This morning on GMA, Kellie shared a video of her having her head shaved alongside friend Summer Holt Miller. Summer is fighting breast cancer and Kellie wanted to show her support as well as raise awareness for early detection.

“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.

What a generous, loving act of friendship!
