Kelly Pickler Buzzes Hair for Breast Cancer

From Music City USA News:   Kellie Pickler has stood beside her best friend—a childhoodfriend who Pickler refers to as her “sister”—Summer Holt Miller throughout her breast cancer prognosis and subsequent treatment since receiving word of the diagnosis in June of this year, but yesterday in Nashville, Tenn., the inseparable duo took their stance against cancer one step further when they both buzzed their hair to bring awareness to the importance of early detection.As revealed on ABC’s Good Morning America exclusively, Pickler and Miller shared their story as Miller was just 36 years old when she received word of her diagnosis. “Cancer does not discriminate,” an emphatic Pickler shared with viewers. “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 echoed.
Miller, aware of her family’s history of breast cancer, had always been super cautious with her self-examinations, but had the mother of two not been diligent with her doctor and requested a mammogram, the tumor detected in its early stage could have turned fatal. Miller recently underwent a double mastectomy and will begin chemotherapy this Thursday.
