On September 5th, Kellie Pickler shaved her head to support a childhood friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer. In a statement on Kellie Pickler's Facebook Page, she told her friends story.
"Kellie has stood beside her best friend-a childhood friend 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."

Last night, Kellie co-hosted 'Anderson Live' with Anderson Cooper and took a moment to talk about why she decided to shave her head and how Summer is doing.
