NEW YORK — A New York woman is giving a tattoo to support a local charity that aims to increase awareness of cancer in children.

Nudist photographer Sara Teweke and her wife are raising money to help with cancer research, a local newspaper reported.

Tewekes sister, Heather, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a rare, aggressive form of the disease that can spread to the lungs and brain.

She had two children at the time, but was diagnosed and put on chemo and radiation in 2012.

In 2014, the couple was diagnosed for the first time with Hodgkins lymphoma.

The couple’s cancer-related expenses have topped $1 million, according to a press release.

With funding from Tewes sister, they are planning to donate their own money to the Children’s Cancer Research Foundation, which will help support their medical costs.

It’s an unusual request for Tewehkes sister to make, according with a spokesman.

“But the money is there,” he said.

“The funds have been donated by the couple and are being used for other charities that they care about.”

The tattoo was done by artist Sarah Riedel in Brooklyn.
