The Moment Shannen Doherty Finds Out She Is In Remission

After a two year battle with breast cancer, former Beverly Hills 90210 star Shannen Doherty has confirmed that she is now in remission.

The star confirmed the news with this emotional post on her Instagram profile.


Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment. What does remission mean? I heard that word and have no idea how to react. Good news? YES. Overwhelming. YES. Now more waiting.

As every single one of my fellow cancer family knows, the next five years is crucial. Reoccurrences happen all the time. Many of you have shared that very story with me. So with a heart that is certainly lighter, I wait.

In the meantime, decisions. Reconstruction which is several surgeries. Decision on taking a pill for the next five years that comes with its own set of problems and side effects.

I am blessed, I know that. But for now.... remission. I'm going to just breathe. #cancerslayer

The amazing news comes just months after the former Charmed actress finished her final round of chemotherapy.

Doherty was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 and has posted emotional photos and messages online since then chronicling her journey.
