Dr. Randy Pausch's last lecture quickly became an international phenomenon. Dr. Pausch was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in September 2006. He got better and then much worse and in August 2007 he was given a terminal diagnosis and left with only three to six months to live. He gave his lecture "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" to a fascinated and fully entertained crowd of over 450 at Carnegie Mellon University. The world watched as Dr. Pausch ruminated on his own childhood dreams and gave us a lesson on how to enable the dreams of others. Dr. Randy Pausch died on July 25, 2008.
