George H.W. Bush shaves head in solidarity with 2-year-old leukemia patient
If you've ever wondered what George H.W. Bush would look like with a shaved head, here’s your answer. Distinguished yet rugged, no? Kind of like Bryan Cranston on “Breaking Bad” plus a few more decades?
The 41st president took up the razor this week to join several members of his Secret Service detail who bared their scalp in solidarity with an agent’s 2-year-old son, who has lost his hair during treatment for leukemia. (Funds for his treatment are being raised via several events at www.patrickspals.org) Bush posed here with the boy, identified only as Patrick for the family’s privacy. It’s a cause close to his heart: Bush and his wife Barbara lost their daughter Robin to the disease at age 4 in 1953.
