Shannen Doherty, known for playing Brenda Walsh on “Beverly Hill 90210” and Prue Halliwell on the hit show “Charmed”, has revealed that she has shaved her head during breast cancer battle.
Sharing six images on her Instagram account, including one of her looking sad which will make your heart cry.
Shannen was surrounded by her friends and family, who posed for photos and helped her with the traumatic moment.
Back in August, the 45 year old actress released a statement confirming the news, and thanked her nearest and dearest for their support.
Shannen said: “Yes, I have breast cancer and I am currently undergoing treatment. I am continuing to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life. I am thankful to my family, friends and doctors for their support and of course my fans who have stood by me.”
It’s believed that Shannen released her statement after TMZ obtained legal documents that showed she was suing her former management firm Tanner Mainstain, claiming they allowed her health insurance to lapse.
According to the lawsuit, the cancer spread in 2014 when she was uninsured.
It’s believed that Shannen was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in March 2015 and the lawsuit claims doctors told her earlier treatment might have prevented it spreading.
Responding to her allegations in a statement, the firm said: “Tanner Mainstain is saddened to learn that Ms. Doherty is suffering from cancer and wishes her a full recovery.
“However, the claim that Tanner Mainstain caused her to be uninsured, prevented her from seeking medical care, or somehow contributed to her cancer is patently false.”
We send all the well wishes to Shannen during this hard time. Get well soon!
