We know the journey ahead can seem overwhelming. We do our best to ease your anxiety every time you come to our office. Our nurses make sure you’re comfortable, help you manage your symptoms and explain your treatment options.

Marylou Ehret, RN, Director of Nursing

Someone once asked me “what made you want to become a nurse?” My answer was that I like to make people feel safe. I’ve always felt that as a nurse, it has been a real privilege to care for oncology patients during perhaps one of the most vulnerable times of their lives. This philosophy is the cornerstone of the physicians, nurses, and staff at Marin Cancer Care. I am proud to work with a such dedicated team!

I want my patients to know that they always come first. Nursing, for me, was the end product of exceptional training, mentoring, tutoring, kind nudging and loving support through medicine. I have worked as an EMT, home care assistant, medical assistant, phlebotomist, EKG technician, radiation ambulatory care assistant, Registered Nurse and Oncology Certified Nurse. Every patient is unique and different, offering an opportunity to provide the most up-to-date health and wellness teaching available. Before I enter the doors at Marin Cancer Care for my shift, I repeat to myself, Let me dedicate my life today to the care of those who come my way. Let me touch each one with a healing hand and the gentle art for which I stand. And then tonight when the day is done, let me rest in peace if I’ve helped just one.

Marin Cancer Care is a special place. It’s a place to come for answers, for direction and for hope. That’s why I love working here. It is a place filled with hope. We meet people at a vulnerable, scary time and wrap them in care and compassion. It is an incredible honor and privilege to care for our patients, to be part of their journey and help them navigate through so many unknowns.

Marin Cancer Care is my one day a week job after retiring from 35 years at UCSF. It’ hard to believe I’ve surpassed 44 years as an R.N.

I am honored to have worked her for over 4 years. I have also been a patient here for over 6 years. It is such a pleasure to join this wonderful group of caregivers.

Humor has been an ally to me my whole life, and I invite its expression in my practice.
