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.
