Our Chief Executive Sue Farrington Smith awarded MBE
We are hugely honoured and delighted to announce that our Chief Executive, Sue Farrington Smith, has been awarded an MBE in the New Year’s Honours.
“I cried when I heard the news. It is such a great honour. It made me realise the enormity of what has been achieved in the last 15 years, since we lost my sister’s little girl, Alison Phelan, three weeks before her eighth birthday.
I feel blessed that so many patients, families and supporters choose to fundraise and campaign alongside us. They keep me motivated.
There are so many people who have been with me and Ali’s family and friends on this journey. We have always been so completely focused on finding a cure for brain tumours and now, more than ever before, we have such hope for the future. I know that together with our supporters we will find a cure.”
- Sue Farrington Smith MBE
As 2016 draws to a close, we wish you all health and happiness for the New Year and look forward to the progress we will make together in 2017. Together we will find a cure.
