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


    Bush (seated in wheelchair) and his security team with Patrick.




    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 CBSNews.com.

    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.

    I have a soft spot for Bush, Sr. I watched an interview Barbara gave last year to their granddaughter Jenna about what it was like losing Robin and it cracked my cold heart.

    Not many even former politicians would do this. I think it was very brave and good for him.

    That's a really lovely thing to do, he looks like excellent craic too.

    I also love that its bringing more awareness to leukemia, the more people aware of it the more people will get themselves onto a bone marrow/stem cell register and the more lives will be saved. UK people - if it's something you're interested in: Anthony Nolan | UK blood cancer charity | Anthony Nolan run a national bone marrow register

    My BFF and I were staggering back to her place on New Year's Day at about 9.00 am, we'd been to a huge party and had stopped at Rushcutters Bay park to lay on the grass and look at the sky while we came down off ecstasy. We were fully tarted up in hot pants, sparkly midriff tops etc (this was the 90s and new year is the middle of our summer) and as we trudged back up the hill I wondered why there were no cars on the road. Suddenly a convoy of limos came around the corner and all these men were waving at us, then we saw GB leaning out the window of one of the cars waving and yelling "happy new year girls!" Apparently he'd been jogging or golfing or something and probably thought we were out exercising enjoying the beautiful weather, not realising we were totally trashed and heading home.
