The beautiful Shannen Doherty has posted a heartbreaking photo revealing her biggest fears, which paint the very grey picture of her cancer.
The post shows Shannen on her first day of radiation therapy which is the next stage in her battle against breast cancer.
The caption on the post gave her fans a rare insight into her feelings and her struggles… but she promises them she is still ‘fighting like a girl’. Her words have touched so many and of course left some in tears.
She wrote “first day of radiation treatment. I look like I'm about to make a run for it, which is accurate…. Radiation is frightening to me. Something about not being able to see the 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.”
Shannen, who is just 45-years-old, has been very open with her cancer treatment since her diagnosis in the hope to help others.
She recently told People magazine, “I am continuing to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life… I am thankful to my family, friends and doctors for their support and, of course, my fans who have stood by me.”
Our thoughts are with her always.
