The Norwich network was started in 2014 and has been lead by Corinne since December 2017. Corinne decided to volunteer as a network leader after attending a few of Shine's national events and wanted to help keep the Norwich social meet ups going, finding it helpful to meet other young adults going through cancer in her local area. Chezy started helping out in January 2019 after meeting Corrine.
Hi, I’m Chezy. I was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma in 2017, and like Corinne treated with chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery.
On the day I was diagnosed my consultant (who specialises in young person’s cancers) gave me a list of support groups and resources, Shine being one of them.
It was a great comfort for me to know I wasn’t alone in my cancer experience at such a young age. Shine gave me a community I really needed. Through our support groups we help each other with advice and friendship, this continues at any stage of your experience.
We would love to welcome you at a Norwich meet up, so please do join us!
