Here is an usual photograph of a father and his son who both seem to have the same shape of scar on their scalps! “Josh Marshall” and his son “Gabriel” are shown in this photo. “Gabriel” recently had successful surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his brain which left a prominent scar on his scalp so Josh wanted to express his solidarity and support for his son by getting a tattoo that perfectly matched his son’s scar!

A father’s love.

Gabriel experienced a difficult period of chemotherapy prior to the surgery which left him bald so the surgical scar was very conspicuous and made the young boy very self-conscious.
