Administrator and AAMVA Region 1 President, Chrissy Nizer, has chosen The Leukemia Lymphoma Society (LLS) as the charity of choice for the 2019 AAMVA Region 1 Conference in Cambridge, Maryland. Chrissy Nizer invites AAMVA members and conference attendees to join her in the fight against blood cancers by donating to LLS to support their mission to cure blood cancers.
The MDOT MVA family and AAMVA are committed to finding a cure for blood cancers and support all our colleagues, family, and friends that have been affected by this disease. We have been touched too many times by cancer within our organizations and hope that we can make a difference by working with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to put an end to cancer.
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan was diagnosed with aggressive Stage 3 non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma a few months after he was inaugerated in 2015. After undergoing several types of treatments, he announced that he was 100% cancer free and in complete remission.
Join AAMVA and the MDOT MVA in support of LLS' mission to cure blood cancers and provide a better quality of life for patients and their families. We hope that you take a moment to join us in the fight against blood cancers.
