Recently, I saw this video about a young man named Zach who did a beautiful job leaving his legacy after finding out that the terminal cancer he had only left him months to live. He turned to music. What a wonderful way to say goodbye.
What do you do? What do you say? How does it feel when you are told that you will not celebrate another birthday, another family holiday, or eat any more thanksgiving dinners? Personally, I was blessed to not ever hear the word "terminal," but I did think that at times because I was so very young when I was diagnosed with cancer (age 7). Yes, the doctors did tell my parents that without the radical surgeries I had, I would not make it from my age of 10 at the time to age 16, but I did not know this until I was an adult. How does one act? Zach leaves us with so much to think about and also with so many answers.

I have known many many people who told me that they “thought they were going to die” from the cancers they had. As a result of that thinking, we live life every day as if it may be our last. I am not saying that you should not be responsible or plan for your future or fight til the bitter end – but embrace life, embrace all you have, step out of the box just a little and most importantly, SMILE. Yes, smile every moment you can. If you are terminal, knowing your destiny, I suggest you do the same. If you want to be remembered, which you should, do something special as a gift to your loved ones. A video, a song, a diary, a scrap book. Share your life. And today, watch and share Zach's. You'll know why I ask this when you watch the video.
