Doherty’s fight with cancer was made public in 2015 when she filed a lawsuit against her former business management firm. In the legal documents, the actress alleged that they had neglected to pay her health insurance premium, causing a delay in the discovery of her disease.

The suit read, “Plaintiff was also informed that, had she been insured and able to visit her doctor, the cancer could potentially have been stopped, thus obviating the need for the future treatment (including mastectomy and chemotherapy) that Plaintiff will likely have to suffer through now.”
