Country singer and American Idol alumni Kellie Pickler shaves her head in a new video from Good Morning America on Wednesday. Kellie Pickler shaved her head in support of friend Summer Miller, 36, who is battling breast cancer.
Pickler’s friend Summer Miller underwent a double mastectomy and is about to begin chemotherapy, which often results in total hair loss. Miller decided to shave her head rather than have her hair most likely fall out, and Kellie Pickler shaved her head at the same time to show her support.
In a video aired on Good Morning America on Wednesday, Kellie Pickler shaved her head in solidarity with friend Summer Miller. Pickler told Good Morning America she hopes her action will help inspire young women to be educated about the power of early mammograms.
“Cancer does not discriminate,” Kellie Pickler told Good Morning America. “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,” Miller added.
Bravo Kellie, bravo.
