A Passion for Helping Others
Stephanie Kidd is the Editor-in-Chief of the Mesothelioma Cancer Network and works tirelessly advocating for the vulnerable and underrepresented.
Throughout her life, Stephanie carved out a path as both a high performer and a servant to those in need. As a child, she and her mother frequently helped feed the homeless at their church and continued to volunteer throughout high school.
While studying business and marketing at Stetson University, Stephanie served as Vice President of Intellectual Development for her sorority, whose mission was to fundraise and shed light on domestic violence awareness. During her term, she actively advocated for victims of domestic abuse and helped raise thousands for local women’s shelters.
Serving the Blue-Collar Worker
Prior to joining the Mesothelioma Cancer Network, Stephanie worked as a copywriter communicating safety procedures on construction work sites. As she created resources about national compliance guidelines for the removal of asbestos, Stephanie was first introduced to the dangers of this mineral and the tragic reality of mesothelioma.
In 2018, Stephanie found the perfect marriage of her marketing background and passion for advocacy when she joined the Mesothelioma Cancer Network.
After learning how often mesothelioma affects those who’ve served, Stephanie has also found great pride in helping veterans access the health care and financial resources they need. Stephanie has both close friends and family who have served with pride.
Connecting Patients to the Help They Need
With her extensive background in victim advocacy and a dedication to serving others, Stephanie works hard to ensure that all online content at the Mesothelioma Cancer Network is accessible, trustworthy, and helpful.
She has seen firsthand the emotional and financial toll that a diagnosis of terminal cancer, like mesothelioma, can inflict on families. Having recently lost her grandmother to cancer, Stephanie is more motivated than ever to help patients and families understand their support options.
Today and beyond, Stephanie is proud to follow her passion and help those suffering from mesothelioma get medical, legal, and financial assistance.
