I am so impressed with the organization and there is such an incredible need for an organization that serves women with PCOS. The association offers support, encouragement and information for women that often feel alone and ashamed. The staff that I have had the pleasure to interact with are professional and caring. I support the PCOS Awareness Association with gratitude and pride.
