Chandler Parsons visited a little boy with stage 4 cancer who is upset he doesn't look like his friends so Chandler shaved his head for him.— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) December 24, 2013
"The kid is so strong and so brave," [Chandler Parsons] says of Patrick. "Here I am going to see a podiatrist for an ingrown toenail and this kid is battling for his life. How he handles it is incredible. It’s similar to what we do: He tries to not look ahead and he tries to not look behind. He game plans for every single day and every day is a new day and a new challenge. He just tries to plan and do what he’s got to do for that day to survive."
Parsons showed off the new look on Instagram.
Update: Parsons shouted out Patrick on Twitter after the Rockets' Christmas win.
Merry Christmas Patrick, that was for you.— Chandler Parsons (@ChandlerParsons) December 26, 2013
