"If you're watching this and I'm not here": NY nonprofit Thru My Eyes helps dying make videos for the loved ones they are leaving behind.

"Leaving a farewell video isn't new — Michael Keaton did it in a 1993 movie called My Life — but it is evolving beyond the version in which a dying person talks to an unmanned camera on a tripod or spends hundreds of dollars for a videographer who also records weddings and bar mitzvahs. Thru My Eyes, based in Scarsdale, [New York], and Memories Live, of Milburn, New Jersey, are among the nonprofits filling a niche in which people with terminal diagnoses — usually cancer-stricken parents with young children — get emotional as well as technical support, for free." -- Jim Fitzgerald, Associated Press via the Deseret News
