KENNEBUNKPORT, M.E. -

Former President George H.W. Bush showed his support for a 2-yr.-old boy battling Leukemia. 

At 89-years-old, the 41st president shaved his head in honor of the boy Patrick.  His father is a member of Bush's Secret Service detail.

The president also made a donation to Patrick's Pals, a website set up to help with the child's medical bills.

President and Mrs. Bush know first-hand the effects of the disease.  They lost their 4-yr.-old daughter Robin to Leukemia 60 years ago.
