Former President George H.W. Bush has gone bald.
Bush and members of his Secret Service detail shaved their heads this week in a show of support for 2-year-old Patrick, who was diagnosed with leukemia in the Spring. Patrick is the son of one of the Secret Service agents assigned to the former president. (The family’s last name has been withheld at the family’s request.)
According to a news release from Bush’s spokesman on Wednesday, Bush and his wife Barbara have also made a donation to help pay for Patrick’s medical bills.
The former president and first lady lost their second child, daughter Robin, to leukemia 60 years ago at the age of 4.
