Pancreatic Cancer Patient Thriving Not Just Surviving During Cancer Treatment


Jon Sherbun had surgery for pancreatic cancer at the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center (UMGCC) in early 2010, and is now cancer-free. In this 5-minute video, he talks about some of the ways he managed his physical and mental health during treatment -- by continuing to run, having acupuncture for symptom relief, altering his diet and facing his feelings of sadness without getting "stuck" in them. Sherbun, who is a psychotherapist, worked with his oncology treatment team at the cancer center, with a goal of thriving, not just surviving, during his treatment.
