President George H. W. Bush shaved his head Wednesday in support of Patrick, the 2-year-old son of a member of his Secret Service team.

Bush, along with the other members of his security team, went bald to show his solidarity with Patrick as he fights leukemia. Patrick was diagnosed this spring and his doctors say that his prognosis is positive, according to his website, Patrick’sPals.org.

Jim McGrath, Bush’s spokesman, tweeted pictures of Patrick and his “pals.”



McGrath also tweeted a picture of the former president matching with the little guy.
