To say that I'm struggling is light.

Shannen Doherty, 48, thanked her followers for his or her help amidst her devastating stage 4 most cancers battle on February 11 and admitted she's been "struggling" with all of it.

The 48-year-old, who was initially diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2015 and announced she was in remission in 2017, said she is still hopeful despite her cancer returning. I will dig deeply into the inner strength I need to face it all. "I pray I do it all with dignity and grace", Promises the Charmed actress before telling fans "please know how much you all help lift me".

Doherty said she had much more to say and share on the topic, but for now she just wants her fans to know that they've helped lift her during this hard time. So much to share.


Shannen Doherty took to her Instagram to share a fantastic picture of herself driving a horse together with a heartbreaking caption about how she's been coping with her stage 4 most cancers analysis. And that's why I'm here.

"And he said, 'All right, let's just get you in.' I think in the back of your head, you are always suspecting that this is going to happen".

"To say that I have stress is a euphemism".

"It's a bitter pill to swallow in a lot of ways", she added. "I know this is hard, and you are feeling overwhelmed, but I want you to know that you are not alone... you have all of us prayer warriors out here fighting for you". And then I go, well, why not me? None of us do.


Shannen had gone public with her diagnosis now because she feared her health battles could come out in court documents relating to her legal fight with insurance company State Farm, who she is suing as she claimed some of her claims have been unjustly denied after her California home was damaged by fire in 2018. I know this is hard and you feel overwhelmed, but I want you to do it.

"It was really shocking and the least I could do to honour him was to do that [reboot] show".

She said: "I thought... people can look at that and say, "Oh my God, yeah". I don't want it to be a court document. "I want people to know from me".
