Sue Matthews
Author, President – Taylor Matthews Foundation

About Sue

Sue Matthews is the President of the Taylor Matthews Foundation, a tay-bandz organization, which is a 501 C-3, founded by her then 11 year old daughter Taylor, who passed from pediatric cancer at age 16. Sue is a nationally recognized advocate for pediatric cancer.

Sue is the author of Paint Your Hair Blue, a mother’s longing to give enduring eloquence to her daughter’s voice, to not let it go silent. Readers will come away from the book with a vivid understanding of how truly short and precious life is and a greater willingness to add more color as we go along.

TMF funds innovative research and treatments that can reach sick children today, not months or years from now, to improve outcomes and reduce the long-term survivorship side effects associated with pediatric cancer.

Through our various fundraising initiatives, we are changing the course of pediatric cancer treatment at institutions such as Columbia University Medical Center, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, The National Institute of Health and MD Anderson Cancer Center.

We continue to fight in Taylor’s honor and will never falter in our commitment to children with cancer. We are keeping Taylor’s spirit, her thirst to make change, and her dedication to help others alive. While her life was tragically cut short, her mark on the world lives on in our family, in the foundation, and in children who have and will win their battles against cancer.

Sue is a member of the Children’s Council at Columbia Medical University, the National Association of Professional Women, the National Organization of Italian American Women, 6 Figures, Coalition Against Cancer, Cambridge Who’s Who, The National Association of Professional Women, the NYS Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Public Accountants.
