(CNN) -- Zach Sobiech is dying with grace, love, joy and optimism -- the kind that somehow makes us all feel more alive.
When he was 14, Zach was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer that mostly strikes children. His prognosis wasn't great. Last May, with no more treatment options, he was given just a year to live.
Zach turned 18 on Friday. On Saturday he went to prom with his girl, Amy. His high school class graduates next month.
Zach began writing music after his cancer was diagnosed. His mom, Laura, was cleaning the family room downstairs last year when she found a folded-up piece of paper. She unfolded it to make sure it wasn't a homework assignment.
"I read through it and then I realized what I was reading," she says.
It was his first song, "Clouds." Zach wrote it for himself and his family. He has since written many more.
"I fell down, down, down into this dark and lonely hole," he sings at the beginning of the song.
His voice is beautiful, mellow -- kind of reminiscent of Jack Johnson's.

When Zach's song was posted to YouTube it quickly went viral, getting more than 2.6 million page views.
 

(CBS News) -- Zach Sobiech is a 17-year-old boy with a rare and deadly form of bone cancer called osteosarcoma. But instead of allowing this diagnosis to overwhelm him, he's instead using it as an opportunity to inspire others and raise awareness through his music. And some celebrities want to help him do so. See the beautiful collaboration in action in the video below.

The truly uplifting work featuring a multitude of celebrities (Brian Cranston, Sarah Silverman, Ashley Tisdale, Colbie Caillat, Chris Pratt, Anna Faris, Jason Mraz, Sara Bareilles, Andy Grammer, Angela Kinsey, Jenna Elfman, Jack McBrayer, Jenna Fischer, The Lumineers... and that's only half of the list!) for Zach's song "Clouds" was posted by Soul Pancake who write:

Given only months to live, Zach turned to music to say goodbye. His song "Clouds" spread, and soon, Zach's message was heard across the country. We wanted to help Zach spread his message, and bring awareness to increase support for finding a cure. So, we asked our friends to help out...they did.

Lyrics: Clouds

Well I fell down, down, down
Into this dark and lonely hole
There was no one there to care about me anymore
And I needed a way to climb and grab a hold of the edge
You were sitting there holding a rope
And well go up, up, up
But Ill fly a little higher
Well go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear
It wont be long now, it wont be long now
When I get back on land
Well Ill never get my chance
Be ready to live and itll be ripped right out of my hands
Maybe someday well take a little ride
Well go up, up, up and everything will be just fine
And well go up, up, up
But Ill fly a little higher
Well go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear
It wont be long now, it wont be long now
If only I had a little bit more time
If only I had a little bit more time with you
We could go up, up, up
And take that little ride
And sit there holding hands
And everything would be just right
And maybe someday Ill see you again
Well float up in the clouds and well never see the end
And well go up, up, up
But Ill fly a little higher
Well go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear
It wont be long now, it wont be long now
