Dad Of The Year Gets Head Tattoo To Match His Son’s Surgery Scar

This man just won Father’s Day and every other day of parenting in our book.

Josh Marshall entered a Father’s Day contest for #BestBaldDad, which the children’s cancer charity St. Baldrick’s Foundation runs. Was there any doubt that he would be victorious in the friendly competition among dads who shaved their heads to support their kids who have the illness?

The Kansas dad submitted a photo that showed the tattoo he got to match his son Gabriel’s cancer surgery scar. ABC News reports Marshall got the ink done in August 2015, telling his son beforehand, “You know what, I’ll get your scar tattooed. That way, if people want to stare at you, then they can stare at both of us.” 

Gabriel was diagnosed with a rare brain cancer in March 2015. The surgery and treatment to battle the tumor left him bald with a scar, the news outlet reported.

The elder Marshall told BuzzFeed that while some of the tumor remains, his 8-year-old son’s recent scans have been “stable.”

“He’s been doing good and he’s been off treatment about nine months now,” Marshall said.

The social media response overwhelmed him and Marshall expressed his gratitude in a Facebook post on Sunday.

Way to go, Dad!
