When I was first diagnosed I didn't know that there were ovarian cancer organizations raising awareness and funds for research. When I finished chemotherapy in 2006 I knew I wanted to get involved so I asked my gynecologic oncologist about organizations. She told me about Kaleidoscope of Hope Foundation and NOCC. I reached out by phone and joined those organizations.
If you want to help here is a list of organizations in NJ.
Kaleidoscope of Hope Foundation
Janice Lopez Ovarian Cancer Foundation
Mary Mazanec Ovarian Cancer Foundation
National Ovarian Cancer Coalition - New Jersey Chapter
Ovarian Cancer Research Fund - NJ events listed on their calendar
The Teal Tea Foundation
Teal Tender Hearts for Ovarian Cancer Awareness
Turn the Towns Teal
I have volunteered with many of these organizations, attended events and personally
know many of the founders / directors. Each and every one of them has
done outstanding work to either raise awareness, donate millions of
dollars to research or have support women diagnosed with ovarian cancer. You can help those
fighting this disease and do it close to home.
If you know of an organization in NJ missing from my list, please mention them in the comment section below.Thanks.
Every Day is a Blessing!
