The excited performer hit Instagram last Friday to let her own friends and fans know the good news with an image of Dolly singing which she captioned, “I’m excited to announce that I will be singing Oct 24th in nashville [sic] at the country music hall of fame theatre, stepping on the same stage with Dolly Parton @dollyparton and her amazing band and many other musical artists to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer.”

Dolly Parton has always been a champion for breast cancer and somewhat of a healthcare hero even donating a million dollars to COVID-19 vaccine research.

She recently told the BBC that she felt “so proud to have been a part of that little seed money” that she hoped would grow into something that would help “heal this world.”

“I’m a very proud girl today to know I had anything at all to do with something that’s going to help us through this crazy pandemic.”

It’s also worth noting that Below Deck Med’s Captain Sandy is also a healthcare advocate after facing kidney cancer as well as a heart attack in her own past.
