Awesome motivational video about professor who is going to die soon and gives his last lecture to his students. Some good life lessons here.

That man is incredible! My mom died from the same disease he's got. He's a walking miracle. To at least have the chance to fight it. We knew for about 3 weeks that she had it before she died.:(

Very fast moving and very painful. My best friends father died from it (prolonged and painful) and later my friend was able to council another friend who had it also. The advice "Don't treat it, the pain prolongment isn't worth it." That person died 3 weeks later, but did have a good three weeks. Thanks for the post, looks like a lot of people are viewing. I will make sure my 10 y/o watches it.

Amazing guy! I'm glad he didn't just slump into a hole of self pity.
Reminds me of Morrie Schwartz.

Great lecture. I think a lot of people could learn from the life's lessons from this video. Has anyone seen the original? I would like to show it to the students at my school.

Tuesdays with Morrie, great read.

This one is good too.

I wonder how many of us will take it to heart and live it??

I'm so sorry to hear of his passing.....
I watched his lecture and it was very inspirational to say the least. I tried to keep up with his website to see his progress and how he was doing but life in general just got too busy to keep up. I'm sure students who had Dr. Pausch as a professor will always remember him and was very inspirational on many peoples lives. He will always be remembered by all...
