Shannen Doherty, aka Brenda Walsh of Beverly Hills 90210 fame recently made a public statement about her battle with Cancer. The 45-year old actress was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2015 and even after a mastectomy; the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes.
Doherty is undergoing chemotherapy at the moment which will soon be followed by radiation. While it takes absolute courage to talk about your fears in the open, Doherty has been brave and talking about her grievances to her fans. She states that it is not the pain or the treatment that scares her, but the thought of the unknown future and losing her loved ones that puts her into shatters!
Last week, Doherty posted a series of Instagram pictures documenting her shaving her head. She said that after her second chemo treatment her hair had matted, like in dreadlocks. That’s when she decided to let go off her favourite possession-from pixie to Mohawk, the process of cutting her hair was executed in stages.
Shannen, we understand the pain and agony you feel, but salute you for being such a valiant soul. It takes only someone as courageous as you to come out and talk about your fears in open. Oh brave soul! We wish you luck and hope for a speedy recovery soon!
