WASHINGTON, D.C. - (June 6, 2018) - The Cancer Support Community’s (CSC) board of directors elected two Denver leaders to its national board of directors at its recent meeting in New York.
David Hicks and Lizzy Morton previously served on the board of directors for MyLifeLine.org, a Denver-based digital nonprofit that became part of CSC in January. CSC now maintains an office in Denver from which MyLifeLine Founder Marcia Donziger leads the national organization’s business development and digital strategies operation.

David and Lizzy were instrumental in making it possible for MyLifeLine to serve thousands of patients and caregivers. As we write the next chapter in innovation, their insight, expertise, and commitment will take us to new levels.”
Retired since 2012, Dave was the Chief Information Officer at HealthGrades, Inc. He currently works as a part-time technology consultant. He graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Management Information Systems.
