Former President Bush Goes Bald to Support Child with Leukemia

Boy is son of secret service agent in his detail


Former US President George H W Bush has shaved his head to show support for a boy who has leukemia.

A Secret Service agent in his security detail has a two-year-old son who is losing his hair as a side-effect of treatment for the cancer.

The 89-year-old Republican lost his greying locks earlier this week at his coastal home in the state of Maine, said a spokesman on Wednesday.
