The people from Denver, David Hicks and Lizzy Morton, were elected to the Cancer Support Community’s 28-member national board of directors at its meeting in New York recently.

The Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit provides service, research and advocacy for those with cancer, including social and emotional support available online and over the phone.

Hicks is the retired chief information officer for HealthGrades Inc. and works part-time as a technology consultant. Morton is the editor of Cherry Hills Village Living, a monthly magazine, and previously was an attorney for Moye White LLP and Dorsey & Whitney LLP.

Both had served on the board of directors for Denver-based MyLifeLine.org, a digital nonprofit that joined the Cancer Support Community in January. MyLifeLine.org founder Marcia Donziger leads CSC’s business development and digital strategies operation

“We know that Denver residents are proud to call their city the Health Tech Hub—and we are thrilled to be a part of this dynamic and growing community,” Kim Thiboldeaux, CEO of the Cancer Support Community, said in a press release.

“Now that MyLifeLine is part of CSC, we will combine our organizations’ tremendous assets to create the gold standard in digital support for cancer patients and their loved ones. 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.”
