Through the rain comes a rainbow, and Shannen Doherty is seeing that right now.

Despite the actress' difficult battle against breast cancer, she has seen some positives, especially in her marriage to Kurt Iswarienko.

Doherty—who shaved her head last week as she undergoes chemotherapy—took to Instagram on Thursday to gush about her husband and all the support he's given her through the hard times.

"He loves me with pink hair or no hair," she wrote beside a photo, wearing a pink wig as the couple flips off the camera. "I'm blessed to have such a strong support team starting with @kurtiswarienko who loves me more every second. Can't imagine my life without him."

She continued, "Cancer is not pleasant but it can bring out the best in relationships or the worse. Thankfully, it has made our marriage stronger."

Iswarienko also shared a post on Instagram alongside Shannen and model Anne Kortright-Shilstat, who shaved the actress' head.

"Cancer is like a book with so many pages you don't see a way to read through all of them at once. But when you take them one page at a time, a story emerges and takes shape in unexpected ways," he wrote. "The outcome isn't clear or easy to reckon with, but you find as you go through the journey that a clear outcome isn't the point. The journey is the thing. The people you connect with along the way are the point. It's about human energy. It's about breathing. #shannensquad #fuckcancer @theshando @annemkortrigh."

Meanwhile, Doherty—who is known for her roles as Brenda on Beverly Hills, 90210 and Prue on Charmedrevealed her cancer diagnosis last August when she filed a lawsuit against against an accounting firm she claims failed to make payments on her medical insurance without her consent or knowledge. The company has denied any wrongdoing.

In her suit, the actress claimed that when she obtained coverage again, a doctor discovered she had "invasive breast cancer metastatic to at least one lymph node." The actress also said she was told the disease had likely spread during the time when she was uninsured. At this time, the case is pending.

After the revelation, Doherty said she was set to undergo chemotherapy and have a mastectomy. She then made her first red carpet appearance since the announcement in November, appearing at the 2015 Baby2Baby gala.
