L’attrice Shannen Doherty è diventata vulnerabile nel suo ultimo aggiornamento sul cancro al seno. È passato quasi un decennio da quando Doherty ha parlato del suo cancro al seno, stimolato da una causa legale contro il suo ex manager, secondo Entertainment Weekly. Doherty ha affermato che i suoi ex rappresentanti hanno negato la sua copertura medica, il che avrebbe potuto consentirle di contrarre il cancro durante le fasi precedenti. Il deposito diceva: « Se fosse stata assicurata e in grado di visitare il suo medico, il cancro avrebbe potuto potenzialmente essere fermato, ovviando così alla necessità del trattamento futuro (compresa la mastectomia e la chemioterapia) che il querelante dovrà probabilmente subire ora ».
Unfortunately, Doherty wasn't able to avoid a series of emotionally challenging, invasive treatments, which she's heavily documented in an effort to spread cancer awareness. In addition to undergoing chemotherapy, Doherty has also had surgery and attempted hormone therapy. In 2017, Doherty revealed that her breast cancer was improving, and had gone into remission. This positive turn didn't last long, as she revealed on "Good Morning America" in 2020 that her breast cancer had progressed to stage 4 (via People).
Now, Doherty has given another update on her health and it's not good.
Shannen Doherty's cancer has worsened
Shannen Doherty recently revealed that her cancer has spread with an Instagram video of herself in the hospital. "January 12, 2023. On January 5th, my ct scan showed Mets in my brain," wrote Doherty. "Yesterdays video was showing the process of getting fitted for the mask which you wear during radiation to your brain. January 12, the first round of radiation took place." She continued, "My fear is obvious. I am extremely claustrophobic and there was a lot going on in my life. I am fortunate as I have great doctors like Dr Amin Mirahdi and the amazing techs at cedar sinai. But that fear.... The turmoil..... the timing of it all.... This is what cancer can look like."
Since the post went live, Doherty's supporters reached out to offer their support. Director Kevin Smith commented, "Rooting for you, my irreplaceable friend. You have been such a fearless fighter your whole life, so it's understandable to be a little scared from time to time. But when those moments pass, let that indomitable Doherty spirit take over anew. I love you so much, my Mallrat." Another fan tweeted, "I'm heavily praying and wishing and sending so much healing energy to shannen doherty. she's so amazing and she's gone through so much. she is so strong. so strong. i wish her nothing but healing and happiness."
