My story

[p]Hello, I’m Wendy, I’ve worked for Aviform / Muscleform for 3 years. In 2017, at the age of[/p][p]43, I received the devastating news that I had Ovarian Cancer. Shortly after, I was diagnosed[/p][p]with Lynch Syndrome which is a genetic condition associated with a predisposition to[/p][p]different cancer types.[/p][p][br][/p][p]I had to take 8 months off work to recover from surgery and chemotherapy. My family,[/p][p]friends and work colleagues were very supportive throughout my treatment. It was the[/p][p]thought of going back to work that kept me going; I just wanted to be ‘normal’ again.[/p][p][br][/p][p]I finally returned to work in February 2018. It was then that the enormity of what I’d been[/p][p]through hit me, so I turned to Star Throwers for help. I was apprehensive about going there[/p][p]at first but I needn’t have been, I walked into Star Throwers and was greeted with a smile[/p][p]and a cup of tea. Everyone there is so understanding. I had counselling, complementary[/p][p]therapies and attended group sessions. They really helped me and my family through my[/p][p]Cancer journey. All the support is free of charge, so they rely on donations and fundraising.[/p][p][br][/p][p]My very brave boss Robin and lovely friend and co-worker Melissa have decided to do a[/p][p]skydive to raise funds for Star Throwers. Please support them in this great cause so we can[/p][p]help others affected by cancer (I will be safely on the ground as their biggest cheerleader!!). [/p][p]The Skydive will take place on Saturday 29th June at midday at Beccles airfield[/p][p]Thank you[/p]
