Randy Pausch, Pancreatic Cancer, Carnegie Mellon University & YouTube

[video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaD1TsjGR0w[/video]The power of video on the internet will never cease to amaze me. I had not heard anything about Randy Pausch until I was voting on video’s at YouTube 2007 Video Awards. I realize that I am a bit behind the curve on this one, as Randy mentions in the video to the left that there are over 6,000,000 people who have viewed his Last Lecture video which can be seen on YouTube.

The video included in this article is Randy’s testimony in front of Congress on March 13, 2008. Randy’s Last Lecture struck a cord with me because it is inline with the recent article I wrote titled How Are You Spending The Time You Have?

Isn’t it interesting that at times like these old proverbs ring especially true – that when the student is willing the master (teacher) appears. Perhaps, in a larger sense, pancreatic cancer is on its last leg.

On Randy’s site, he suggests that you support curing pancreatic cancer by supporting or getting involved with the Lustgarten foundation and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

As many of my subscribers know, I am a HUGE supporter of the March of Dimes – and after watching the work that Randy is doing in spite of the horrific disease which is killing his body but not succeeding in killing his Spirit, I find myself inspired to do my part to help – if you feel moved in your Spirit – please listen and do your part, no matter how large or small, whether you are lead to provide financial or moral support…

TOGETHER WE CAN HELP RANDY AND OTHERS AFFLICTED WITH PANCREATIC CANCER TO BEAT IT BACK SO IT WILL NO LONGER HAVE PURCHASE OVER ANY OTHER LIFE
