Hola peeps! Last Saturday night I dipped out and headed to the Lower East Side to White Rabbit for the 24 Blogazine Party. This fun event was hosted by founder Vanessa Flowers. Not only was this event to celebrate all that 24 Blogazine has to offer but also to support (PCOS) Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Here is a snippet of what webmd has to say about this disease:
Polycystic ovary syndrome (say “pah-lee-SIS-tik OH-vuh-ree SIN-drohm”) is a problem in which a woman’s hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS may also cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it is not treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease. Polycystic ovary syndrome (or PCOS) is common, affecting as many as 1 out of 15 women. Often the symptoms begin in the teen years. Treatment can help control the symptoms and prevent long-term problems.
I had such a fun time and I love that it was for a great cause as well. A portion of the proceeds were donated to The Jewish Hospital Cholesterol and Metabolism Center to help with research and treatment. To find out more visit www.jewishhospitalcincinnati.com to help or donate.
