Being Hal Ashby

Nick Dawson

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses Hal Ashby's battle with cancer of the pancreas. Ashby's doctors recommended an aggressive treatment beginning with surgery, but he refused. When he returned home, Ashby's blood clots made him suffer a stroke that caused hemisphere damage. He was taken care of Lynn Griffis who appointed herself as live-in nurse and girlfriend. She recommended New Age methods and alternative methods but nothing worked and Ashby became visibly more ill. He died on December 27, 1988.

Keywords:   Hal Ashby, cancer, pancreas, blood clots, stroke, Lynn Griffis
