My best friend got diagnosed with Leukemia (AML to be specific) earlier this month and just got his head shaved because it was starting to fall out because of chemo. I was thinking of shaving my head to show him support. Should I?

If I had Leukemia, and my friend did that, I would only feel worse because then I would be the object of pity, and have my friends suffer the burden of shaving his head. Its an honorable gesture though.

No. It would look like you were trying to get attention for yourself too. Your friend is going through a very hard time, there is no room in this situation for dramatic gestures. Life is not a soap opera.

I think that that is an absoloutly fantastic idea.
It really shows how good a friend you are and how much you are willing to support him
I wish your friend good luck throughout their treatmeant :)
