"I don't want to die": Beverly Hills 90210 star Shannen Doherty admits cancer has spread to her bones
American actress Shannen Doherty, who suffers from the fourth stage of breast cancer and has already had a tumor removed from her brain, admitted that she is getting worse. Now the metastases have spread to the bones of the Beverly Hills 90210 and Charmed star.
The 52-year-old celebrity continues her treatment and is determined to recover, as she is afraid of death. She told People magazine about it.
"I don't want to die. I have not stopped living. I have not stopped loving. I have not stopped creating. I haven't stopped hoping that things will change for the better," Shannen Doherty assured.
In 2015, she was first diagnosed with breast cancer, after which the actress underwent a mastectomy (surgical removal of the mammary glands - ed.), chemotherapy and radiation.
In 2017, the actress announced that she was in remission, and two years later, the cancer returned. Shannen Doherty said that she suffers from stage 4 metastatic cancer.
The star spends the time she has left to good use. She continues to work and support people with a similar diagnosis, draw public attention to the disease and raise funds to find an effective treatment.
