Of all the people I’ve met since I first visited CHOC Children’s almost 50 years ago, Ken Spicer is one of my favorites. After all, he is CHOC’s very first patient!
Ken and I go way back: He was first admitted to CHOC on Oct. 5, 1964 at age 12 because of a birth defect in his legs, and he remains a steadfast advocate CHOC almost 50 years later. Best of all, he and I are still friends.
In this video, Ken reflects on his experience at CHOC and how his time at Orange County’s only children’s hospital helped him build a bright future.
