Caring Matters Now is committed to supporting all those affected by Congenital Melanocytic Naevi. We continually review our support strategy to consider new ways of ensuring the support we offer is most helpful to all our members.

Over recent months, we have been putting in place a new adult support team. This exciting development will provide dedicated support for all our adult members. The team will be organising adult gatherings, providing a listening ear, willing to answer any questions regarding living with CMN and signposting members to relevant charity support materials, research updates and charity events.

The team consists of 3 adults with CMN; Cheryl, Stacey & Anne – all from different backgrounds, with varying experiences and can offer a range of personal advice and support to our adult members.

Meet the Team

Cheryl Shaw

My name is Cheryl and I am from Birmingham. I was born with Congenital Melanocytic Nevus and struggled with confidence and self-esteem for many years. I have since learned how to embrace my skin condition which has enabled me to have a better relationship with myself and others around me. You can read my story here. It is an honour to be part of the Caring Matters Now Adult Support Team and support those that have the same condition.

Stacey Dordov

My name is Stacey and I live in Kent. I have a bathing trunk nevus and multiple satellites on my face and body. I found Caring Matters Now when I went to the How Do You C Me Now exhibition in March 2019. Until that day I had never met anybody with the same skin as me. However, since I have made some wonderful new friends, attended gatherings and learned a lot about CMN through this amazing charity. You can read my personal story here.

I am proud to be an Adult Support Contact for Caring Matters Now and if you have any questions or you just want to chat please contact me.  

Anne Kenny

My name is Anne and I have CMN covering my back and multiple moles mainly on my legs. You can read my personal story here. I am delighted to be part of the Adult Support Team and to offer a listening ear to others affected by CMN. If you would like to speak to another adult with CMN, I would be really pleased to hear from you.

Our adult support team look forward to hearing from our adult members, so please feel free to email the team anytime at
