In March 2015, Shannen Doherty received news every woman dreads - she had breast cancer.

For two years, the Beverly Hills, 90210 actress fought through chemotherapy and draining treatments, but in the end she came out on top. From the moment she was diagnosed to the when she found out she was in remission, Doherty remained incredibly open about her fight against the awful disease. She wanted to share her experience while simultaneously reaching out to those who may be going through the same thing as her.

She often used social media, including Instagram, to update her fans on her journey, including everything from her coping mechanisms, to getting a mastectomy, and shaving her head.

Back in May, Doherty revealed that she was finally cancer-free, but she still had some difficult decisions to make.

"Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment. What does remission mean? I heard that word and have no idea how to react," she captioned a photo of her sitting on the ground, face buried in the crook of her arm, presumably overwhelmed with the news. "Good news? YES. Overwhelming. YES. Now more waiting," wrote Doherty in an Instagram post.

She continued, "In the meantime, decisions. Reconstruction which is several surgeries. Decision on taking a pill for the next five years that comes with its own set of problems and side effects. I am blessed, I know that. But for now.... remission. I'm going to just breathe. #cancerslayer"

Now, six months after she shared the good news, Doherty has returned to work and has been spotted on an outing a few days ago looking healthy.
