Erase-Cancer.org – Free Removal of Radiation Tattoos for Cancer Survivors
For the 7th consecutive year, Clean Slate Laser, a NY/NJ based tattoo removal chain, is offering free removal of radiation tattoos to cancer survivors.
During cancer radiation treatments, it is common for physicians to tattoo small dots on a patient’s body to pinpoint where they have been treated. These are just like any other tattoos, lasting the individual’s entire life unless removed. The “Erase-Cancer.org” free service was the idea of Clean Slate Laser founder, Mary Garnett, who is the daughter of a breast cancer survivor.
“We are thrilled to offer this free service to people who’ve already been through so much. Most of us have watched people who we care about struggle with the physical and emotional pain of cancer. This is our small way of giving back to the cause.” – Mary Garnett
Some survivors view these radiation tattoos as as a badge of honor, however, others find them to be a daily reminder of an excruciating time in their lives that they’d rather forget.
If you or a loved one has radiation tattoos that you’d like us to remove, please first speak with your Oncologist to obtain clearance. Although Clean Slate Laser heavily promotes this program in October with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Erase-Cancer.org remains an ongoing program and free service all year long.
Clean Slate Laser has laser centers in White Plains, Manhattan, Huntington Long Island, Staten Island and Wayne NJ. To learn more, visit www.cleanslatelaser.com.
