Kellie Pickler has always been known for her very outgoing and bubbly personality. What many may have not known about her though, is what a loyal friend she is.
She proved this characteristic to the World this morning when she appeared on Good Morning America with a completely shaved head. Kellie chose to cut off her blonde hair in support of her best friend, Summer Holt Miller, who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this summer at the young age of 36.
Summer is about to start chemotherapy treatments tomorrow and decided that instead of waiting for her hair to fall out, she would shave her head to spare herself the stress of actually seeing it on her pillow.
Kellie Pickler has stated that although the main reason for shaving her head is to support her friend through this difficult time, she is also doing it so that it will push women to get a mammogram before the age of 40. For a long time, 40 years old has been the recommended age to start getting mammograms, but as of late, more and more instances of breast cancer are occurring in women under the age of 40.
We all wish Summer well and hope that she continues to be strong!
