Gold Ribbon Hero Susan W

“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: Susan is an interior designer, and owns Savvy Interiors & Design in San Diego California.  She has experienced cancer on a personal level with both her mother and her husband having battled cancer in recent years.  Susan started an organization called Savvy Giving by Design a few years ago.  It was  originally a simple grass roots effort, to create comfortable, cozy and fun spaces for kids fighting cancer.  What began with Susan and a handful of generous friends & family, working together to make one critically ill child happy – has grown into an official non-profit which has received support and recognition from local & national vendors and suppliers as well and continued support from a loyal group of Savvy-givers (last count had 2000+ followers on SGBD Facebookpage).    The most recent room make-over was done in coordination w/make-a-wish for a pre-teen boy w/cancer.  The current project is for the toddler daughter of a SD  Childrens-hospital nurse, who had treated a previous SGBD recipient.   Please check out her work at and consider Susan Wintersteen and Savvy Giving By Design for a Gold Medal Hero.” – Heather M
