In Sue's Name


In Sue’s Name was set up in honour and remembrance of a very special wife, mother and daughter, Sue Blasotta, who was diagnosed with lesions on the brain in November 2010 and died just six weeks later, aged 42. Sue was a committed and integral member of her North London Roman Catholic parish and was always on hand to support, listen and help people in crisis, even when she had problems of her own.

In Sue’s Name also honours and remembers other members of St Monica’s parish in Palmers Green who were also lost to brain tumours around the same time as Susan – five other families lost loved ones between the years of 2008 and 2012.

The primary aims of the charity are to raise awareness of brain cancer, the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the UK among children and adult patients under the age of 40; to support clinical research into brain cancers; and to offer a forum of support to brain cancer patients and their families. In Sue’s Name has set a target to raise £1 million by 2027 to provide crucial research funds to support Brain Tumour Research’s Centre of Excellence at Queen Mary University of London.
