Patient Advocate Ana Munoz

Ana Munoz

Mesothelioma Hope is made up of a team of patient advocates, like Ana Munoz. She has committed her career to raise awareness about mesothelioma and asbestos exposure and fighting on behalf of patients and their families.

Ana was born in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras, which is located in a central valley surrounded by mountains. As a child, Ana’s father worked on construction projects and her mother was a bank accountant. She spent the later part of her childhood in Portland, Oregon, where she still lives today. She enjoys both the rainy weather as well as the beautiful outdoors.

Ana’s family taught her how important it is to do what you can for others. Early on in Ana’s career, she was trained in elderly caregiving and worked closely with her family caring for senior citizens. She has carried this experience through her life in offering care and empathy to all, but especially for those that need it most.

“When someone else is in a position where they have to turn to
others for help, there’s nothing more important than providing
kindness and helping to ease the difficulty of that situation. I always want to be the
one who makes someone rest easier after speaking with me.”

- Ana, Patient Advocate

Many clients are learning about asbestos exposure and mesothelioma for the first time after they receive a diagnosis. Ana’s extensive knowledge helps with their learning curve, as she is patient and understanding, answering their questions and explaining what they can expect.

Having previously worked as an interpreter, Ana can pick up on languages quickly. She is not only fluent in English and Spanish, but has learned a little Swedish and has been studying Japanese for four years.

In her free time, Ana loves painting, crocheting, and embroidering or simply sitting down and unwinding with a cup of tea.

Ana looks forward to hearing your story and providing guidance during this difficult time.
