Nick and I will be attending the gala. Looking forward to seeing some good friends.

Celebrated researchers will be awarded grants by the organization to pursue their cutting edge projects for this gynecological cancer.  Other honoreeswill be recognized for their notable contributions and unwavering support for the KOH Foundation and for the cause of ovarian cancer.
This year’s grant recipients for ovarian cancer research  include Alison Karst, Ph.D  of The Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts, Roisin O'Cearbhaill, M.D. of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City and Brian Slomovitz, M.D. of Atlantic Health Systems in Morristown, New Jersey. Each researcher will receive funding for projects that will advance ovarian cancer research.
A highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the Kaleidoscope of Hope Founders’ Award.  This prestigious award recognizes an individual or group whose outstanding efforts both serve and support the ovarian cancer community.   The recipient of the award for 2012 is the Lyndhurst Board of Education for their district wide fundraising activities for this women's health cause.
Ovarian cancer claims the lives of nearly 15,000 women annually in the United States.  It is the fifth leading cause of cancer death in women  and the leading cause of gynecological cancer death  in the US.   It is for this reason that KOH actively supports awareness education and funds research initiatives for early detection, improved treatment strategies and the ultimate cure for ovarian cancer.
The Kaleidoscope of Hope Foundation is a registered non-profit organization that serves as a primary advocate for ovarian cancer activism in the state of New Jersey.  Since its inception 12 years ago, KOH has pursued its mission to raise awareness and fund research  for this disease.  Founded by three ovarian cancer survivors, KOH has  raised over $2 million for ovarian cancer research projects at various highly acclaimed hospitals and  renowned medical institutions throughout the United States.
