Irish singer Daniel O'Donnell's wife is to shave her head as she prepares for chemotherapy treatment next month (Sep13).

Majella O'Donnell, who has often performed with the easy listening star, is recovering after undergoing a successful lumpectomy, but she is scheduled to undergo more treatment from 12 September (13), and the singer reveals she's up for the challenge and plans to cut her hair off.

The Danny Boy hitmaker explains, "At the minute she is cutting her hair. She is going to have it shaved. She doesn't want her hair to fall out. She decided she is going to take charge of her hair going. It's very short now and her next step after she has her first treatment she is going to get it all off."

O'Donnell has confirmed that reports suggesting his wife had been given the all-clear were incorrect, but revealed surgery had removed the disease. She must now undergo chemotherapy to improve her chances of staying cancer-free.
