A 20-year-old woman with just months left to live has been overwhelmed by support from the community.

Shanice Myers, of South Lynn, launched an online fundraising page  to help her achieve her last wishes and make the most of the time she has left.

Since opening her page last week donations have poured in and, at the time of going to press, almost topped £4,500. 

Miss Myers, who lives with her mum Caroline Chelsom and brother Kye Myers, 14, was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive form of cancer inside her spinal cord, in March.

Within a month, she has gone from walking, cycling and working, to using a wheelchair.

Miss Myers is currently undergoing gruelling radiotherapy treatment at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.

But she is determined to “take each day as it comes and enjoy every moment” and is currently drawing up a bucket list, which includes taking a trip abroad.

“It’s so overwhelming. I can leave England for the first time, experience foods I’ve never heard of and see things I never knew existed,” Miss Myers said.

“I am truly speechless and cannot put into words the appreciation, love and respect I have for each and every one who has contributed, donated and supported.

“It has had a massive impact on my mental health and, despite the circumstances, I’ve been feeling good in myself knowing all these people around me are wishing me the best.”

Miss Myers is also thinking of starting a YouTube channel to document her journey and time making precious memories with her loved ones.
