The Taylor Matthews Foundation
The Taylor Matthews Foundation (TMF), a tay-bandz organization, is a 501 C-3 non-profit dedicated to raising awareness and funding pediatric cancer research. It is our mission that children with cancer live long, healthy and productive lives.
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. The Taylor Matthews Foundation has raised approx. $1.6 million dollars for cancer research and is currently prioritizing raising funds for Precision Medicine, which involves genome sequencing of an individual child’s tumor to identify mutations in their DNA.
Taylor Matthews founded TMF at age eleven when she was diagnosed with cancer. Taylor ultimately lost her battle with pediatric cancer at age sixteen.
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 the foundation and in children who have and will win their battles against cancer.
Sue Matthews is the president of TMF and is a nationally recognized advocate for pediatric cancer awareness. She lobbies Congress for additional funding for pediatric cancer research. Sue is a member of the Children’s Council at Columbia Medical University Center, the National Association of Professional Women, the National Organization of Italian American Women, the NYS Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Public Accountants. She holds a B.A. in Accounting from Franklin and Marshall College and is a CPA and former Senior Manager at Deloitte.
Paint Your Hair Blue
Sue Matthews, along with her sister Andrea Cohane, is the author of Paint Your Hair Blue: A Celebration of Life with Hope for Tomorrow in the Face of Pediatric Cancer which is a heartwarming story of heroic courage and unbridled love that will inspire and empower you, no matter what your circumstance, to embrace and take control of your life. Paint Your Hair Blue chronicles the journey of Taylor Matthews, a courageous young woman who fought pediatric cancer and shows readers the triumphs and heartaches of her journey. It also shows a unique insider perspective to the underfunded world of pediatric oncology.
Taylor remained strong and courageous in the face of pain and uncertainty in the five years she was fighting cancer. Taylor was passionate about living a life not defined by cancer and helped other kids struggling with cancer do the same. Paint Your Hair Blue poignantly tells the story of the love and determination Taylor embodied, while simultaneously educating parents both practically and emotionally as they navigate their child’s treatment. It urges parents to be their own advocates in their children’s healthcare.
