My Story

In September 2011, just short of her 2nd birthday, Cara was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma. She is the youngest of 3 girls, and having older siblings she has always been full of spunk trying to keep up with them. Her devilish grin melted your heart, but also kept you on your toes, knowing that she must be scheming something. Upon diagnosis, Cara immediately entered treatment and went through several rounds of chemo. Just as everyone was becoming hopeful that she was heading into remission, an MRI showed more cancer was evident. Cara continued with chemotherapy and never lost her spirit to fight this awful disease despite her many setbacks. On March 16, 2012, just after last year's St. Baldrick's event, Cara lost her battle. She is now a beautiful angel in heaven watching over her family and friends. Although she is missed dearly, it gives us comfort to know that she is no longer in pain.
