THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –Thomasville's new oncology center is adding an important new staff member.

Officials created the "cancer navigator" position after a patient, Debbie Beeson, told them it would be nice to have someone walk her through the entire cancer treatment program.

Archbold hired Beeson, a four-year breast cancer survivor, to be their first cancer navigator.

"There's nothing in life like someone who's walked the same road as you have," says Beeson. "And that's always helpful. And anything that we do, we're not really experts until we've done it ourselves."

Beeson is already helping patients navigate through their treatment programs.

Archbold's new Lewis Hall Singletary Oncology Center will begin treating patients Monday.

They hope to add more navigators to cover different types of cancer.
