About the Karen Leung Foundation

The Karen Leung Foundation (“KLF”) is a registered charity (IRD Number: 91/13069) promoting prevention, early detection, and optimal treatment of gynecological cancer in Hong Kong.

Karen was 34 years old, engaged to be married, with a promising career as a trader at Oasis Hong Kong, when she was diagnosed with metastatic cervical cancer. She passed away less than a year later in October 2012. In the days before she died, Karen expressed her wish to raise awareness among Hong Kong women and girls about gynecological cancer.

Founded in 2013, the Karen Leung Foundation is protecting Hong Kong girls from cervical cancer through education and vaccination as part of our HPV vaccination program. KLF is providing educational talks in corporate and community settings to raise awareness about prevention and early detection and providing care and support for gynecological cancer patients and their families.
