Shannen Doherty Gets Support From Her Mother During Cancer Battle (PHOTO)
There’s nothing quite like a mother’s love.
Shannen Doherty is going through intense rounds of chemotherapy and is thankful for her mother’s support throughout it all.
The 45-year-old shared a sweet photo of herself resting on her mother’s lap.
“Sometimes there’s nothing like a mothers love to help get you thru [sic],” she said. “Thank you mom for always being there and being so strong for me. I love you.”
The actress had a mastectomy, but unfortunately the cancer spread to her lymph nodes, which has forced her to go through chemotherapy and radiation.
Though she was diagnosed in February 2015, the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star has just recently gone public with her battle, sharing updates and photos all over social media.
On Wednesday, August 10 the former Dancing With the Stars competitor posted a photo on Instagram of herself preparing for chemotherapy.
“A day many of us dread. Strength gets us thru but every once in awhile, you just want to hide in bed and let chemo day pass you by.”
Thankfully, Shannen has many supporters and friends rooting her on, including husband Kurt Iswarienko and friend Sarah Michelle Gellar.
