   Thank you to all our supporters who joined us on April 20, 2016 for our proceeds night at George and Martha's American Grille , Morristown.
   You helped us to raise $400 for ovarian cancer research.


It is with deep sadness that we share that Carole Fagella, our Board President, passed on 2/7/16. It was her 60th birthday.

Since joining the Board Carole served in many roles, most recently as President. She advocated for awareness and research funding as well as mentored other women with ovarian cancer.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband, Bob and her son, Alex.

 SixteenYears 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. Learn more about KOH.



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
