My Buddy Kevin In Scotland Has Disappeared

Every day or two I see an automated message showing he’s gained or lost Twitter followers, but no Kevin. Creepy. For most pancreatic cancer patients, even Whipple graduates, the result is death — sooner, not later.

Kevin Lyon
I’ve met lots of people during my journey through pancreatic cancer. Kevin Lyon was one. Kevin lived in Edinburgh, Scotland. We met on Twitter.

Like me Kevin had gone through a Whipple and was doing well. And then he wasn’t.

We spoke last the first week in November. He’s disappeared since then.

Every day or two I see an automated message showing he’s gained or lost Twitter followers, but no Kevin. Creepy.

For most pancreatic cancer patients, even Whipple graduates, the result is death — sooner, not later. My outcome is rare. I am very lucky. I was hoping Kevin’s would be too.

In the fairy tale ending Kevin writes to say reports of his death are premature.

  1. I am sorry to hear that Kevin has disappeared. I hope that you will have your fairy tale ending…..or some sort of resolution to his whereabouts.

  2. Keep your chin up Geoff, with so many well wishers in your corner, you just have to be around for another 30 years. It’s just expected of good folks like you. All my best this holiday season to you and yours, for the 30 as well.

  3. Geoff,
    We’ll be praying for Kevin to re-appear and that he’ll be alright when he does, and hopefully there will be a logical explaination for his temporary hiatus.
    Keep us posted.

    1. Jay — I’m sad to say you’re wrong. The activity you see on his account is automated. This is the creepy part I mentioned in my blog. I’m afraid Kevin’s gone. It’s what we expected to happen, just not right now.

  4. We’re still praying for his safe return Geoff, I just can’t imagine what you’re going through. Like I said before, if you ever need to talk, I’m just a phone call away 860-593-7964.
