Timmy's Story

No one wants to hear the news that they have cancer. A diagnosis of stage four means that the cancer has spread to other organs or parts of the body, significantly complicating treatment.  

For Timmy, an oncology patient at Dignity Health Sequoia Hospital, her diagnosis meant an emotionally and physically draining regimen of frequent visits to the hospital for treatment.  

It’s kind of scary walking into a hospital, however being on a first name basis with so many of the staff and employees made it more comforting for me. It puts you so at ease. They became like family to me,” recalls Timmy.  “Just knowing that I was in good hands, with capable people, at a wonderful facility like Sequoia really made a difference.

It has been a long and difficult journey that began with a visit to Anobel Tamrazi, M.D., just over two years ago. Looking back now on her experience, Timmy credits the compassionate care she received at Sequoia as well as the love and support of her family for getting her through. 

Dr. Tamrazi has been my Guardian Angel…getting me through this,” she notes.  “What he gives patients, you don’t get in a degree…it comes from his heart.

Thanks to the experience, Timmy concludes “Life has always looked good to me but now it even looks better.
