Former President George H.W. Bush Shaves Head In Solidarity With Cancer Patient

Mightn’t agree with his politics, but his heart is in the right place.

Former President George H.W. Bush shaved his head this week in solidarity with 2 year-old Patrick, the son of a member of his Secret Service detail, who is undergoing treatment for leukemia.

Bush’s office released photos of Bush with a bare head Wednesday holding Patrick while sitting in his wheelchair. The 89 year-old former Commander-in-Chief also posed with members of his security detail, known as the Bush Protective Division, who  shaved their heads in solidarity with their colleague’s son. Agents have organized a motorcycle benefit run next month to assist Patrick and his family with his medical bills, a cause to which President and Mrs. Bush have already donated, according to a spokesman.

The Bushes lost their first daughter, Robin, to leukemia at the age of four 59 years ago.
