Nice video, but it makes me appreciate Alex Trebek's wording in his message after Cindy's last game. "Getting on Jeopardy was the fulfillment of a life-long ambition for Cindy."
I've noticed that the news programs, including the one above, instead use "life-long dream", which strikes me as vaguely insulting, reducing a person's life and desires to nothing more than making it on to a game show. I'm sure Cindy had many accomplishments during her life, and many dreams outside of an ambition to be a contestant on a really cool game show.

The tribute on the J! web page says: "When Cindy was in the hospital, Jeopardy! sent her advance copies of her first three episodes, so she and her family were able to watch her realize a lifelong dream of competing on the show."
Why only three episodes?
