Rose Becker, a cousin of Cara, recently had her Bat Mitzvah and asked that her friends and family in lieu of presents make donations to Karma for Cara. We could not be more touched and honored by her generous contribution to the foundation.

Below is a message from Rose:

“Cara and I had such a special bond, we were like sisters. Honestly, it was a no-brainer to donate all of the money to Karma for Cara, because the wonderful foundation, and Cara, deserve it beyond belief….


A couple of months ago, we at Karma for Cara learned about a great program called Camp Sunrise, a cost-free, one-week camp for those who have previously or are currently battling childhood cancer. We immediately knew we wanted to support this great cause.

Johns Hopkins Camp Sunrise gives 115 campers between the ages of 5 and 18 a traditional camp experience, including swimming, ropes courses, arts and crafts and making s’mores around the campfire.

The camp is designed to allow the campers an outlet from the everyday realities of their cancer and gives them a chance to just be kids, while providing for their medical needs….


This past weekend, Cara’s brother Greg Becker and friend Whitney Fishman ran the NYC Half Marathon while raising money for Karma for Cara.

Whitney shared some photos with us from her run.

Congrats, Whitney and Greg! Karma for Cara is proud of you!


Karma for Cara is partnering with Kennedy Krieger Institute in introducing the Cara Becker ROAR for Autism Youth Fundraising Award.

Cara spent years involved with KKI’s ROAR for Autism, a family-friendly biking, walking and running event that raises awareness and money for autism research. Cara worked securing raffle prizes and selling hundreds of tickets, following in the foot steps of her mom, Jill, who co-chaired the event for many years. To honor her memory and her dedication to ROAR for Autism, the Cara Becker ROAR for Autism Youth Fundraising Award was created….


In just less than two weeks, Cara’s brother Greg will hit the pavement of New York City, running 13.1 miles in the NYC Half Marathon, while raising money for Karma for Cara.

Good luck, Greg! We’ll keep our fingers crossed for warmer weather and no snow!…
