How One Amazing Dad’s Tattoo Is Raising Awareness for Childhood Cancers

He did this to support his son and he did a scar in a shape of horseshoe tattoo. This scar is placed above the right ear and it is the same as his son Gabriel has due to the surgery. Marshall said to his son that people will always stare but now they will stare at both of them, as reported by ABC news.

St. Baldrick’s Foundation put on an event in which Marshall decided to shave his head, and it is an organization which supplies research focused on curing childhood cancers. In these head-shaving events, volunteers cut off their hair in order to raise awareness and money for the kids suffering from carcinogenic conditions. St. Baldrick’s are very popular for these services.

The organization created a contest named the #BestBaldDad on Father’s Day in order to celebrate with the men who shaved their head to support their children. Marshall won the first place with 5,000 deserved votes this year.

The photo above is from the St. Baldrick’s event in Wichita, Kansas gathered this year where the #BestBaldDad winner said he got his scar tattoo in order to help his son with his self confidence.
