WEGO Health was challenged to show our lemon face for PCOS awareness and here at WEGO Health, we’re ALL about helping spread awareness.
What is #LemonFaceChallenge?
The #LemonFaceChallenge for #PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) is to raise awareness and funding to end the silence about this syndrome. PCOS affects one in ten women worldwide, but nobody is talking about it. Now, that’s a SOUR DEAL!!!
How do you participate in the#LemonFaceChallenge?
By biting into a lemon, and showing the world your lemon face, we’re showing that PCOS is a “sour deal” that needs immediate change. For all the details, check out Ashley’s PCOS Gurl blog, but here are the essential steps:
1. Cut a lemon wedge and bite into it
2. Take a pic/video biting lemon
3. Post to your timeline or feed
4. Challenge friends and family
So was WEGO Health up for the challenge?!
HECK YA WE WERE. We always are.
At a Monday morning meeting, a few of us decided to take the challenge and show the world our lemon faces! Here’s what ensued.
First, we took a nice pic with our lemons
Second, we bit into those lemons!
Then we all had some great reactions. . .
Now that a few of us here at WEGO Health took the challenge, who’s up next?!
Thank you for helping to spread awareness Ashley! Let’s change this sour situation for the millions of women out there afflicted by this syndrome.
SHOW US YOUR LEMON FACE!
