Shannen Doherty Is Battling Stage Four Cancer

Staying Strong!

Three years after Shannen went into remission following a battle with breast cancer, Shannen has announced that her cancer has returned.


Shannen, best known as Brenda on Beverly Hills 90210 was very quiet about her illness, as she wanted to prove that she was able to work.  She was able to appear in the BH90210 reboot just last year.

During an interview Tuesday on Good Morning America, Shannen had perhaps a scene of calm…


“I don’t think that I’ve processed it.  ”“It’s a bitter pill to swallow in a lot of ways. I definitely have days where I say, ‘Why me?’ And then I go, ‘Well, why not me? Who else besides me deserves this?’ None of us do.”

Shannen said that the only reason she came forward was because it would get out otherwise…Her diagnosis would have come out in court documents, in a lawsuit she is filing against insurance company State Farm, in relation to an alleged unpaid claim for damage to her home following the Woolsey fires in California in 2018.
