Graffiti Bridge Honors Flight Medic Who Lost Battle to Cancer

— Kara Zaremba worked as a paramedic, a flight medic and a training instructor before losing her battle with ovarian cancer.

PENSACOLA, Fla. — A paramedic’s life was honored with an art display after she lost her battle to cancer.

Escambia County first responders gathered at Graffiti Bridge, which was painted in honor of Kara Zaremba, who was a paramedic, a flight medic and a training instructor before losing her battle with cancer Nov. 27.

“When we come together, when we lose one of our own, it takes a piece out of us all and to see everyone come together like this, it’s normal for us. Kara would have loved this,” Kara’s co-worker, Gigi Owens, said.
