Kellie Pickler appeared on Good Morning America earlier today to help kick off “GMA Goes Pink” in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
By her side this morning was one of Kellie’s best friends, Summer. Summer was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, and Kellie had joined her friend in shaving her head in support and solidarity. Over a year later, we are so happy that Summer is doing well now. Kellie posted on her Facebook page that Summer has a few rounds of chemotherapy left, but is cancer free! Amazing news… stay strong, Summer!
Breast Cancer awareness is a cause near and dear to my heart. My amazing mom passed away from this terrible disease in July so this is all very personal to me.
Kellie is and always has been a class act, and she has all of our respect. Thank-you Kellie and GMA for helping to bring awareness!
Watch Kellie’s GMA appearance and performance of “Someone Somewhere Tonight” below. The song will be included on her new album, The Woman I Am, which drops on November 11th.
For all of the Breast Cancer fighters and survivors out there, you are amazingly strong & keep fighting!
