Singer Kellie Pickler has shaved her head in support of her best friend, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

Doctors discovered a tumour in Summer Holt Miller's breast in June, but she was declared cancer-free last month after undergoing a double mastectomy.

She is due to begin a round of chemotherapy on Thursday to ensure the potentially-fatal disease does not return, and now the American Idol star has joined the 36 year old in buzzing off her hair to celebrate her success and unbelievable courage.

The country singer debuted her new look during a video clip on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America on Wednesday, later reminding fans of the importance in getting regular check-ups, saying, "Cancer does not discriminate."
