Shannen Doherty (Brenda), the famous character from the tv series Beverly Hills 90210, has begun saying farewell to her family.

It has not been easy for Shannen Doherty to fight breast cancer for the past eight years. In a recent Instagram post, she provided an update on her health, saying, “Early morning doctors visit for scans.”

“With bleary eyes. My hair was a mess, but the fresh bandage wraps brightened my day!” She posted the photo with her pink bandages and the hashtag “#cancerslayer.”

Doherty found a lump in her breast in 2015 and was given the sad news that she had breast cancer. After some time on hormone treatment, she had to go through radiation, chemotherapy, and a single mastectomy.

In 2017, Doherty’s cancer entered remission. Unfortunately, stage IV breast cancer returned in February 2020. Other areas of her body have also been affected by her condition.

Breast cancer can be diagnosed in stages ranging from 0 to IV, with higher numbers denoting a more invasive malignancy or how far the malignant cells have spread outside of the initial tumor.
