Podcaster and author PG Holyfield (of "Murder at Avedon Hill"), a widely respected and much-loved figure, is, quite suddenly and quite quickly, dying of cancer.
He has experienced extensive organ failure and his remaining lifespan is measured in "days and weeks." His friends are fundraising on a Gofundme campaign for money to help him finish his days in as much comfort and peace as can be mustered.
Sadly, communication is already very difficult for him, so if you have called, texted, emailed, PM’d, or reached out in any other way in the last few weeks and haven’t heard back, this is why. It’s not because he doesn’t want to, it’s that he cannot. Please take no offense.
Organ failure and the pain meds have made it hard to communicate as clearly as we’re all used to. He has been focusing on rest and nutrition to fight this battle, and now we focus on time. The brief time for PG to experience the width and breadth of all of the lives he has touched.
As ever, Patrick has his special lady friend Kim (as he likes to introduce her) as well as family and close friends helping him get through this. If you would like to see him, please contact Vivid Muse immediately to try and work out details. The sooner, the better, as we’re told.
If you would like to send a brief video or audio greeting, or an email message (all to firstname.lastname@example.org) we will make sure he hears and sees it. If not video, please include a picture we can show as we read it to him. These messages of support and hearing how much he has meant to people gives a huge lift.
