FOLLOWING OUR WALK IN Avon, New Jersey – The Kaleidoscope of Hope Foundation (KOH) invites you to join us for a very special after our walk culminating activity – Passing of the Torch from Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month to Breast Cancer Awareness Montha day of inspiration and hope.

Passing of the Torch highlights the hereditary link between ovarian and breast cancer, honors
cancer survivors and those at high risk, remembers those who have lost their lives
to cancer, and recognizes families affected by cancer.
This awareness campaign and its related events also educates individuals
about hereditary ovarian and breast cancer, including the signs of a hereditary
syndrome, resources for assessing ovarian cancer risk, and information on
prevention and risk-management options.
A ceremonial flame is passed from an ovarian cancer survivor to a breast
cancer survivor marking the transition from Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month to
Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
