GOOD NEWS Awesome Dad Gets Tattoo on His Head to Match Son's Cancer Surgery Scar
Many people are calling Josh Marshall the best dad ever for the unique way that he's supporting his son with brain cancer.
Gabriel Marshall, now 8 years old, has had multiple surgeries to remove tumors from his brain.
His father Josh said the scarring on his hairless head made the boy self-conscious and feel like a "monster."
So in order to make him feel not alone, he got a tattoo that realistically matches the C-shaped scar.
Josh submitted a picture of the two of them to a St. Baldrick's #BestBaldDad photo competition, with the caption, "Got my son’s scar tattooed to help his self confidence.”
They won the prize, of course, and when the photo was shared on popular social media accounts, it exploded.
According to BuzzfeedNews, Gabriel loves his dad's tattoo and said it makes them “twins.”
Josh said his son is doing well, and while some of the tumor remains, scans show it has not grown, according to ABC News.
