Father and Son have Matching Heart Scars

Kiedis Dickson is 9-years-old and he's spent his life in and out of hospitals. 

He's about to have his seventh major surgery. It's his second open-heart surgery, and it'll leave some gnarly scars.

But while his dad Adam can't take away the pain, he's determined to show his son he doesn't have to go through it alone.

Adam now has a permanent reminder of his bond with his son after getting a major scar tattoed on his own chest, so the pair can match. 

"He's had every needle, every finger prick," said Keidis.

"Everything that I've had except open heart surgery cause he can't have that obviously."

Adam says the tattoo is about showing he will always be there for his son.
