Sue May the charity founder and chair has been awarded an MBE. The New Year honours system recognises people who have, made achievements in public life and/or committed themselves to serving and helping in the Commonwealth..
Sue has been awarded for her work with Jersey Brain Tumour Charity.
Sue commented on this. “I am obviously extremely honoured to have been given this award. As much as it is for me personally, I hope it also helps to spotlight the work of the Jersey Brain Tumour Charity which I founded in 2011 after my own diagnosis and surgery.
Brain Tumours can affect anyone regardless of age, gender, background or lifestyle and I am really proud that Jersey now has an established Brain Tumour Community. The charity offers local support to patients and their families and makes a real difference by ensuring that people are not isolated and do not have to experience a frightening brain tumour journey alone.”
Well done Sue!!
