Former U-S president George H.W. Bush has shaved his head to show solidarity with the sick child of a Secret Service agent.

The 89-year-old decided to go bald, after he saw members of his Secret Service detail with newly shaved heads to show support for the two-year-old son of an agent.

The child, identified only as Patrick, is undergoing treatment for leukemia and is losing his hair as a result.

The older Bush’s decision may be rooted in a personal tragedy.  George and Barbara Bush lost their second child, four-year-old Robin Bush, to leukemia almost 60 years ago.
