Josh Marshall lives with his wife and two kids in Kansas. In March of last year, he and his wife receive news that no parent wants to hear: His 8-year-old son, Gabriel, is diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.
The good news is that the tumor was easily removed with surgery and Gabriel is now stable. But the surgery left him with a very obvious scar on the side of his head. When Gabriel told his dad that it made him feel like a monster, his heart broke.
So, Josh thought of something to make his son feel a little better. He went out and got a tattoo that looked just like Gabriel's scar in the exact same spot. “I told him if people wanted to stare, they could stare at both of us,” Josh explained.
