About Missy

Missy Miller has helped mesothelioma patients and connected them with top doctors since she joined The Mesothelioma Center in 2010. Missy graduated from the University of Central Florida with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, which prepared her to serve the mental and emotional needs of families facing mesothelioma.

Missy’s job is to connect patients with top mesothelioma specialists through The Mesothelioma Center’s Doctor Match program.

Through the relationships she’s built with renowned mesothelioma doctors, social workers and advocates around the U.S., Missy can ensure every patient is seeing the right people to improve their prognosis.

Sometimes, this means helping patients travel to a mesothelioma specialty center in a different city or state. In these situations, she can help patients find travel grants and lodging discounts, so every patient — regardless of insurance — has access to the best care.

Missy also shares emotional support resources with patients and their families, including connecting them with mesothelioma-specific support groups.

For nearly a decade, Missy has guided families on where to turn for medical, financial and emotional support. She is a member of several medical societies, and the Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship interviewed her in 2018 about her role with the Medical Outreach team.
