Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide families living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis with compassionate and enduring support services that help them overcome the adversities of the disease and access richer, fuller, and more meaningful lives.

Description

The Susie Foundation can trace its beginnings back to November 6th 2009, the day the organization’s inspiration and namesake, Susan Ready Matthews, was diagnosed with ALS. As catastrophic as the diagnosis was, Susan met the many challenges of ALS head on with inexhaustible perseverance, an unshakeable sense of humor, overwhelming positivity, inspiring selflessness, and unending love for life and those around her.

After Susan’s passing in April of 2011, her son Ryan was inspired by his experience serving as Susan’s caregiver to begin helping others impacted by ALS. Since founding The Susie Foundation in 2013, Ryan has worked tirelessly to provide hope, love, and support to families who have been similarly impacted by ALS.
