Three years after Shannen Doherty beat cancer, the insidious disease has returned. The actress announced it herself.
It’s a shock to all fans of the popular star “Charmed”. In an interview with Good Morning America, Shannen Doherty reveals that she has cancer again: “It is only a matter of a few days before it is discovered that I have stage 4 cancer,” says the 48-year-old. “So: my cancer has returned and that is why I am here now.”
Cancer diagnosis while filming “BH90210”
For more than a year, the actress knew she was sick again. He received the diagnosis while filming the reboot for “Beverly Hills 90210.” However, the tough actress wanted to continue participating in the project. “One of the reasons I did 90210 is because I thought people would guess that people from stage 4 could still work. Because our life does not end with a diagnosis. We have more life to live. “
However, she still hasn’t fully internalized her relapse, says Shannen Doherty. “It is a bitter business in many ways. I have days when I think: Why me of all people? and then again: why not me? Who should have deserved it instead of me? Nobody deserves it ”. Her first thoughts after the shock diagnosis: “How should I tell my mother and my husband? ”Recalls the actress, who has been married to photographer Kurt Iswarienko since 2011.
In March 2015, Shannen Doherty announced her diagnosis of breast cancer. The next blow came in August 2016: the cancer had spread. Months of chemotherapy and radiation followed, during which the Charmed star lost his hair and often reached his physical and mental limits. But he never lost his positive attitude.
We are infinitely saddened and shocked and wish Shannen Doherty and her family great strength in the renewed fight against cancer.
