Surviving cancer is a life-changing experience that leaves emotions marks of strength, courage, and dauntless spirit. Dr. Jennifer Kish believes that cancer survivors shouldn’t have to carry the physical tattoo marks from radiation therapy, as well. That is why she has become an enthusiastic participant in the New Beginnings: Radiation Mark Removal Program.
Cancer patients may have days or weeks of radiation therapy. It’s vital that each treatment be precisely aimed at the same spot to preserve healthy tissue and fight recurrence of the cancer. Radiation tattoos are skin markings that help the therapist aim radiation accurately. After treatment is completed, some patients wear these marks proudly as evidence of their victory, but most would prefer to lose those visual memories and enjoy flawless skin again.
New Beginnings: Radiation Mark Removal Program is a national campaign of philanthropic doctors who offer elimination of these skin markings, absolutely free of charge, for cancer patients. New Beginnings is organized by the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery, Inc. (ASLMS). Dr. Kish is one of only about 100 Board certified members of the ASLMS who have volunteered this emotionally significant service to cancer survivors.
The service is not limited to survivors of any certain type of cancer, and you need not be a prior client of Seriously Skin to take advantage of the offer. Dr. Kish encourages all cancer survivors to call Seriously Skin at (440) 499-7145 to schedule a consultation. Please be sure to bring a letter from your radiologist or oncologist approving Dr. Kish to remove your radiation tattoos.
