Prostate Cancer Foundation NZ can continue running their incredible weekly Prost-FIT exercise classes thanks to Dry July fundraising

You should feel so proud knowing that the funds raised this Dry July have enabled Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand to continue running their incredible Prost-FIT classes. 

Run by specially trained exercise professionals across 12 regions in New Zealand, Prost-FIT is designed for men living with prostate cancer, at any stage of their diagnosis, and helps to improve the physical wellbeing of people like Doug (pictured).

The benefits that exercise can bring to people affected by prostate cancer are endless; from increasing strength and reducing fatigue, to supporting mental health through mindful meditation, as well as much-needed time out connecting with people who have had similar experiences. 

Thank you!

Dry Julyers, your fundraising efforts this year will help people like Melany face cancer with confidence

Dry Julyers, you should be incredibly proud of your fundraising efforts - you’re helping Look Good Feel Better NZ to provide their wellness workshops, helping people like Melany face cancer with confidence. 💗

These sessions are free for anyone with any cancer at any stage of treatment, including tips and tricks to disguise the visible side effects of cancer, as well as a chance to spend time with people who understand what you are going through.

52-year-old Melany has metastatic breast cancer and had already attended a class five years earlier. She decided to sign up again late last year when she had to have more treatment.

"I had been through a first lot of chemotherapy, and my hair dropped off, my eyebrows dropped off. You don't want to go out in the world, you don't want anyone to see you like that. I remember thinking, ‘no one can make me look good after going through this’."

Attending the Look Good Feel Better class helped lift her spirits during this difficult time, “And that gave me a whole new confidence to be able to face the world. When I smiled, everyone in the house started smiling. It is like a domino effect.”

“Look Good Feel Better gives you the confidence to face the world. And you leave with the skills to recreate those looks again.”
