This is not the first time Griffin's family has dealt with a cancer diagnosis. The comedian's older brother, Gary, lost his battle with stage-four esophageal cancer in 2014. The conditions of her sisters diagnosis are unknown.
Griffin has not yet shared images of her new look on any of her social media platforms, but then again, she hasn't been too active online after coming under fire in late May for photographs she took while holding a bloody, decapitated head resembling President Donald Trump.
In a behind-the-scenes video from the photo shoot, Griffin claimed she and the photographer were "not afraid to do images that make noise," which is exactly what erupted moments after the pictures were shared.
The noise got a little too loud for Griffin's taste, and she eventually apologized. "I crossed the line. I move the line. Then I cross it. I went way too far," she said. "The image is too disturbing. I understand how it offends people. It wasn't funny. I get it."
