President George HW Bush has shaved his head to show his support for a Secret Service member's 2-year old son.
2-year old Patrick was diagnosed with Leukemia this past spring and is currently undergoing treatment. The treatment has caused him to lose his hair, so Bush 41 and other members of his Secret Service detail, including Patrick's dad, have shaved their heads in solidarity with Patrick.
This is a cause near to the Bush family as their daughter Robin died when she was four from leukemia.
On a website created by Patrick's family, they say Patrick's prognosis is very positive, but there will be many years of treatment ahead.
A link to Patrick's website can be found below.
