American actress and "Charmed" series star Shannen Doherty, who has been fighting cancer for more than 8 years, told her fans the sad news. The 52-year-old actress has formed metastases in the brain. She immediately started a course of radiotherapy.
On her Instagram page, the celebrity shared a video from the medical center. On it, she is captured in a special mask for brain irradiation. You can see that the eyes of the actress are full of tears. Dougherty's heartbreaking look has sentimentalized her 2 million followers on her personal blog (to see the photo and video, scroll to the end of the page).
"On January 5, my CT scan showed metastases in my brain. Yesterday's video showed the process of wearing the mask that you put on during brain irradiation. On January 12, the first irradiation took place. My fear is obvious. I am claustrophobic and have had a lot going on in my life. I'm lucky, I have wonderful doctors. But this fear...embarrassment. This is what cancer can look like," Shannen wrote.
Shannen was diagnosed with a breast tumor back in March 2015. In 2016, the artist had a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In 2017, the celebrity went into remission.
In 2020, during the Good Morning America show, the Hollywood star revealed that her disease had returned and she would have to fight stage four cancer.
Fans try to support their favorite, leaving nice words under her posts: "We love you so much, Shannen. We are with you. I wish I could take your fear and pain personally," "You are a brave and strong woman. Keep fighting!", "I am sending you my love, strength and patience. You will make it! Life will win."
