Close cir­cle of friends helps Do­herty ‘push through’ cancer bat­tle

Pretoria News - - LIFESTYLE - BANG SHOW­BIZ Bev­erly Hills, 90210

Shannen Do­herty is “em­brac­ing every day” amid her cancer bat­tle.

The 48-year-old ac­tress re­vealed she was di­ag­nosed with stage IV breast cancer last month, three years after go­ing into re­mis­sion, and although she has days where she is “de­pressed” or feel­ing “plain lazy”, she man­ages to “push through” with the help of her close cir­cle of friends.

In a trib­ute to her friends and giv­ing an up­date on her bat­tle with the dis­ease, Do­herty wrote on In­sta­gram: “After a year of deal­ing with cancer com­ing back and other stresses, I’m back at it. Tak­ing care of my­self and em­brac­ing every day. It’s not al­ways easy. I have days I’m de­pressed or just plain lazy. But I push thru with the help of friends.”

The ac­tress’ co-star Brian Austin Green re­cently said his friend was re­main­ing “strong”.

He said: “I don’t want to speak about her too much, but it’s a hard sit­u­a­tion. “I mean, you know, cancer is not f***ing easy for any­one. And I love Shannen, and we’ve al­ways had a great re­la­tion­ship, and she’s strong. She’ll get through this and get out of this what she’s sup­posed to get out of this.”
