Kellie Pickler Shaves Head in Support of Pal Battling Breast Cancer (PHOTO)
Kellie Pickler buzzed off her blonde locks in a show of support for her lifelong friend, Summer Holt Miller, who has been battling breast cancer since a June dianosis.
The country singer appeared alongside her pal in a clip on Good Morning America, which saw the best friends go bald together in Nashville, Tenn.
What did Pickler have to say about her act of solidarity?
“Cancer does not discriminate,” the American Idol alum told viewers.
“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,” echoed Miller, who has undergone a double mastectomy and will begin chemotherapy Wednesday.
Pickler — who is married to songwriter Kyle Jacobs — has been best friends with Miller since the two met as children in a beauty pageant.
“Today was one of the most incredible days of my life,” Pickler wrote on Facebook after buzzing her blonde locks.
