Shannen Doherty Thanks Radiation Team for Treatment: ‘None of This Is Easy’

Group effort! Shannen Doherty thanked her radiation team for their help and kindness throughout her cancer treatment in an Instagram post on Wednesday, December 7.

“Another day of radiation. Meet Anna and Vince, 2 members of my radiation team,” she captioned the black-and-white image of herself throwing a double thumbs up to the camera while sandwiched between the two professionals. “They make a concerted effort to talk to me and show me what’s going on in this process so I don’t feel so out of control in it.”

In the photo, Doherty looks to be in good spirits as she stands by a desk in a hospital gown, showing off her makeup-free face and shaved head.

“Never be too timid to speak up and ask for what you need to get thru the process,” she advised fans. “None of this is easy but a great team can make it more pleasant. #cancerslayer #fightlikeagirl #warrior #communicationiskey.”

Doherty, 45, has been vigilantly documenting her experience as she undergoes treatment for breast cancer. In late November, she shared a photo of herself getting ready for her first round of radiation, which she called “frightening.”

“First day of radiation treatment,” she captioned an image of herself anxiously leaning forward in a doctor’s office chair. “I look like I’m about to make a run for it, which is accurate.”

As previously reported, Doherty is currently battling breast cancer after being diagnosed in February 2015. (She went public with her battle in August 2015 after she claimed in a lawsuit against her former business manager that her cancer spread because her health insurance wasn’t up-to-date.)

The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum has surrounded herself with good people, including her husband, Kurt Iswarienko, and her mom, to help her combat the treatment blues. On Tuesday, November 29, Doherty shared a touching selfie with her mom after cooking dinner for the mother-daughter pair.

“#radiationday with my mom,” the Charmed alum captioned the image, in which her mom holds up an empty bowl. “Came home and whipped her up some homemade tomato soup cause cooking relaxes me. I think she liked it … @themamarosa.”
