John and Wendy Carlan and their 6 person team, 'The Over 50 Foamies', will be participating in the Foam Fest 5k in Wasaga Beach on August 12th. John and Wendy are excited to run in benefit of Look Good Feel Better - a charity that has been helping women with cancer feel like themselves again for the past 25 years.
Perhaps the most challenging thing about cancer is not the disease itself, but the loss of identity that comes with it. Suddenly you’re no longer a colleague, sister, wife or mother – you’re a cancer patient. The disease robs you of your sense of self, both as a human being and, more specifically, as a woman.
Look Good Feel Better offers a workshop that gives Canadian women the tools and techniques to feel beautiful and vital. In so doing, we help restore a sense of self and renew a feeling of womanhood, however these women choose to define it.
