Country Star Shaves Head for Friend

Former American Idol contestant, Kellie Pickler, is sporting a new style, and all for a good cause.

The young country star buzzed her hair in solidarity with her good friend who is battling breast cancer and is about to start chemotherapy.

According to Pickler's Facebook page, the two have known each other since childhood and Kellie refers to her friend, Summer Miller, as her sister.

Miller has a history of breast cancer in her family, but thanks to monitoring by her doctor, they were able to detect a tumor in its early stages.{}
