Former President George H.W. Bush and members of his Secret Service Protective Detail shaved their heads this week to support a little 2-year old boy battling leukemia.

Patrick, the young son of one of Bush 41’s Secret Service detail, lost his hair receiving treatment for leukemia.

When Bush, 89, saw members of his detail going bald, he shaved his own head Wednesday in a show of solidarity.

The former president and wife Barbara “lost their infant daughter Robin to leukemia 60 years ago this October,” USA Today reported.

Members of Bush’s Protective Detail started a website to help Patrick’s family with medical expenses, the article said.

The website, Patrick’s Pals, published pictures of Bush, his detail and Patrick and thanked the Bush’s for “their generosity and concern” for this young hero.
