Actress Shannen Doherty is most recognized for starring in the popular ’90s hit show, Beverly Hills 90210, but it’s her recent courageous battle with breast cancer that has earned her a new role: survivor.
For Shannen, dealing with a diagnosis of breast cancer since February 2015 has been a difficult process. In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 45-year-old revealed that the cancer had spread .
“I had breast cancer that spread to the lymph nodes, and from one of my surgeries we discovered that some of the cancer cells might have actually gone out of the lymph nodes,” she said. “So for that reason, we are doing chemo, and then after chemo, I’ll do radiation.”
Earlier this year, Shannen also had a single mastectomy, which has left her feeling emotional but grateful to have survived. Along the way, she has shared some of her most difficult moments with the world, in revealing and raw photos and videos.
After a recent chemo treatment, Shannen wanted to let people know what the “day after” chemo looks like for her. So she uploaded a high energy dance workout video to show the world that she’s going to continue to kick cancer to the curb.
