About Us

The Susan Marie Rupp Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in loving memory of Susan Marie (McCullen) Rupp, who courageously battled recurring Ovarian Cancer for 8 years.

Susan was a life-long resident of Pine Hill, New Jersey, and was devoted to her hometown, especially its children. Known affectionately to most kids as “Coach Sue” or “Mrs. Rupp,” she was actively involved in youth athletics for 39 years and was a beloved teacher’s assistant for over a dozen years.

Sadly, Susan lost her fight against Ovarian Cancer on July 30, 2010 at the age of 52.

Founded in September 2010 by Susan’s family, our foundation’s primary mission is to raise awareness of Ovarian Cancer, educate women on the often-vague symptoms, and raise money for research in the hope that within our lifetimes others will not have to face the loss of a treasured loved one to this “silent killer.”

Our foundation will also continue to honor Susan’s legacy within the Pine Hill community through programs and donations to the Pine Hill Youth Association and the Pine Hill School District, two of her greatest passions in life.
