Tears, radiation, chemotherapy, seizures, and relationships changed Joseph Fulton's life in ways that he never expected. "Scarred" handles Fulton's struggle to accept his cancer diagnosis, his search for meaning, and deep topics dealing with his faith. He often questions God's punishment or wonders why he has been put him through this adversity. Cancer can either defeat him or make him stronger. Joseph's determination to be positive and live a normal life as much as possible shows his refusal to let cancer win. For the time he has left, whether it be one more day or a hundred years, Joseph wants to make the most he can by inspiring others.
