Pickler Shaves Head In Support Of Cancer-diagnosed Friend
Kellie Pickler shaves head? Yep, you read it correctly. We here are Contactmusic.com are offering the most hearty of props to Kellie Pickler after the singer showed her public support for best friend Summer Holt Miller's recent cancer battle by shaving her hair off. Known for her long blonde locks, Pickler had no qualms about getting rid of them as her friend went through the same process. She debuted the look this morning (September 5th) on the TV show Good Morning America.
Taking to Twitter to talk about the cancer of her friend, Pickler wrote "Cancer does not discriminate," explaining the motive behind her hair cut. "If this compels even one person to change their mentality toward waiting until the age of 40 for their mammogram, then it will be worth it," added Miller, who recently underwent a double mastectomy.
Miller, 36, had reportedly had always been aware that her family had a history of breast cancer, and as such had always been cautious about self-examinations. Eventually however she asked her doctor for a mammogram, which is when the tumor was detected in its early stage. There's good news though, because she was declared cancer-free in August, and will undergo chemotherapy treatments tomorrow (September 6th) so as to make sure that it doesn't return.
