Making her first public appearance after completing chemotherapy last week, actress Shannen Doherty spoke to US Weekly about how she is feeling post-chemo.
“I feel great. I mean I feel good, I’m super positive, I’m happy with where I’m at right,” the brave 45-year-old revealed. “Cancer for me, as hard as it is, has been a blessing. It has changed who I am as a human being forever. It’s altered my life in ways I can’t even speak of.”
#fbf to this morning. Oct7,2016… not that long ago. Last day of chemo. Exhausted. Now that I'm done with chemo and radiation, the waiting game is here. Waiting for test. Waiting to see if I'm clear or not. Waiting for reconstruction. Waiting. I think when one gets cancer, they are always waiting to a certain extent. To those who know… I'm waiting with you. #cancerslayer
Shannen revealed to US Weekly how “blessed” she feels to have had all of the positive support from people around her, including husband of five years, Kurt Iswarienko. Shannen stepped out on the red carpet, with Kurt by her side, to host the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation’s first ever annual Gratitude Gala in West Hollywood – a cause dear to her heart.
Shannen first went public with her breast cancer battle in 2015. The Beverly Hills 90210 alum has since undergone a mastectomy, radiation and chemotherapy – a journey she has bravely shared on social media.
