In a selfie posted to her Instagram account on August 6, the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star showed off her shaved head and shared a poem by writer and social media star R.M. Drake that assures her fans that she's going to keep fighting.

"She was fierce, she was strong, she wasn't simple," the 45-year-old writes. "She was crazy and sometimes she barely slept. She always had something to say. She had flaws and that was ok.

"And when she was down, she got right back up," she continues. "She was a beast in her own way, but one idea described her best. She was unstoppable and she took anything she wanted with a smile. R.M. Drake. #cancersucks #warrior #fightlikeagirl."

Shannen was diagnosed with breast cancer back in February of 2015. She then revealed in an emotional interview on Entertainment Tonight last week that the disease had spread to her lymph nodes.

"It's hard," the actress said during the interview. "I started thinking that I wasn't going to live... I don't look past today ... I don't know if I'll ever look like me again."

We're glad to see that Shannen isn't giving up despite her setback, and we wish her the best in her ongoing battle.
