Former President George H. W. Bush has shaved his head to match a 2-year-old boy who is suffering from leukemia and losing his hair due to chemo treatments. The child's father is a member of Former President Bush's secret service team. It is being reported that other members of Former President Bush's secret service started shaving their heads for the child, who is being identified as Patrick.
Patrick was diagnosed last spring and his prognosis is "good". The Former President and his wife had a daughter that died of the same disease in 1953.
