Pausch and his wife, Jai, embraced during his lecture, when he called her up on stage to have the crowd sing "Happy Birthday" to her. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last summer, but just weeks before he was to give the lecture, he was told that the treatment he was receiving didn't work and he had only had months to live. In his book, Pausch writes: "Under the ruse of giving an academic lecture, I was trying to put myself in a bottle that would one day wash up on the beach for my children." (Randy Pausch)
