The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star — who was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2015 — has taken to Instagram to thank her fans for their support.

"Each persons (sic) cancer journey is different. For me, chemo has been terrible and believe me, we have tried almost everything.

"So days like this have become a bit of the norm. I'm learning that it's ok to fall into bed and give in to the exhaustion or nausea or aches. I've learned a lot of that thru all the beautiful people who have shared their personal stories with me right here on Instagram.

"Thank you. Btw, it doesn't hurt to have #msbowie comfort me So back to my nap. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes and stories. They help so much. #blessed by #mamarosa. (sic)"

The actress believes her pet pooch Bowie knew something was wrong long before her diagnosis as she kept "obsessively" sniffing her right breast.

"She [Bowie] would obsessively sniff right here on my right side for a long time before. So, it made sense when I got diagnosed,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Dancing With the Stars alum recently opened up about her struggles over the last few months.

"I had breast cancer that spread to the lymph nodes, and from one of my surgeries we discovered that some of the cancer cells might have actually gone out of the lymph nodes.

"So for that reason, we are doing chemo, and then after chemo, I'll do radiation."

We wish Shannen the best of luck on her road to recovery!
