Country songstress Kellie Pickler recently shaved her head in support of her best friend, Summer Miller, after she was diagnosed with breast cancer this past June. Summer recently underwent a double mastectomy, and is set to start chemotherapy this week. Wanting to bring attention and awareness about the importance of early detection, the two friends decided to shave their heads.
"Cancer does not discriminate. 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" -Pickler and Miller
