The Day That Changed My Life - A Courageous Show of Support by Former President George H. W. Bush

A child diagnosed with cancer is one that really hits the core. No one wants to see a child suffer and having to fight or face a disease known to have high death rates. It can really be a bit too much to bare for all involved. On the bright side of life, there are many heart wrenching moments where a community comes together to raise awareness and funds in support of those diagnosed with cancer.

As we all know, every child is important, special and unique. Each child who has been diagnosed with cancer deserves the love and support of everyone who can and are willing to help. One young boy Patrick has the support of a former President of the United States. The senior President George H.W. Bush, a parent who was also touched by the loss of his four year old daughter to leukemia, made a courageous and thoughtful move in shaving his head along with some very brave and wonderful Secret Service men on his team. Can you pass the box of tissues? Makes you want to shave your head too, doesn't it?

While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
