Contributing Author

Christopher Dryfoos is a journalist and a member of the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA). As the grandson of the U.S. Navy’s first forensic pathologist, he aims to help veterans with mesothelioma access the care they need.

Helping Veterans with Mesothelioma

Christopher has seen firsthand the sacrifices that veterans make and the issues they face.

His late grandfather, Dr. Charles J. Stahl III, proudly served as the U.S. Navy’s first forensic pathologist at a time when asbestos — the only known cause of mesothelioma — was widely used. He later served as Chief Armed Forces Medical Examiner. Several of Christopher’s loved ones and friends serve in the U.S. military today.

Christopher also understands the toll that cancer takes on families. As a child, he lost his grandmother to lung cancer, followed by neighbors and family friends as he grew older.

Through his work at the Mesothelioma Veterans Center, Christopher hopes to help veterans and anyone affected by this deadly cancer understand their options and get the help they deserve.

Commitment to Excellence

Christopher strives to keep all of the content on Mesothelioma Veterans Center accurate and easy for anyone to understand.

Christopher attributes his drive for perfection back to his education. Christopher double-majored in both English and Journalism at the University of Central Florida, graduating in four years with a 3.5 GPA.

Prior to joining the Mesothelioma Veterans Center, Christopher spent several years as a freelance journalist, writing stories for publications in both Pennsylvania and Florida.

Through this work, Chris felt honored to give a voice to the voiceless while sticking to tight deadlines and high editorial standards. He wrote several veteran-centered stories during this time.

Finally, Christopher brings a strong sense of moral and ethical values to his work thanks to his days in the Boy Scouts of America, which was modeled after the values of British veteran Robert Baden-Powell. Like his grandfather before him, Christopher achieved the rank of Eagle Scout and uses his Boy Scout principles to guide his daily life.

Connecting Veterans to Medical and Legal Options

Today, Christopher proudly helps veterans understand their options after a mesothelioma diagnosis. He hopes that his hard work on the site will allow veterans and their families to explore their options with confidence.
