Joan Smith Memorial Garden Dedication - September 23, 2016

On September 23, 2016 the Oncology Garden was renamed and dedicated as the Joan Smith Memorial Garden.


While the Oncology Garden actually began in 1993, it grew overgrown with weeds and lacked the attention required to maintain the garden and the various plant material it contained.

In 1999, Auxiliary Member Joan Smith led the Oncology Garden Renewal Project because of her interest in gardening as well as her concern with the state of the garden.

The garden project to this day is an ongoing one requiring weeding, planting, pruning and watering for years to come. It is hoped that future efforts will include planting vines on a bordering wall, creating a sitting area and the addition of more benches for patients to enjoy the outdoors. Also, it has been proposed to make this beautiful garden accessible to other patients outside of the oncology department.

If you have ever had the opportunity to visit the garden it is obvious that the garden renewal project has been a great success but the true success must be judged by how the project accomplished its goals to provide a sanctuary for cancer patients, to help raise the spirits of patients undergoing treatment and to provide a an attractive sight for patients looking out the windows of the chemotherapy room.

Up until her passing, after envisioning what the garden could look like and how it would impact the lives of so many, Joan still worked to maintain and beautify the garden.
