Shannen Doherty Fighting Breast Cancer; Documents Shaving Her Head

Aw this story just breaks my heart…

Shannen Doherty, best known for playing Brenda Walsh in “Beverly Hills 90210,” posted photos of herself shaving her head documenting her ongoing battle with breast cancer to her Instagram page.

Doherty first confirmed her cancer diagnosis in a lawsuit that she filed against Tanner Mainstain, her former business management firm. According to US Weekly, “in the court documents, she alleged that her cancer spread because she wasn’t properly covered by her health insurance. Doherty was previously fired by the firm and learned of her cancer after she enrolled in the Screen Actors Guild’s insurance last year.”

In February Shannen was a guest on the Dr. Oz Show and said she was planning to remove the tumor. “Ultimately, they’re just breasts, right? I mean, I love them, they’re mine, they’re beautiful, but in the grand scheme of things, I would rather be alive, and I would rather grow old with my husband.”

Amen sister. We are thinking of you during this difficult time. See the rest of Shannen’s pictures >>> HERE.
