Fighting cancer is no easy battle. No matter how good a patient’s chances are, the road to recovery and remission is difficult, and he or she needs support along the way. Cancer does not discriminate between men or women, or celebrities and non-celebrities.
Actress Shannen Doherty, who was diagnosed with breast cancer, revealed earlier this year that the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes. She would need chemotherapy and radiation to treat it.
She hasn’t stayed silent about her battle, and wants to be clear that cancer has many faces, and that they are not all pretty. As part of a world and society where a standard of beauty is expected to be adhered to, Shannen doesn’t want to give a false impression of what fighting cancer really looks like.
She has shared new, intimate photos of her chemotherapy sessions on social media, and detailing her experience for her followers and fans.
The 45-year-old has received an outpouring of support since her announcement, especially with these photos…
But through it all, she has received support from all of her loved ones, including her loving husband, who hasn’t missed a chance to be by her side.
