Now known as the CAMC Cancer Center – Beckley, the Carl Larson Cancer Center, initially established as "MDRT, Inc." in 1984, resulted from collaborative efforts by eight local physicians, breaking ground in November 1985 and becoming fully operational on November 10, 1986. The facility aimed to provide cutting-edge cancer treatment to residents of Raleigh and adjacent counties in Central and Southern West Virginia.
The center integrates diagnostic, treatment and family support services under one roof, emphasizing the goal of offering comprehensive cancer care close to home. Renamed in 2014 to honor Dr. Carl S. Larson, an original founding physician, the center excels in medical and radiation oncology, offering services such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, CT scanning, mammography and laboratory testing.

Next Meeting: February 20, 2024 @ 5:00pm In the Lobby
People are able to talk with other folks who are like themselves - people who truly understand what they're going through and can share the type of practical insights that can only come from firsthand experience.
It creates a space where the good and the bad can be shared within a supportive community.
No judging and no criticizing.
No trying to “fix” other people’s problems for them. (We share what worked for us, not what others should do.)
No divulging outside the group what’s shared in the group (respect confidentiality).
No using names if you share anything “bad” about a doctor, hospital, or anyone else.
