Survivor Spotlight: Jerry Lambert

Jerry Lambert, a UF Health Proton Therapy Institute alum patient, was recently featured in a story on Fox News Channel for his extraordinary years of service as a lifeguard. The 73-year-old native New Yorker has watched over swimmers at his local beach for 50 summers. He moved to Ocala, Florida, several years ago, but he said he hasn’t spent one summer in Florida in order to maintain his lifeguard duties.

When he was diagnosed with prostate cancer he considered his options and settled on proton therapy. He is five years post-proton therapy, has no sign of cancer and has no plans to slow down his active lifestyle.
