OHSU Doernbecher’s cancer team supports bill to restrict children’s use of tanning beds

The pediatric cancer team at OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital joins the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute in its support of House Bill 2896, which restricts children younger than 18 from using tanning devices, unless proof of a physician exemption is provided.

Read Dr. Brian Druker’s call to action on the 96,000 Square Miles blog and let us know your thoughts:

Our children deserve stronger protections from cancer-causing tanning devices.”

  1. Thank you for adding to the awareness and support of cancer. I’ve written two songs, one about cancer and one about going through trials and looking back on them. Reaching out for support and help, and the joy of having come up through affliction. Here are the links I hope you find them connecting, and possibly helpful.
