(AURN) -- When Gerdi McKenna of South Africa learned she had breast cancer, one devoted friend decided to organize a photo shoot for McKenna surrounded by her closest friends.  But, unbeknownst to McKenna, her friends were planning more than just a few simple photos; they each decided to shave their heads in solidarity with their ailing friend.
