Remembering Linda Brown Cochran

On September 29, we lost a mother, wife, sister, friend and colleague in the passing of Linda Brown Cochran, daughter of Ernest and Betty Brown. 

In 2014, Linda was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a cancer that affects plasma cells in the blood. She credited her doctors at the Cleveland Clinic with saving her life, and keeping her with us in spite of what was initially a stage-4 diagnosis. In the hours and days she spent at the Taussig Cancer Institute, Linda discovered an informal lending library system, where patients would bring books they'd read and exchange for new reads -- a way to while away the hours spent taking chemotherapy treatments and waiting for an endless stream of appointments. Funds donated here will raise money to make a donation to Taussig in Linda's memory.

Linda was a star, not just in the way her spirit sparkled but in the way that she pulled others into her orbit and kept them there in her glow. We appreciate your donation to help preserve her brilliance and help others find the treatment they need to beat cancer.
