Former President George H.W. Bush Shaved Head for Child With Cancer

Office of George Bush

Regardless of your politics, you have to admit this is a class move by former President George H.W. Bush. 

When President Bush found out that Patrick, the two-year-old son of one of his Secret Service guards, had leukemia, he decided to show his support by shaving his head. Other members of his Secret Service have also shaved their heads. In addition, the Bush family has also made a donation to Patrick’s treatment.

President Bush and his wife Barbara lost their second child, Robin, to leukemia sixty years ago, so Patrick’s illness obviously struck a chord. Since Robin’s death, the Bush family has worked to raise money for leukemia and cancer research. Today, an adolescent and child clinic at a cancer center in Houston, Texas, is named after Robin.
