Shannen Doherty had good news to share with everyone!
The 46-year-old actress has announced that she is in remission following her breast cancer diagnosis, as reported by E! News.
Doherty was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2015, and has since been open with her fans about her situation, documenting her struggle, yet staying positive.
“Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment,” she wrote on Instagram, “What does remission mean? I heard that word and have no idea how to react. Good news? YES. Overwhelming. YES. Now more waiting.”
“I am blessed,I know that. But for now… remission. I’m going to just breathe. #cancerslayer”
Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment. What does remission mean? I heard that word and have no idea how to react. Good news? YES. Overwhelming. YES. Now more waiting. As every single one of my fellow cancer family knows, the next five years is crucial. Reoccurrences happen all the time. Many of you have shared that very story with me. So with a heart that is certainly lighter, I wait. In the meantime, decisions. Reconstruction which is several surgeries. Decision on taking a pill for the next five years that comes with its own set of problems and side effects. I am blessed, I know that. But for now.... remission. I'm going to just breathe. #cancerslayer
Going forward, Doherty is aware she'll be making a lot of decisions the next few years regarding her health, but right now, she is just grateful for being a “cancer slayer.”
