Nominations

Lifetime Achievement Patient Leader Hero Healthcare Collaborator: Patient

When you think of advocacy and activism pioneers, especially in the PCOS community, Ashley aka Pcosgurl is synonymous with everything a leader is: from blazing the way by appearing on tv discussing PCOS to spending over 2 decades advocating for herself, her community and her daughter— she is a shining example for all who follow her lead  — Shelby

Ashley has worked hard to advocate for PCOS for decades. Without her, so many of us would still be floundering trying to figure out what's happening with us.  — Amanda

I nominate Ashley because she shares & informs others what PCOS really is, what it causes, and everything about it. In addition, she participates in PCOS awareness activities and has even exposed her story on television in the past. She does this and so much more in an effort help other "cysters" and educate their family members & even doctors.  — Jocelyne
