  1. Below is a very inspirational video- it is of a professor at Carnegie Mellon University. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and responded well to treatments, but has now had an extremely aggressive relapse and is not expected to live very long.

  4. That was very inspirational and moving. Thanks for posting the link, Roo.
  5. The main idea around this video is that life is short.
  6. He seems like a wonderful professor and a wonderful man. I hope when the end comes, it is as painless as possible for him. Why is it that such good people are taken so young? Makes me sad.
