Passionate Activism

The Kaleidoscope of Hope Foundation Inc (KOH) raises funds for ovarian cancer research and acts as the primary advocate for ovarian cancer activism in the New Jersey area. Read about the research KOH is supporting today. KOH also sponsors Lucy, a canine being trained to sense malignant ovarian cancer cells, at the Monell Chemical Senses Center.  Read the latest about Lucy here.  
KOH was founded in 2000 by three ovarian cancer survivors who turned their experiences with ovarian cancer into passionate activism.

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month!

While we try to increase awareness about ovarian cancer every day, we collectively focus our efforts during National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month each September. During our walks, we educate women about the disease, its symptoms and treatment options while raising money for cancer research. The funds we raise during these events are awarded to researchers using innovative ideas and technology to find an early detection test and a cure for ovarian cancer.

KOH has donated over $3.25 million for
Ovarian Cancer Research.


A webinair, held on 1/20/22 on SHARE, helps to unpack the confusion surrounding different forms of genetic testing.  It discusses the types of tests you may have had and what tests you should consider in “Genetics and “Genomics”: The Ins and Outs of Testing for Patients with Gynecologic Cancer.  
Click Here to access the webinair and the Slide Sets used during the presentation. 
SHARE is a national nonprofit that supports, educates, and empowers anyone who has been diagnosed with women’s cancers, and provides outreach to the general public about signs and symptoms.
