Kellie Pickler has bid adieu to her blonde locks!
Unlike Britney Spears, the American Idol alum shaved her head to bring awareness to early cancer detection and support her best friend, Summer Holt Miller, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at only 36 years old.
Breast cancer runs in Summer's family and asked her doctor for a mammogram as soon as she felt something was wrong.
Unfortunately, they found a tumor, so she underwent a double mastectomy, and was declared cancer-free last month, but to ensure it won't come back, she's starting chemotherapy on Thursday.
Kellie explained to Good Morning America, "cancer does not discriminate", with Miller adding:
"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."
After shaving her head, Pickler tweeted it was a "life-changing day" and is thinking about being GI Jane for Halloween.
We love her attitude and how she's showing her support!
Sending love and light your way, Summer!
