A contribution to the Kaleidoscope of Hope Foundation is a gift to the health and well-being of women everywhere.
Our mission is to raise funds for ovarian cancer research and increase awareness of the symptoms of this disease.
It is with deep sadness that we share that KOH Founder, Lois Myers passed away on November 29, 2016.
Read her story on this page.
In addition to being a Founder, Lois' roles with KOH included service as Board President and Executive Director.
Her work raising awareness of ovarian cancer symptoms and the need to increase research funding
took her throughout the state of NJ and to Washington, D.C.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.

Sixteen 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 womenaffected by ovarian cancer and change lives.
