On the night of Friday, September 3, 2011, life as Cara Moro knew it changed forever. While doing a cheerleading stunt with a friend, Cara fell and broke her back. She was rushed into surgery and cared for by the Shands medical team, but sadly the tragic accident left her paralyzed from the waist down.
Anyone that knows Cara would describe her as loving, fun, and full of energy. As a 19-year old sophomore at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida, Cara was studying to be a nurse and preparing to transfer into the University of Florida where she would finish her degree. Cara loves spending time outside, especially jet skiing at the lake with her family or swimming and laying out at New Smyrna Beach. This injury has left her trying to relearn how to do all of the things she once enjoyed so much.

It gets easier, just don't give up. I got hurt 9 years ago. Don't ever let yourself just lie in bed. You're in my thoughts. If I can help by way if advice, look me up, I'm on this site, too. Hang tough!

Hi Cara, I just happened to come across your website as I was looking up Windy Hill Ranch in Apopka. We live in Tavares. I went to Sante Fe College too...but many years ago :) I just want you to know that I feel God has put you in my path for a reason. I will be praying for you with all my heart! I would love to know how you are doing now. It looks like the website only went to Oct. 16th, 2103?...and I thought it was funny that today is Oct. 16th, 2015. Whether I hear from you or not, my prayers are with you! :) This is my email: [email protected]
