Words of Hope for Shannen Doherty

While the pain and loss of a breast is 'manageable,' she's worried about how her cancer battle will impact her family and friends

After undergoing a double mastectomy in May, Shannen Doherty is opening up about her ongoing struggle with breast cancer…

“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; so for that reason, we are doing chemo, and then after chemo, I’ll do radiation,” she told Entertainment Tonight on Monday.

In this ET exclusive, the 45-year-old told actress of 90210 fame talks about the emotional moment she cut off her hair.

We thank Shannen for opening up about her struggle, and hope that her story will help other’s fighting the same battle. We wish her the utmost success with her upcoming treatment, and hope she knows there are thousands of fans around the world praying for her!
