Fundraising with Ink


The family of one of our patients just did a really cool thing to raise some money for cancer research. The patient challenged a local radio celebrity to get a tattoo, and when he accepted the challenge, so did her parents and several other members of their family. Last week they all went to a local tattoo parlor and got tattoos. When he found out about my patient, the artist refused to accept any money for his work. Instead, all of that money was donated to a lab to support cancer research! How wonderful is that?

It's cool that money was raised. Wish the tattoo were not permanent. Glad the sentiment is.

My idea of a tattoo is nursing home instructions all down the front of me.

Awesome way to raise money for cancer! These kids need the funding for reasearch! Thank you to the Tattoo parlor for not accepting the money and donating their time and artistry!
