Clean Slate Laser, a White Plains-based tattoo-removal center, in its “Erase Cancer” effort recently announced that it will now offer complimentary radiation tattoo removal for patients who have undergone treatment for cancer.

Most of us know someone who has dealt with cancer in the past, and so we know how challenging it can be for patients. This is our small way of doing what we can to help out those who would like to move on after their cancer treatments.

As part of common radiation treatments for various types of cancer, physicians use tattoos to pinpoint the areas of a patient’s body that have been treated. These are just like any other type of tattoo, lasting the individual’s entire life unless removed. The new “Erase Cancer” courtesy service was the idea of Clean Slate Laser owner and founder Mary Garnett, who is the daughter of a breast cancer survivor.

“We are very pleased to offer this no-cost service to those who’ve had difficult battles with cancer,” said Garnett. “Most of us know someone who has dealt with cancer in the past, and so we know how challenging it can be for patients. This is our small way of doing what we can to help out those who would like to move on after their cancer treatments.”

While some cancer survivors think of these tattoos as points of pride after a tough battle, many others prefer to have them removed so that they do not have a daily reminder of the experience. The removal of the tattoos can also signify that one has moved on after cancer and returned to their normal lives.

To take advantage of the free offer, patients must provide a letter from their radiation oncologist that gives permission to participate in the program. And although Clean Slate Laser is announcing the launch of the service in October with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it will be an ongoing program after the month is over.

“Every person’s experience with cancer is different, and all survivors should get to decide if they want to keep their radiation tattoos or not,” said Garnett. “If they do decide to get them removed, our goal is to make it as easy as possible for them to do so.”
