West Midlands

Shine West Midlands began in summer 2017. We are currently small, but we are rapidly growing and every meeting is full of very friendly people! Our meet ups currently range from coffee and cake in the morning in the suburbs to evening drinks at the bars of central Birmingham. We vary our meetings across Birmingham and would love to hear your suggestions for future meet ups! If you’d like to get in touch, drop Sarah an email on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and say hi!

Meet the volunteer Network Leader!

west midlandHey I'm Sarah , I was diagnosed and treated for Thyroid Cancer in 2015. My treatment is still ongoing but so far has consisted of 8 surgeries, radioactive iodine, radiotherapy and biological therapy - I am still a regular visitor to my oncologist!
I found Shine back after diagnosis when I joined one of their workshops and since then have just got more and more involved after setting up the West Midlands network when I moved from London. I found great support and comfort being surrounded by people who 'get it' and knowing that I was never alone with my diagnosis (especially when you feel the oldest in the waiting room!)
Shine has been there for me during all stages of treatment, and the large community continues to offer advice when you most need it.
We would love to see you at a West Midlands meet up and welcome you all to join us!
