Randy Pausch’s Son – a Chip Off the Old Block

A couple of years ago, I was captivated (along with millions of others) with Professor Randy Pausch and his battle with pancreatic cancer.  He’s known to a lot of people as “The Last Lecture” guy. Sadly, Professor Pausch passed away, but not with leaving an indelible mark on everyone who heard him speak.  Proving that the apple does not fall far from the tree, his eight-year-old son has taken up the fight against pancreatic cancer.

Professor Randy Pausch’s Cancer Spreads

According to the WordPress stats a lot of you are still interested in Randy Pausch’s battle with cancer.  I somehow have become somewhat of a clearing house of Pausch information so I feel obligated to track his progress and treatment.  It’s not too much of a bother really because I was inspired by his courage as I’m sure many of you were. 

The latest news is not good.  He is reporting on his website the cancer has spread, and that he is currently recovering from kidney and heart failure.
