PCOS Challege, INC is lead by the most selfless leaders who dedicate their time as volunteers. I find that its very rare in a non-profit that the funds raised go directly to programing to help the intended audience, and that's what they do for women with PCOS. Sasha and William's unwavering dedication has brought much needed resources, symposiums, and resources together to help women with PCOS be their own health advocates, educate health care providers on how to treat women with PCOS, and bring together a community so that no one has to face PCOS alone. If I could give this organization 6 stars, I would.
PCOS Challenge is a great non-profit organization!!! The work that Sasha and William put in for this organization is outstanding. If it wasn't for this organization, I wouldn't have received the knowledge about PCOS! I am so thankful for them and everyone involved. Being able to attend the symposiums to meeting others that suffer with PCOS as well as professionals that specializes in helping women and the family members cope with PCOS, is life-changing! Thank You PCOS Challenge Inc. for all that you do!
It's an amazing feeling to know that you're part of something bigger than yourself. I am fortunate to say I have felt this feeling everytime I have volunteered at a PCOS Challenge event. Seeing so many women and their families come show support at the most recent symposium/walk was inspiring. I am proud to have not only volunteered, but also sponsored a Virtual Walk Team.
I look forward to seeing the PCOS Challenge grow in the future and cannot wait for the next event!
PCOS Challenge, Inc. is a great nonprofit organization for information, support, and friendships. I recently volunteered and participated at the 2016 Symposium and Bolt for PCOS 5K which was truly special. PCOS Challenge hosted the event and did an outstanding job putting together a successful fundraising event. I highly recommend this organization.
PCOS Challenge is an inspired health organization that I've seen in action over the years and most recently through it's affiliation with The Estée Lauder Companies "ELC Good Works" volunteer initiative! What I know firsthand is that PCOS Challenge has consistently created amazing opportunities for corporate teams -- small and large -- to serve diverse communities of women and girls globally. From New York to Philly to Rome and now Madrid, I have supported and continue to support PCOS Challenge, both personally and professionally. I feel grateful to be part of the PCOS movement. Thank you Sasha Ottey and staff for being the best in the world at what you do!

PCOS Challenge, Inc. saved my life. In my 20s, I knew very little about the disorder, yet it had its way with me. Following my first PCOS Challenge Symposium, I was armed with the right tools to not only fight PCOS at home, but also in the doctor's office, where the battle continues to educate. Three symposiums later, I've volunteered with the organization and seen how it works at its core. The help is genuine just as much as it is effective. The only "challenge" is getting this organization funded so that it can help more women and girls suffering in silence.
I choose to continue to support PCOS Challenge, Inc. because it has been a life changing experience to witness how important this organization has been for thousands of women and girls with polycystic ovary syndrome as well as their supporters and healthcare providers. There is an immediate need for increased support for this cause, especially with PCOS being the most common hormone disorder and cause of infertility and leading to early diabetes and heart disease. I believe that more people and corporations should recognize the importance of supporting PCOS Challenge and their work that is improving the health and lives of so many women, girls and their families.
When I was diagnosed with PCOS and quickly learned how many women also have this condition, I knew I had to learn more. I attended the PCOS Symposium hosted by PCOS Challenge in Philadelphia to learn more about what was going on with my body. When I reached out to PCOS Challenge to volunteer at the Symposium, I was welcomed with open arms and was thrilled to learn about how PCOS Challenge tackles PCOS awareness from all angles. PCOS Challenges provides awareness of the emotional, physical and psychological effects this syndrome has on a women's body by providing the PCOS Challenge confidence grant, as well as educational resources for women and their loved ones. It's comforting to have an organization who not only educates women but also provides a forum for the millions of women who have PCOS to openly discuss the complexities of this syndrome.
I was first introduced to PCOS Challenge, Inc. three years ago, and was immediately blown away by the compassion shown to the PCOS community! This organization is truly committed to supporting women and girls with PCOS. I've learned more about PCOS through the resources offered by PCOS Challenge than from my own physicians! This year marked my third year as an active volunteer, and it feels good to be connected to such an organization. They have greatly impacted my life positively, and have motivated me to do the same for other women and girls!
Love what PCOS Challenge does for those with PCOS. Sasha should know that what she does is greatly appreciated.
Knowing that PCOS is greatly underfunded is why I will continue to help raise funds for PCOS Challenge and will continue to advocate for PCOS. Can't wait to volunteer again next year.
