ROSEBURG, Ore. – The Community Cancer Center in Roseburg started offering telehealth visits months ago, but a lot of patients still have to come in for treatments.

Telehealth visits help the center provide care to high-risk cancer patients in a safe environment.

For those that need to visit, Executive Director Tammy Turner said they continue to take extra precautions. They are thoroughly cleaning each room between patients and wiping down every surface that may have been touched.

And now, they’re allowing patients to bring a visitor along.

“Initially we started with no visitors, but now we’re allowing at least one member with them,” Turner said. “It’s important for the cancer patient to have their support system. A lot of them really need that when they’re going through cancer treatment.”

KEZI 9 Checks In is a monthly reminder for women to do a self-breast exam to check for lumps or changes. You can sign up here.
