwarded to the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund.
