Funding Research and Awareness for Ovarian Cancer

Our Mission.

Our mission is to raise funds for ovarian cancer research and increase awareness of the symptoms of this disease.


Dear Friends,

As we near the end of a successful year for Kaleidoscope of Hope (KOH) Ovarian Cancer Foundation, we would like to thank you for participating in one or more of our three walks in September, playing a round of golf at our May golf outing or just graciously donating to our foundation.

Your support helps us to achieve our goals of funding research through grants and promoting awareness through media, presentations, health fairs, etc.

In this holiday season of giving, we hope you remember KOH on your gift list with an extra end-of-the-year donation. Every bit helps in many ways. If you wish to make a donation, please click on the “Donate” button on the left side of this page or send your check to our address, Post Office Box 1124, Madison, NJ 07940.

Your generosity keeps us in the fight against this terrible disease.

Thank you for all you have done for KOH. Blessings to you during this holiday season and in the new year.

Seventeen Years of Passionate Activism!

The Kaleidoscope of Hope Foundation (KOH) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that raises funds and acts as the primary advocate
for ovarian cancer activism in the New Jersey area. KOH was founded in 2000 by three ovarian cancer survivors who turned their
experiences with ovarian cancer into passionate activism.

The "hope" in Kaleidoscope of Hope represents the difference that early diagnostic tests or disease-specific therapy
can make in the lives of women and their families. Since 2000, the Kaleidoscope of Hope Foundation has raised and awarded over $2.7 million to help fund research for early detection and new treatment options.

With a little bit of hope and your help, we can boost the survival rates of women affected by ovarian cancer and change lives.

KOH is looking for men and women volunteers to help in the following areas:

  • Identify and write grants
  • Computer, social networking skills
  • Event Planning
  • Fundraising activities
