T.S. Claire Rally Against Cancer

11:11 AM PST on February 18, 2016

We at L.A. TACO are helping spread the word to help out the talented Los Angeles artist T.S. Claire aka Tfail. Christmas Eve 2015 she was diagnosed with cancer. We at L.A. TACO want to thank you for reading and helping spread the word to help out this local talent. Please read the wording below by Haunted Euth about her GoFundMe page:


Tfail was diagnosed with cancer on Christmas Eve, 2015. Like the trooper that she is, she's fighting this disease with no worries, fear or hesitation. She has remained positive post diagnosis, continued creating and has never looked back. That being said, she has a long journey ahead of her and her medical bills are stacking up. For this reason I have started a gofundme for Tina which is linked above and below. Please take a moment to look, and if you can, donate. Everything helps here, including SHARING this link to raise awareness of her fight. Please stay positive and strong for her, it's what she wants - life, love and light will see her through this. Keep her in your prayers and believe in her, she will beat this!


Also helping with this is our friends at, by purchasing this pin all proceeds earned from the sale will go towards T.S. Claire's medical bills and other costs incurred during this difficult time. Here is a link to the site for this pin,

Thank you again to our LATACO readers for taking the time to read this page. Our thoughts and prayers are with you TFAIL! Keep strong!
