Tara Simantel Parla
Beautiful, isn't she?
Tara was diagnosed with stage III melanoma in 2010. This week, Tara peacefully passed away.
After being diagnosed, Tara was determined to save children from the risks of skin cancer. Since prevention is key, she began The Passion Foundation. Tara raised money in order to provide a shady spot on the playground of elementary schools in Florida!
I didn't know Tara personally. We, unfortunately, only spoke a handful of times; however, I wanted to share her foundation with my readers in hope that we can continue her desire. Let's protect the kiddos in honor of this beautiful woman.
Thoughts are with Tara's family and friends.
Protect the skin you're in. <3
