Shannen Doherty Instagram


Shannen Doherty is taking the next steps in her breast cancer battle.

The Beverly Hills, 90210 album documented her first day of radiation today on Instagram and opened up to her fans and followers about her mentality going into the doctor's office today.

"First day of radiation treatment. I look like I'm about to make a run for it which is accurate."

She continued, "Radiation is frightening to me. Something about not being able to see this laser, see the treatment and having this machine moving around you just scares me. I'm sure I'll get used to it but right now…I hate it. #radiation #radiationmondaysucks #stillfightinglikeagirl."

During a candid, emotional interview late last month, the actress spoke from the heart about how she and her husband, Kurt Iswarienko, have been handling her diagnosis and treatment plan.

"I think what's beautiful and hard and interesting about cancer is that it tears you down and builds you, and tears you down and builds you. It remakes you so many different times. The person I thought I was supposed to be or was going to be or who I thought I was six months ago is now somebody completely different."

The 45-year-old added, "Cancer is not pleasant but it can bring out the best in relationships or the worse. Thankfully, it has made our marriage stronger."

Doherty revealed in court documents that she was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2015 while suing her business manager for neglecting to pay her medical insurance.
