Debra Lundquist

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

Debra is originally from San Diego, CA, where she attended San Diego State University. She recalls that its year-round beautiful weather and proximity to the ocean made it a great place in which to grow up and attend college.

Debra draws on her personal life experiences to relate to and help others through their own situations. For example, she comes from a family of veterans: her father, mother, two brothers, and her husband. This has made her knowledgeable and sensitive to the hardships faced by the brave men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Additionally, Debra gained experience directly assisting those in crisis get the vital help they needed throughout her time as a 9-1-1 call taker.

“It’s in my DNA to help people. I can’t help but help someone. I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t.”

- Debra, Patient Advocate

She was driven to Mesothelioma Hope several years ago to make sure others didn’t receive the same injustice her family did.

After her husband was injured during a medical procedure, the hospital was not forthright about the situation. Debra and her husband spent a year and a half not really knowing what had happened. By the time they were able to find an attorney who could assist them, the time to file a claim had passed. It was a terribly frustrating experience.

Now, she does whatever she can to make sure those who were wrongfully injured obtain the legal assistance they deserve — quickly. She believes that people who have been injured by the actions of others deserve to hold those responsible financially accountable.

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

“If I can help give even one person a small bit of hope, then this life of mine is worth something.”
