On Your Side
Mesothelioma Help Now is managed by d50 Media and sponsored by Sokolove Law, a national law firm with a successful track record of helping people affected by mesothelioma understand and intelligently navigate the legal claims process. We are committed to helping you find out how, where, and when you may have been exposed to asbestos—and to helping you take action.
Who I am: I have 2 kids and enjoy running and being active outdoors with my family.
What motivates me: Previously, I worked for several years as a mental health counselor, so I understand the emotional stress families face when dealing with illnesses such as mesothelioma. With master’s degrees in psychology and journalism, I’m driven to write supportive information that helps people deal with this disease.
Who I am: I’m a father of 3 amazing kids. I’m a musician, a yogi, a long-distance cyclist, and a fly-fishing geek.
What motivates me: I’m driven to craft words, images, and videos that help people really understand this complicated disease so they can make better decisions at every step along their journey.
Who I am: I’m a wife and mother of 1 active boy. I love to cook and have been experimenting with bread making lately.
What motivates me: My father has worked as a master plumber for over 40 years. As a result, he has been exposed to asbestos a countless number of times. Since mesothelioma can take decades for symptoms to develop, he gets screenings periodically. We have been lucky so far, but it is stressful each time we wait for the results. No family should have to deal with this horrible disease, especially since it is preventable.
Who I am: I’m a wife, stepmom, and pop culture enthusiast. I love bad music, good TV, dancing, history, and building my family tree on Ancestry.com.
What motivates me: Everyone has their own unique story and journey when it comes to mesothelioma, but I’m a firm believer in community and building a strong support system. No one should have to fight mesothelioma alone, and I’m motivated to write content that creates conversations and gives patients and their loved ones a little more hope.
Who I am: I am a Boston girl at heart and love summers at Fenway Park.
What motivates me: I lost my mother to cancer 7 years ago and am committed to helping other families. I know the stress, confusion, sadness, and anger all firsthand, and I hope the articles I write can be helpful to people dealing with a mesothelioma diagnosis. I have a master’s degree in philosophy, so you may see some philosophical ideas sprinkled into my writing.
Who I am: I grew up in Las Vegas and graduated from Johnson & Wales University in Providence with a degree in computer graphic design and new media in 2008. I’m a straight shooter and an open book.
What motivates me: My motivation is YOU, the visitor. All my efforts are intended to enable you to learn something you didn’t know and do so on an easy-to-use website.
Who I am: I am a son and a brother.
What motivates me: I strive to bring pertinent information to people facing life-changing challenges. Information is power and information creates confidence. Like many, I have lost family members to cancer. I have experienced firsthand how information can affect one’s confidence and outlook when preparing to fight a disease, which is something I hope to share with others.
Who I am: I am a husband and father of 3 who simply can’t spend enough time outdoors.
What motivates me: The desire to provide information and resources capable of helping others through the many challenges that aggressive cancers create. Like many, I’ve lost parents, grandparents, and friends to these diseases—and I’m ready to help others fight back with open hearts and open arms.
Who I am: Father to a 2 year old girl, a writer, and a sports fan.
What motivates me: My father was afflicted with a progressive, degenerative disease, and I
understand the value of information when a loved one or family member has been diagnosed,
and I want to help provide that information in an easily accessible way.

Who I am: I’m a mother of 2 boys and the youngest of 7. I lived in Hong Kong and South Dakota before I settled down in Massachusetts. I’m fiscally conservative but socially liberal. I love shoes, sushi, shopping, sunshine, sanity, and SoHo, NYC.
What motivates me: I’m a user-experience expert who is on a constant quest to create useful and meaningful products that people find easy to use and love. My dad passed away from lung cancer when the Internet was in its infancy. It was challenging to learn more about the illness and find answers to my questions.
