When Tara's dog Vishnu was diagnosed with stage 2 malignant oral melanoma and required major surgery to save his life, she created a FreeFunder fundraiser to help raise the money she needed. She broke down the specific costs for treatment, and let everyone know that the vet was very confident the procedure would be a success if the money was raised in time.
