Farewell speech by upbeat pancreatic cancer patient

February 19, 2008 | By | 2 Replies More

This speaker’s name is Randy Pausch. This video shows a farewell speech that Pausch originally gave to his students at Carnegie Mellon.

This video is well worth your eleven minutes, especially if you have far more than eleven minutes to live. One of Pausch’s closing lines: “If you live properly, your dreams will come to you.”

You can find an alternate site for this video here (he gave his speech a second time on Oprah).

For more information, here’s Randy Pausch’s homepage.
