Shannen Doherty Reveals She’s in Remission: ‘I Am Blessed’
This is such amazing news!
A year and a half of chemotherapy and radiation, Shannen Doherty revealed that the doctors have given her good news in an emotional Instagram post.
The 46-year-old shared a photograph of her sitting on the floor with her face tucked into her arms, appearing to be crying.
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
