“We are truly honored by the support we receive from so many individuals and teams, including Oceans of Hope,” Lynn Franklin, President of the Kaleidoscope of Hope Foundation, said. “I am a survivor, and I was lucky to be diagnosed. I can tell you that the need is real. Ovarian cancer is a silent killer with symptoms that are often ignored, and the work we are doing to raise awareness and funds for research is critically important. Join us at the walk in Avon, and our walk in Lyndhurst on Sept. 25.”
