Future for Max

On June 21, 2020, we lost our beloved Cara Cochrane at the hands of domestic violence. She was an amazing sister, daughter, and best friend to all those who knew and loved her, and more importantly, the best mom ever to her 4 year old son Maximo.

On June 8th, Cara was admitted to the Kingston General Hospital unresponsive as she suffered a catastrophic brain injury due to domestic violence. She was taken care of by the amazing doctors, nurses, and social workers there, who went above and beyond to make sure Cara was comfortable in her final hours. Unfortunately, due to the brain damage Cara sustained, her family came to the tough decision to take her off life support. She was surrounded by her closest family and friends in her final hours and moments, with her sister May never leaving her side.

As we all try and grieve for our Cara, we are thinking of Maximo, and how he will now grow up without his mother. Cara was an amazing Mother and provided a ton and love to her son and worked hard to ensure he was growing up happy and healthy.

This fund was set up by her closest friends along with her ACCRA family, where Cara worked for the last 7 years. Funds generated will be used to set up an educational trust for Max that he will be able to access when it is needed. Cara will be missed deeply.

We will all miss Cara's spunk, smile, the phone calls that would last forever, her unwavering friendship, and more than anything, her big infectious laugh.

Everyone who knew Cara loved her and became a friend right away.

With her passing, she leaves a hole in everyone's hearts that will be impossible to fill.

This is our opportunity to give back and help fulfill Cara’s dream of a wonderful life for Max..
