Like Steve Jobs, my father passed away recently because of complications after pancreatic cancer. If you want to learn more about this disease, I recommend checking out the Lustgarten Foundation, which is dedicated to its treatment, cure, and prevention.
I’m also going to jump on the bandwagon and share the Steve Jobs video that is making the rounds. In his commencement speech at Stanford University, he offers some wise insight about life and death. Also of note for readers here is the fact that he was adopted. Successful people—as I probably don’t need to tell you—come from all types of family structures. (As do unsuccessful ones; but I think we can eliminate family structure as a determining variable.)
