Most of us know Randy Pausch from his video lecture “Achieving Your Childhood Dreams”, taped at Carnegie Mellon as part of their “Last Lecture” series. His hope and optimism in light of a crushing diagnosis brought millions up short as they examined their lives through the lens of this great man at the end of his short life. What you may not know is that Randy was an e-Patient. He was engaged in his own healthcare to the very end and shared his journey freely with the world.

Randy Pausch, teacher, speaker, e-patient, and father dies at 47.
