Dorothy Spriggs was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in 1999 and is currently doing well.
Since 2011, “Ms. Dottie” has volunteered with the Baltimore chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. She does office work regularly, participates in events and volunteers as a peer counselor to support others living with the same diagnosis.
She also joined a grassroots coalition and helped advocate for a bill requiring oral parity in Maryland. While managing her CML, she is grateful that she is able to work with LLS and enjoy family and friends.
Ms. Dottie is living a full life and is proud to be a dedicated friend and volunteer. She travels and is best friends with her 90-year-old mother. She gives back in every facet of her life and is a wonderful volunteer.
“The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was there for me in my time of need,” said Ms. Dottie. “Therefore, I want to give back and show my appreciation for the support I’ve received.”
