On June 24, Keke Wyatt revealed to her fans and the public that one of her children is battling cancer. In a post to Instagram, Keke announced that she was going to be shaving her head in support of her toddler, who has lost all of their hair while fighting the disease.
“Plz pray for my family… Haven’t really said to [sic] much about my personal life, But my child has been fighting cancer and lost all of their hair that they loved,” she wrote. “It hurts me so bad. So to show Mommy’s support I’m going to get @keever_west to shave me bald today.”
Following the announcement, Keke debuted the new cut on Instagram Live. She also revealed that her aunt had also shaved her head as an act of solidarity.
This sad news come just a few months after Keke revealed that she was expecting her ninth child with hubby Michael Ford. In both her Instagram post and her Instagram Live feed, Keke asks for prayers and support, to which many fans inquired as to where they could donate funds.
The singer has since directed well wishers to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, a hospital that focuses on specialized pediatric care.
The funds raised from donations go towards everything from helping to alleviate medical costs for low income families to providing the hospital with supplies. We’ll be sending lots of love and thoughts to Keke and her family.
