PCOS Diva’s mission is to empower women with PCOS to reclaim their fertility, femininity, health and happiness.
One of the most difficult PCOS symptoms which many women experience is hirsutism or unwanted, male-pattern hair growth in women. I have personally struggled with this symptom, and laser hair removal was a lifesaver for me, helping me regain my confidence and self-esteem. Because hair removal and other hair and skin treatments can be cost-prohibitive, I am thrilled for this opportunity to help women reclaim their femininity through the Confidence Grant.
As part of a multi-year endowment from PCOS Diva, the nonprofit organization PCOS Challenge, Inc. will be offering grants of up to $500 to help women and girls struggling with hair and skin issues related to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). The PCOS Diva/PCOS Challenge Confidence Grant assists with the costs associated with dermatology treatments, laser hair removal, or electrolysis.
Applications for the PCOS Diva/PCOS Challenge Confidence Grant will be reviewed and selected twice per year – once in the spring and once in the fall.
