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