Welcome to In Sue’s Name
In Sue’s Name is a charity founded in 2014 to raise awareness, funds and support for anyone suffering from the effects of brain tumours.
Our target is to raise £1 million by 2027 in order to provide crucial research funds to support the Blizard Institute in Whitechapel – the Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence at Queen Mary University of London.
But as well as raising funds for research into brain tumours, we are bringing together families who have lost loved ones from this cruel disease.
Ultimately, we want to create a legacy that will see a cure developed for brain cancers, enabling other families to avoid the heartbreak suffered by so many through this illness.
Why we are here
Brain cancers kill more people under the age of 40 than any other cancer, and yet the research into its cure receives just a tiny fraction (less than 1%) of the government funding that goes to other cancer research. This needs to be put right.
Brain cancers devastate young families, leaving parents without children and children without parents.
In Sue’s Name was set up as a fundraising charity in memory of Sue Blasotta, who died in 2011 from brain tumours, aged just 42, leaving two young children.
HOW CAN YOU HELP
Get involved in one of our events as a volunteer is a great way to help the cause and find out about the great work we do. Even if you can just give up a couple of hours every other month, it’s a huge help
From a pound or two of sponsorship of one of our events, to corporate sponsorship of the charity, we promise that anything you give will go directly to research, and we’ll ensure that your contribution is acknowledged – publicly or privately, as you wish.
We organise lots of events, so come along and have fun! From themed parties to golf days, from skydives to dinners, all proceed go to the charity’s beneficiaries.
