Bald & Beautiful: Kathy Griffin Shaves Her Head in Support of Sister’s Battle with Cancer
Kathy Griffin put her jokes aside and shaved her head as a touching act of love, support and solidarity for her sister, Joyce Griffin, and her battle with cancer.
On Monday, journalist Yashar Ali flooded social media with photos of Kathy’s new look, writing, “In solidarity with her sister, who is going through chemo, @kathygriffin shaved her head. Donate to @AmericanCancer,” along with a link to donate.
In one photo, Kathy stands topless in front of a hedge and holds her hand against her newly buzzed head. The other snap features the comedian posing with her mother, Maggie Griffin, who appears pleasantly surprised by Kathy's new look. “My daughter Kathleen Mary is a wonderful human being,” Maggie wrote on Twitter.
This is not the first time the Griffin family banded together to come to grips with a familial cancer diagnosis. Kathy's older brother, Gary Griffin, sadly lost his battle with esophageal cancer in 2014.
Our hearts go out to the strong and beautiful family.
