Baywatch alum Nicole Eggert shaved her head this week following her devastating breast cancer diagnosis, RadarOnline.com can report.

In a surprising development to come weeks after Eggert, 52, revealed that she was diagnosed with stage 2 cribriform carcinoma breast cancer in December 2023, the actress and mom-of-two shared an update on her treatment journey on Thursday night.

The Baywatch and Charles in Charge star uploaded a video of herself and her daughter Keegan, 12, shaving her head on Instagram.

Eggert paired the touching video with a recording of the hit Beastie Boys song Fight For Your Right as she smiled at the camera and started to shave her head.

“Maybe healing involves not so much changing ourselves but allowing ourselves to be who we are,” the actress captioned the post – a quote from author Madeleine Eames.

The Charles in Charge star previously cut her hair in February, although she did not decide to shave her head until this week.

“It really was throbbing and hurting,” Eggert explained in January. “I immediately went to my general practitioner, and she told me I had to immediately go get it looked at.”

“But the problem was I just couldn't get an appointment. Everything was booked,” she continued. “So I had to wait until the end of November to get it done.”
