Eighteen 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.
