In Memory of Caroline Richards

We helped to raise money for childhood cancer research

Since she was a little girl, Caroline roamed her Texas neighborhood bearing freshly baked goods and making friends with all the neighbors. Caroline’s giving spirit and contagious grin persisted through chemotherapy, surgery, radiation and physical therapy. Diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her right arm in January 2014, Caroline spent most of that year in the hospital in Houston. Despite the treatment, Caroline’s disease continued to progress and she died on January 9, 2015, surrounded by her loving family. “We have learned that statistics don't matter — this disease is highly personalized. Each child responds differently as we have learned with our many challenges over this past year,” her father, Mark, said. When Caroline felt well enough, she liked to go shopping and spend time with family, friends, her two Labradoodles, and her newest family member, Herbert the Hedgehog. She loved all holidays, but especially Easter and Christmas, when she relished picking out the perfect presents for her loved ones and decorating. Her motto with holiday decorations was “more is more”! Her mom, Lauren, said, “She was a ‘giver’ and loved to share happiness. She once told me how much she loves to just make people laugh.”
