ROSWELL, Ga. -- At the Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell, the next three Sundays will be home to the Wigwam Fest. If Jennifer Lingvall has her way, the word 'wigwam' will become like Dogwood or Music Midtown -- a crowd-drawing festival of a different sort, where you can do and try everything.
"Some of the classes include yoga, stand up paddle boarding, clean eating chefs, inspirational speakers," Lingvall said.
Lingvall was a busy event planner in Atlanta. "I worked on festivals and events, more like the raging drinking kind," she said, laughing.
That was until 2012, when she was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer at the age of 31.
"My cancer was very aggressive. On the three grades, I was grade three and off the charts. In addition to eight rounds of chemo and a double mastectomy, I did everything under the sun," she said.
