Controversial comedian Kathy Griffin has chopped off her trademark red locks, but it’s all for a good cause.
Kathy cut off her hair to support her sister, Joyce, who is going through chemotherapy. A series of photos posted to Twitter show Kathy revealing her look to her mom, with the caption: “In solidarity with her sister, who is going through chemo, Kathy Griffin shaved her head.”
The Griffin family has not revealed what kind of cancer Joyce has, but sadly they have faced the illness before. This is actually Kathy’s second sibling to suffer from cancer- her older brother Gary passed away in 2014 at age 63 after a two-year battle with Stage 4 esophageal cancer. A heartbroken Kathy shared a tribute of her brother and his idol Joe Walsh in a post on Instagram.
This AM my brave brother Gary Griffin passed away in palliative care after a brutal struggle w cancer. Our last real conversation, w my brother I loved so much, was just a few days go when I got him this signed picture from his idol, @JoeWalsh. He loved the Eagles, 70s rock, The Chicago White Sox and the Xavier “muskies”… Oh & he was funny as sh*t.
Kathy’s been under fire recently after she posted a photo holding a severed head that was a replica of President Donald Trump. Reportedly, Kathy is no longer under federal investigation and the case is closed.
Kathy is one of many celebs who has publicly shared how cancer has affected them and their families. Actress Shannen Doherty shared her experience with breast cancer on her Instagram account and showed photos with her head shaved in addition to radiation treatment and CT scans.
