Family First

Tiffany first noticed a pain in her back and didn’t think much of it. She thought maybe it was a pinched nerve. After an MRI, she discovered it was something much more. Tiffany was diagnosed with a rare form of lung cancer, a stage 3 Pancoast tumor.

The Healing Bond

Time was essential. Her team quickly came up with a treatment plan that involved surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Healing was not just about herself, it was about her family. When Tiffany met Dr. Robinson, a Moffitt Thoracic Surgeon she made a lasting mark on him. He will never forget the strength he saw in her.

The Light Within

Tiffany’s bright personality and fight to be there for her family brought her through. Robinson says he saw her through a host of tough treatments and he recalls being impressed by her “personality, how she can go through all of this and maintain her composure, her humor, her enthusiasm and courage.”  Tiffany says that she has a “really special place in {her} heart for Dr. Robinson.” She says that he was invested and cared about her as an individual and her kids’ future- so she can be there for them.
