Contrary to the way I'd like it to be, bad things happen to awesome people. Yesterday it came out that Actor and designer Tara Subkoff has a brain tumor. Luckily, the tumor is benign, but can be lethal if not removed, so Tara will be undergoing surgery this summer.
Tara Subkoff is known for her Immitation of Christ clothing line, as well as integrating re-used clothing in to designs (before it was cool), and has also acted in over 20 movies.
According to Stylelist, the recovery will take about a year, during which Tara will be unable to work. To help her get through the surgery and recovery, Tara's friends have planned a silent art auction benefit for July 15th. Anyone interested in providing monetary support or donations for the auction has been asked to contact firstname.lastname@example.org, and checks can be made out to NYFA and sent to the following address.
