Kellie Pickler Shaves Her Head to Support Cancer Stricken Friend

Kellie Pickler has shaved her head in support of her pal Summer Holt Miller, 36, who was diagnosed with breast cancer back in June.

The 26-year-old singer appeared in a clip on Good Morning America with Summer, where the two shaved their heads together.

“Be sure to watch Good Morning America tomorrow morning (Sept 5th). You won’t want to miss this!!! ;) ” Kellie tweeted. “It’s been a great life-changing day.”

“Cancer does not discriminate,” Kellie said in a statement.

“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,” Summer also said.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Kellie Pickler’s decision to shave her head?

Saying “WHAT DO YOU THINK of Kellie Pickler’s decision to shave her head?” seems like kind of strange question! Good for Kellie for supporting someone she who means a lot to her :)

What a beautiful way to show support and to share the trauma of losing your hair to Chemo. It’s a huge deal for women and men alike. To see Anyone shave their head in support of the Fight Against Cancer is an Amazing sight to see. THANX TO EVERYONE SUPPORTING THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER!!!!!

Imagine if you had a friend that did this for you to show their support. It’s wonderful. :)

‘Tis a wonderful thing she is doing. My son had cancer in his mid-20′s and he said aside from the chemo, pain, etc. the worst thing was losing his hair and being totally bald. He was the youngest in the cancer support facility but said that the women especially were devastated by going bald. Something like this means so much to someone with cancer. Thank you Kelli for supporting your friend.

That really shows love and compassion. What an inspiration.

Both Kellie and Summer are glowing. What a great show of support!

Wow…and I think she looks great! Good for her.

that is so touching and refreshing when the music industry is all about looking pretty, shes gone and shown there are way more important things in life.

I hate cancer

A true and honest friend does this! My thoughts and prayers to this woman.
CYPRUS

Cancer doesn’t care if you’re black or white, rich or poor, short or tall, fat or thin, young or old, straight or not, married or not, boy or girl. It doesn’t discriminate. This is beautiful, no matter how many people do it won’t change how beautiful it is. The support and ability to show someone that they aren’t alone and that the hair doesn’t define you is something that will always be inspiring.

Mammograms hurt but it’s worth to have it done each year.

God bless them both .

What a kind gesture this is. It’s a terrible disease and the recovery depends to a great extent on the support of your close friends. I don’t know whether I’d have the courage to do this for my friend. However, I do my best to raise awareness as far as prevention is concerned and I’m very glad that more and more people support the organizations whose members are working hard every day to relieve the sufferings of cancer patients. This weekend is a perfect opportunity for all Torontonians to participate in the event called the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers taking place in our city. It’s one of the most important events of this month and I think all of us should show our support to those who really need it.
