Dr. Steven Lewis, Cancer Survivor

Dr. Steven LewisDr. Steven Lewis received a Ph.D. in exercise physiology from Stamford University in 1977 and is a visiting professor of clinical biomedical science in the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.

He was in superb life-long health, until he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a disease with a survival rate of only 5%. In spite of this, Steven and his wife struggled to achieve and deliberately maintain an extremely positive attitude. This choice started a “ripple effect” that created an exceptionally caring and upbeat community of family, relatives and friends and enabled this community to return even more positive energy to Steven.Dr. Steven Lewis

The story became even more intense when Steven endured a second bout of pancreatic cancer that metastasized to his liver. Surviving a second bout of pancreatic cancer is so rare that no statistics are kept. Today, Steven is cancer free, in excellent health and works out strenuously. Virtually all of us, at some point, will experience extreme life difficulties involving circumstances such as severe illness, injuries, accidents, divorce or natural disasters.

A positive attitude can help us think clearly, be solution oriented and ultimately prevail. Whether Steven physically survived or not, an attitude of complaint and negativity would have shattered his emotional life and that of his family. Steven’s choice was to stay positive and upbeat in spite of his situation. What would you have done?
