Review for PCOS Challenge, Inc., Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2009 I had just moved to Atlanta and was really relieved at this point to just have a diagnosis after going so long with not knowing what was going on. Fast forward I was on facebook and saw this group PCOS Challenge here in the city and knew I needed to get involved and boy did it change my outlook and trajectory of my life as I started to get educated about all of the symptoms I was having and the best thing was I was no alone.... I started getting involved right way and Sasha Ottey the founder/executive director opened up her arms to welcome me into the Cyster sisterhood. Everything has been great from the 5k race to the symposium to the advocacy I was able to do on Capitol Hill. This is a non-profit that has their priorities in the right place and that starts with the clients/families affected by PCOS. It has been refreshing to be affiliated and volunteer with this organization that has done nothing but try to bring and awareness and support us as we try and get the word out about a disease that gets no air play. THANK YOU PCOS CHALLENGE for all you do to aid us in the fight.
