Dr. Randy Pausch

Scary and inspirational. We’re all going to leave little tombstones by the side of the trail at some point; Randy’s leaving Machu Pichu. It’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. More on that later.

Randy Pausch’s “Final Lecture”

Regardless how old I am, if I can look back and make a checklist like that…

    Hello Randy,
    When I saw just the end of the Good Morning show that you were on, I was compelled to read your whole story. I’m so thrilled that you are experiencing a resurgence to better health at this time and want you to know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Why, since I had never heard of you before that show, would I have such a keen interest. I just lost my hushand on July 31, 2007 from pancreatic cancer.

    Diagnosed October 2006, too late to attempt surgical removal of the tumor, we had nine months always hoping and praying for more time. All too soon, his body succumbed to this tragic disease that I hear more and more of every day. We did have wonderful support from family, friends, church members, doctors, nurses and Hospice of the Comforter.

    You have accomplished so much in your short life, your attitude is fastastic as was my husbands. Just impress upon all of your dear family members and friends how important they are to you and I thank you for telling your story and keeping us informed of your contining fight. I’m praying that you have many more wonderful days with your precious ones.

    Dear Randy,

    Saw you on the Oprah show today (10/22). You are truly a remarkable person. I pray for your continued good health. Have you heard about Ambrotose (comes from Coppell, Texas)- the manufacturer is Mannatech,Inc. I know there are reports of people using it with cancer and it has put them into remission and removed tumors permanently. Your children are extremely lucky to have such a wonderful dad and your wife such a loving man. We will pray for you. God Bless you always. Please don’t give up. There are miracles every day.

    Dear Randy, I have never responded to anything on the net before. However, I feel that I need to let you know that I have never been so emotionally moved as I was after seeing you and hearing your story on Oprah’s show. I can’t possibly understand what you are experiencing but I could feel your pain as well as your strength as I watched and listened to your conversations with Oprah and Dr. Oz. Your “lecture” touched my heart and soul. Your wife and children are lucky to have you in their lives. Your strength, wit, kindness, achievements, faith, and hope inspire me to have more faith and hope with my own challenges. You are in my prayers and, I also have a strong belief in miracles. God Bless!!!

    Note: the above comments made me feel weird but I would have felt weirder deleting them.
