No, former President George H.W. Bush has not lost all his hair — he shaved it, for a good cause.

The elder Bush cut his hair to show support for Patrick, the 2-year-old son of one of his Secret Service agents. Patrick is being treated for leukemia and started losing his hair.

Many of Bush's security team members went bald in support for the toddler, too, and Bush decided to join in solidarity.

Bush, 89, and his wife, Barbara, have also helped Patrick in the past. They donated to Patrick's Pals, a fund designed to assist with Patrick's medical bills. The Bushes lost their second child, Robin, to cancer almost 60 years ago.
