Adventist Health Portland’s cancer care services offer more than advanced cancer treatment technologies and the best treatments available for your specific type of cancer. We believe you deserve cancer care as unique as you are, delivered close to home right here in Portland. We care about you as a whole person — body, mind and spirit — and provide compassion combined with medical excellence through every step of your cancer treatment. Our caring and dedicated team of cancer care specialists includes surgeons, radiologists and interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, hospitalists and pathologists. Our cancer care nurse navigator helps to coordinate your care with other team members as well, including registered nurses specially certified in cancer care, social workers, oncology dieticians and physical therapists. We also work with specialty oncologists at both OHSU’s Knight Cancer Institute and Compass Oncology in Portland to bring you the broadest range of evidence-based cancer care. Through our partnerships, we are able to provide personalized care for all major cancers right here on our southeast Portland campus. Adventist Health’s cancer care team is here for you whether you are newly diagnosed with cancer, are a cancer survivor, have concerns about a follow-up plan, or care about someone who has or has had cancer. We combine the latest technology with compassionate whole-person care to offer you the best opportunity for cancer-free living.
“I’m Dorothea Braxton, Cancer Nurse Navigator and I am here to support you as you undergo treatment for cancer. I work with our doctors and staff, as well as with the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute team, to help you more easily “navigate” your cancer journey. There is never a charge for this service. I am here for one purpose only: to provide information and support…as much or as little as you request. My goal is to help you feel confident and in control of your life during what can be a challenging time. I consider it an honor to serve you.”
Donations are always appreciated, but there are lots of great ways to get involved.
