The Sue Anderson Memorial Scholarship Fund
Sue Anderson was born November 23, 1945 and grew up in Pleasant Hill, CA. In 1976 Sue gave birth to JT, a severe factor IX hemophiliac. At the time of her sons diagnosis treatment for hemophilia was still considered somewhat primitive and unrefined, leading Sue on an endless quest for knowledge.
Sue served for 37 years as the Secretary and Assistant to some of the top investment brokers in the Central Valley at Morgan Stanley/Dean Witter. She was infamous for her glowing personality at Dean Witter, offering a light hearted and fun approach to the world of financial management. Sue married her best friend and soul mate Jim Anderson, and along with JT they had another son Scott in 1972 who is not a hemophiliac. As a couple, Jim and Sue have always symbolized family values as well as hard work and determination. Jim and Sue were married for 42 years before Sue passed away in November 2008.
Sue is well known in the Central Valley for founding the Fresno Hemophilia Auxiliary. With the help of her dear friends, Mark Helm, Susan Kuhn, and Marta Terray, Sue and the Fresno Auxiliary have been able to reach a large percentage of families affected by hemophilia in the Central Valley and help them manage this disease with professional and community support. In honor of Sue and her heartfelt community and volunteer spirit, the Anderson Family is requesting that the recipient of the Sue Anderson Memorial Scholarship Fund donate a small portion of their time by volunteering with the HFNC at two events of your choice. This will not only help the hemophilia community, but will also instill a sense of community involvement in the recipient of this scholarship.
Provides a scholarship in the amount of $500.00 to an individual with a bleeding disorder seeking to continue or further their education.
