At Eastern Oregon Cancer Center, we believe that patients heal best when they are treated close to home, surrounded by the support of family and friends. For this reason, we paused to reflect mid-construction and asked the eastern Oregon community to share messages of hope and healing for all those who would one day receive treatment within our walls.
These inscriptions are offered with heartfelt inspiration to all who have been touched by cancer – patients, physicians, caregivers, and family members. The thoughts, prayers, poems and drawings reflect a wide range of emotions, as each cancer journey is personal and unique. Written in Stone, they inscribe the unfinished concrete walls of the treatment room and are permanently embedded in the physical structure of our facility of healing.
