George H.W. Bush shaves head for 2-year-old cancer patient

Former President George H.W. Bush shaved his head on Tuesday, supporting a two-year-old with leukemia whose father is part of the 89-year-old's Secret Service detail.

Members of the Bush Protective Division began removing their hair last week in solidarity with Patrick, who was diagnosed with leukemia last spring, Bush's spokesperson Jim McGrath told

Bush said "it was very easy for him to do," McGrath said.

Patrick's prognosis is "good," but his treatment and illness carry a special place in Bush's heart as his daughter Robin died of the same blood disease in 1953 when she was three.

His Secret Service members have organized a website and 50-mile motorcycle ride through Maine - where Bush resides - to help pay for Patrick's medical bills.

Way to go, Mr. President! I'm glad that Patrick's prognosis is so good.

That was cool of him to do. It cracks me up that when you look at the story on any site that allows comments how people try to politicize this.

It is sad that some people lost the ability to say "that was a nice thing" instead of somehow getting angry about it.

Excellent title.

I work with a Secret Service agent who speaks very highly of both Bush's and Clinton as protectees, but the senior Bush gets superlative marks as being a total class act.

Very cool.

Interesting also the comment about putting together a fund raiser to help pay for treatment. Sort of debunks the "myth" that goverment workers have it made with respect to benefits.

I prefer my bush to have a good 'fro. I'm old-fashioned that way.

Wait... what...

How come Bush the Greater is in a wheelchair?

Just old age, or did her have surgery or something?

Re: Shaved Bush pic

It's a nice gesture by Bush and I hope they do well with their fund-raising, but a motorcycle ride? Really? Usually they have running, biking, or at least walking - something that takes some effort.

They might as well do it with cars. Cruise for the Cure™

He's really frail. Check out some video clips or interviews with him. I don't expect him to last much longer.
