About Stephanie

Stephanie Laureano is a United States Air Force veteran and a registered nurse who is passionate about assisting those who have been diagnosed with asbestos diseases, including mesothelioma cancer.

She oversees the most comprehensive program available for patients and their families, providing much-needed support for all those involved.

Laureano worked previously in hospice and home health. She also served four years in the U.S. Air Force Nurse Corps, overseeing a cardiac life support program. She later served as a trauma nurse with the Air Expeditionary Force.

“My career path has always been in the direction of being an advocate for patients,” Laureano said. “Working at The Mesothelioma Center at affords me the opportunity to utilize my education, my talents and desire to help those in need.”

Laureano is a graduate of Fairfield University in Connecticut. She completed her MBA at Colorado Technical University with a concentration in health care administration.

Her years in the Air Force have enhanced her desire to help veterans, who represent a disproportionate number of mesothelioma patients diagnosed every year. This stems from the military’s heavy reliance on asbestos products for decades.

“I have a deep appreciation and a real passion for helping these veterans,” she said. “I know the sacrifices they and their families have made to protect us all and provide a better life for our country. I love that we have a program here specifically to help veterans along the way.”

Laureano works closely at The Mesothelioma Center with Patient Advocates, the medical outreach team and veterans specialists, all of whom collaborate to provide the best possible personalized care for every patient and family who seeks help.

“We are the No. 1 option for patients,” she said. “If you’re dealing with asbestos exposure, we are the place for patients and their families to turn to. We can be that ray of hope. That’s what we want people to understand.”
