George H.W. Bush shares new photo of boy he shaved head for

Three years after shaving his head to show support for a toddler battling leukemia, Former President George H.W. Bush says that same boy "is feeling and doing much better."

The 92-year-old Bush provided an update and a new picture of him with the boy on his Twitter account Monday . The boy is the son of a Secret Service agent and has been identified only as Patrick.

Bush shared a picture in July of 2013 of himself with a freshly shaved head and the then 2-year-old, who had lost his hair due to leukemia treatment, sitting on his lap. Both Bush and the boy have hair in the new photo.

George and Barbara Bush lost their second child, 4-year-old Robin Bush, to leukemia in 1953.
