The Karma for Cara Foundation is a non-profit founded by 21-year-old Cara Becker and her family while she was being treated for leukemia at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center in October of 2012. Cara had always been involved in community service since a young age, and she and her family saw a tremendous need to support other patients who were going through the same challenging treatment. Tragically, Cara passed away in December 2012 from complications from leukemia. The Karma for Cara Foundation has a threefold mission: 1) to promote and support youth engagement and service to others in communities throughout the United States, 2) to work to reduce the suffering of cancer patients and their families, and 3) to recognize and reward individuals and organizations that are having an outsized impact in service to others due to their passion, energy and smarts.karmaforcara.org
