Kathy Griffin has had a rough past few months. After a brief hiatus from the public eye following her controversial photo shoot holding a mock Donald Trump severed head, she has returned to the spotlight, but this time without her signature ginger locks.
Yesterday, writer Yashar Ali tweeted two photos of Griffin with a completely shaved head. She got her new ‘do in support of her sister, Joyce, who is currently going through chemotherapy following a cancer diagnosis.
"In solidarity with her sister, who is going through chemo, @kathygriffin shaved her head," Ali wrote before providing the link to donate to the American Cancer Society.
The first photo features Griffin sitting next to her mother, Maggie, who is shown gasping and resting her hand on her daughter’s head. The other image is of Griffin touching her bald head and smiling broadly.
Maggie — who is no stranger to social media — retweeted the photos with the caption: "My daughter Kathleen Mary is a wonderful human being."

Unfortunately, this isn’t Griffin’s first run-in with a sibling’s cancer diagnosis. Her brother Gary died of esophageal cancer in 2014. But if the smile on Griffin’s newly-shorn head is any indication, she’s not ready to give up hope anytime soon.
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.
We wish Joyce all the best and a speedy recovery.
