After Beating Cancer Shannen Doherty Makes Major Announcement

Shannen Doherty made an announcement in 2015 that she was diagnosed with cancer. The diagnosis changed her life, but has since made her stronger. Doherty told “Entertainment Tonight” that it was her pooch that caught her cancer before her official diagnosis in February 2015. She said:
“She would obsessively sniff right here on my right side for a long time before. So, it made sense when I got diagnosed.”

Shannen constantly updated us all on her cancer recovery and fight; she became a spokesperson for the community and a symbol of strength. She posted many photos, but one caption stood out to me: “#fbf to this morning. Oct7,2016… not that long ago. Last day of chemo. Exhausted. Now that I’m done with chemo and radiation, the waiting game is here. Waiting for test. Waiting to see if I’m clear or not. Waiting for reconstruction. Waiting. I think when one gets cancer, they are always waiting to a certain extent. To those who know… I’m waiting with you. #cancerslayer 🎀”

After being in remission she stated: “Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment. What does remission mean? I heard that word and have no idea how to react. Good news? YES. Overwhelming. YES. Now more waiting. As every single one of my fellow cancer family knows, the next five years is crucial. Reoccurrences happen all the time. Many of you have shared that very story with me. So with a heart that is certainly lighter, I wait. In the meantime, decisions. Reconstruction which is several surgeries. Decision on taking a pill for the next five years that comes with its own set of problems and side effects. I am blessed, I know that. But for now…. remission. I’m going to just breathe. #cancerslayer”
