Kristy Lyon

Department of Rehabilitation Patient Kristy Lyon

In January 2011, Kristy Lyon was diagnosed with a brain tumor. A resulting surgery led to a life-altering stroke that caused the loss of ability to use her left side, vision deficits and cognitive impairment. Kristy was suddenly unable to perform basic tasks.

After a four week stay in the rehabilitation unit, Kristy returned to her husband and family. In honor of Kristy's extraordinary determination and perseverance, she was honored and inducted into The University of Kansas Health System Rehabilitation Hall of Fame.
