This isn't the first time Kathy's family has had to go through this horrible ordeal. Her older brother Gary passed away at 63-years-old from stage-four esophageal cancer. “This AM my brave brother Gary Griffin passed away in palliative care after a brutal struggle w cancer,” Griffin wrote on Instagram at the time. “Oh & he was funny as s––t.”

The actress is comfortable wearing a wig—a few weeks ago Kris and Kendall Jenner were caught sneaking a few selfies in Kathy's wigs—but maybe she'll try the bald look for a while.
