The Meso Foundation Board of Directors: Shelly Kozicki

Meet Shelly Kozicki, Director

Shelly Kozicki

Shelly has been involved with the Meso Foundation for over 14 years, since her husband Craig received his devastating diagnosis. Shelly lovingly cared for Craig for 11 years before he lost his battle with mesothelioma in April 2009. She has dedicated her life to finding a cure and has taken an active role in the mesothelioma community.

Shelly was the first person to start a named grant in honor of her husband Craig, raising $100,000 to fund the first Craig Kozicki Research Grant in 2007. She has hosted or helped host trivia nights, gold tournaments, Quartermanias, letter-writing campaigns and other events to support the Meso Foundation. Shelly has now funded two $100,000 Craig Kozicki Research Grants and is well on her way to funding a third. Shelly has raised more than $250,000 for mesothelioma research. Shelly's hard work and dedication have been an inspiration to members of the community who have followed her lead and funded named grants for their loved ones.
