Our Team

Sue McCollum

Founder and Chief Executive Officer

A graduate of the University of Michigan, Sue McCollum writes two Newsletters on line each month, Through My Lens is life as seen through her lens, and the My Blue Dots Newsletter is current news about My Blue Dots. She has also written eight books.

Sue was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1999 and completed her treatments at Stanford University Medical Center. Her first book, Moving On (before and after cancer) is her journal of her journey through her cancer experience.

To honor her parents Marion and Don Howell, who both died of cancer, Sue established an endowed fund at Stanford University Medical Center for cancer research in 2002. The Stanford University/Sue McCollum Blue Dot Fund has funded Dr. Albert Koong and his research at Stanford. To continue to support his cancer research and cancer research and programs across the country, the My Blue Dots non-profit fund was established in 2006 (tax ID #20-5469956).
