Shannen Doherty Reveals New Development About Her Cancer

Ever since Shannen Doherty broke the news about her cancer diagnosis in March 2015, fans from all over have been rallying behind her and supporting her brave fight against the disease.

Earlier this month, Doherty gave the world a glimpse into her struggle with chemotherapy and one of her coping mechanisms when she feels drained by the treatments.

A few weeks later, Doherty is once again letting us in her life but this time she has some good news to share.


After two years of fighting, she announced that she is finally in remission.

"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.

It comes as no surprise that the Beverly Hills 90210 actress would share this update on Instagram. She has been very open about this journey and has been regularly sharing updates about the state of her health, from shaving her head to getting the "red devil" injection, with fans through social media.

In this latest post, Doherty shares that despite being in remission she still has some difficult decisions ahead.

"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"

We're so relieved that Doherty is winning this battle. We're sending positive vibes her way!
