The 2009 Healing Partner honoree is Walt Spicer, Video

The 2009 Healing Partner honoree is Walt Spicer, a supportive husband and volunteer who helped design the Marin Cancer Institute.

Walt Spicer’s association with Marin General Hospital began in 1992 as the cancer center was being built. He was encouraged by the Marin General Hospital Foundation to direct gifts made to the hospital in memory of his late wife, Susie Spicer, to the new cancer care center. MGHF also suggested that Walt get involved in the project, which he did with a great passion. He joined the Building Committee and later, the Humanities Advisory Committer.

Through the design and building of the cancer center, Spicer assumed the “get it done” role. Having experienced firsthand what a cancer patient goes through, Spicer knew what was needed. Many creative ideas became a reality in the new cancer center, including the healing art displayed throughout the building, the healing and meditation gardens, the large backlit photo murals in the ceilings of the radiation therapy rooms, and the resource library. The original Susie Spicer Circle Library has evolved to the present Cancer Resource and Recovery Center.

That recent remodel of the cancer center, now called the Marin Cancer Institute, retained Spicer’s vision of a place to bring comfort to patients undergoing cancer treatment.
