About The Susie Foundation
What is The Susie Foundation?

The roots of The Susie Foundation can be traced back to November 7th 2009 – the day Susan Ready Matthews was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease). While struggling with the disease, Susan and her family took their first foray into fundraising, raising over $11,000 in 2010 in support of Susan’s Walk to Defeat ALS and The ALS Association of Connecticut. The outpouring of love and support during this fundraising effort helped to provide Susan with hope and optimism, furthering her resolve as she struggled with the worst ALS has to offer.

Following Susan’s passing on April 17th 2011, her family decided to continue this legacy of service, launching The Susie Foundation in 2013 with the hope of alleviating some of financial burdens levied on individuals and families following diagnosis. Since that time – and while being wholly volunteer led – The Susie Foundation has raised over $350,000 to support persons living with ALS across Southern New England

The Susie Foundation is working tirelessly to build on this legacy of service to ensure local persons living with ALS, as well as their families and caregivers, can access life-enhancing funding, services, and technologies to ensure they are able to continue to lead rich and meaningful lives.
