Several months ago, a woman in South Africa named Gerdi McKenna got diagnosed with breast cancer and started chemo. She lost all of her hair, which is obviously harder for a WOMAN than a man.
But Gerdi . . . who looks to be in her early 40's . . . didn't have to do it alone. Because last month, one of her friends organized a surprise party for her.
And on the morning of February 24th, her two sisters, her mom, and seven of her best friends went to a salon . . . and all had their HEADS SHAVED.
When Gerdi showed up at the party, they were all wearing hats. Then they took them off at the same time . . . and she broke down in tears.
There's video of the whole thing, and in the last week, it's been viewed about EIGHT MILLION times. Just Google "Anything for Love." (It's in Afrikaans, but it's subtitled. One woman got her hair cut, but didn't shave it all off.)
One of her friends explained that shaving her head was nerve-racking, but she knows that her friend "is going through much, much more." And all of the hair was donated to the Cancer Association of South Africa. (Metro / Huffington Post)
