There are moments in life, when time stops and everything is affected from that moment forward.
That moment, for me, was when the blue dots were tattooed on my body to guide the path of the radiation
beams to kill the cancer. Because of this life altering experience, My Blue Dots was founded.

— Sue McCollum, Founder and Executive Director

We honor

cancer warriors who proudly wear the blue dots.


We support and encourage those going through their cancer experience with the book, Moving On, before and after cancer, as well as providing blue dot items as a badge of courage to those who wear the blue dots.

Meet our warriors...

We inform

others what the blue dots are and what we are doing.


In addition to telling our story, we aim to sprinkle the world with blue dot items as a symbol of hope and a vision of a world free of cancer. The blue dots are tattoos that are placed on your body before your radiation treatments to mark where the radiation beams should go.

We give

to cancer research and cancer support programs.


We are working to find a cure for cancer in our lifetime. We are currently supporting cancer research by internationally-recognized Dr. Albert Koong, as well as working with and supporting cancer programs at the Stanford University Medical Center, local non-profits, the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, and stem cell research at Stanford University.

The My Blue Dots Story

In each life there are moments when time stops. This is a story about one of those moments, the moment Sue McCollum, founder of My Blue Dots, was told she had breast cancer. At that moment Sue decided to transform this blue dot symbol of fear into one of hope, healing, and health. This video tells the story of My Blue Dots. We hope Sue’s story will inspire you to be proud of your blue dots and share your blue dots story to encourage healing, hope and health.
