George H.W. Bush Shaved His Head to Support a Two-Year-Old with Cancer
George H.W. Bush is 89 and he just completely shaved his head. He did it to show solidarity with a two-year-old boy with leukemia, named Patrick.

Patrick's dad is on Bush's Secret Service security detail and he's currently undergoing chemo to treat his leukemia, so he's bald and all the members of Bush's Secret Service team shaved their heads to support him too.

Regardless of your political beliefs, you have to admire Bush for showing solidarity for his family.
George and Barbara Bush lost their first daughter to leukemia 60 years ago. Her name was Pauline. She was their second child, and she died at age four from leukemia.
As Tim McGraw was singing 'Live Like You Were Dying' at a recent concert, he noticed a woman in the front row, with a bald head. She was diagnosed with cancer 7 months ago, living the song he was performing. So Tim McAww bent over and kissed her head.
