In March 2015, Gabriel was diagnosed with a form of cancer called anaplastic astrocytoma, a rare malignant brain tumour.

But Gabriel felt like a monster due to a scar on his head as a result of the surgery.

“This broke my heart,” Marshall said. The doting father’s solution was to get a tattoo that resembled his son’s scar. “I told him if people wanted to stare, they could stare at both of us,” he said.
