Tiffany - Marin Country Club


It is with a very heavy heart that we deliver this difficult news to you. Beloved Member Services Manager/HR Coordinator Tiffany Hutchinson has just received a diagnosis of Stage IV Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer. She begins aggressive chemotherapy treatment this week. This is a cancer that most typically affects men over the age of 45, not strong, young women. Since she is the exception to the rule with this diagnosis, our thoughts remain positive that she will be the exception to the rule as her body accepts the treatment. As you know, Tiffany gave birth to her beautiful son, Dawson, in October, and he along with her husband, Dean, are the loves of her life and give her all the reason she needs to fight with everything she has.

Since it is early in the process, we don’t have a lot of information to share, but a Caring Bridge site has been created if you would like to stay informed. Please see the link at the top of the page.


Tiffany and her family will need all the help that is available to them in love, prayers, meals, babysitting, rides, and also financially. Several Members have already asked how they can help Tiffany and Dean with the many expenses they will be facing. Below please find information about various ways you can help:

  • You may mail directly to her, even a simple card to let her know you’re thinking of her: P.O. Box 193, Penngrove, CA 94951.

“I’m building one hell of an army, and I would be so privileged to have you be a part of it. You’ve all been so good to me and have been such a light in my life.

Many will ask how they can help, and we will need it, but I don’t know what that looks like yet. However, our immediate need is just love and prayers, and we’ll graciously take those in bulk.

I am scared, but I am strong, and I have an amazing baby boy to keep me going.

I adore all of you, and I thank you for being a part of my life.”
