Shannen Doherty, a star known for her roles in TV shows like “Beverly Hills, 90210” and “Charmed”, has been open about her tough fight against cancer.
This year, in June, she shared some sad news: her cancer, which is in stage four, had spread to her brain. This news brought a lot of people together to support her.
Shannen, who is 52 years old, has been very brave in sharing her cancer journey. She often posts honest videos and updates on her Instagram to keep her fans informed and to encourage others going through similar struggles.
Back in 2015, Shannen was first diagnosed with breast cancer. After treatments, she announced in 2017 that she was in remission. However, in 2020, she had to tell everyone on “Good Morning America” that her cancer had come back, and it was more serious this time.
Recently, Shannen did a photoshoot for People magazine and shared another tough update: the cancer has now spread to her bones. Despite this, Shannen is full of life and determination. She says, “I’m not done with living. I’m not done with loving. I’m not done with creating. I’m not done with hopefully changing things for the better. I’m just not — I’m not done.”
After her first diagnosis, Shannen went through a lot of treatment, including a surgery called mastectomy, chemotherapy, and radiation. Even though the cancer came back, she is committed to raising awareness and funds for cancer research. She wants to show that people with serious cancer can still make a big difference in the world.
Now, Shannen is looking into new treatments through clinical trials. She wants to prove that she can keep working and living a full life, even with her diagnosis. She says it’s wrong to think that people with serious illnesses can’t do things. She’s grateful for every new day, especially the time she spends with her loved ones and her dog, Bowie.
Shannen also talks about how her faith and spirituality help her. She feels more aware of everything and is grateful for every moment she has.
We send our best wishes to Shannen Doherty in her fight against cancer. Sharing this story is a way to show support for her and her journey.
