Former President George H.W. Bush Shaves His Head in a Show of Support for Leukemia Patient [VIDEO]
What a great story! I’ve heard that shaving your head is the new combover. I also feel pretty sure that doesn’t matter a bit to former President George H.W. Bush.
A member of President Bush’s security has a 2-year-old son named Patrick and Patrick has leukemia. According to a Bush spokesman, the boy has lost almost all of his hair due to radiation treatments.
So, in a show of solidarity, the 89-year-old former chief executive decided to shave his head. Mr. Bush got the idea after noticing that members of his Secret Service detail–they’re called the Bush Protective Division–had also shaved their heads in support of young Patrick.
President Bush has also launched a website to help with Patrick’s medical bills.
It’s called patrickspals.org.
