Parent Spotlight ~ Mom Kara

When you first meet Kara, the things you notice about her are her strength, her confidence, and her beauty. As you get to know her, you begin to see a unique and admirable dedication to loving and teaching her beautiful daughter, Ava about life, happiness, and fun.

Kara is living with a very rare type of brain/blood cancer called Follicular Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. Over 2 years ago, after years of headaches and overall discomfort, doctors found a large tumor in Kara’s head. The tumor was 6.5″ x 5.5″ large engulfing both her brain and her skull. Kara has undergone 2 years of chemo and over 10 surgeries and counting. But the energy Kara offers to the world, and energy which we are so grateful to experience at Singleton Moms, is not that of someone who has been through so much at such a young age.

Kara is a catalyst for change in the cancer world, all while being a wonderful mommy to her little Ava, living life to the fullest while helping others to improve theirs.

Now I was being told I, too, had that disease that threatened to take my son only 6 months prior. Within a week of my wellness checkup, I had already had an ultrasound, a mammogram, a biopsy, was diagnosed and a mastectomy in that order.
