Shannen Doherty reveals 'impossibly tough day' in cancer battle


Former Beverly Hills 90210 star Shannen Doherty has thanked her "squad" for helping her through her cancer ordeal.

The actress recently posted images of herself getting her hair shaved on Instagram.

Now Shannen has thanked the close group around her for being there for her throughout her illness.

The US star said that although her husband Kurt Iswarienko was away for work, she was "in good hands."

She thanked her friends and mum for having "helped me through an impossibly tough day" and for showering her with love and support "every minute".

The Charmed actress, who was 45 in April, was accompanied by her mother Rosa and friends Anne Marie Kortright and Chris Cortazzo in the photo.

In her latest Instagram post, she wrote: "Thank you to these three who helped me thru an impossibly tough day and continue to be there every minute supporting and loving me.

"@kurtiswarienko was in Mexico working but knew he left me in good hands. @annemkortright @chriscortazzo #mamarosa I love you. #mycrew #thisisasquad"

In a previous post, Shannen was close to tears as her mother held her in her arms.

In the following candid shots, she was seen first shortening her hair with scissors, before using the razor to shave away the rest.

Appearing on the Dr Oz Show in February, she revealed that she is unlikely to be able to have children due to her cancer treatment.

"I'm 44 and my husband and I wanted children," she admitted, adding that the couple would look at adopting instead.

Shannen revealed that she was fighting breast cancer in August last year, after being diagnosed in March.
