An Emotional Shannen Doherty Opens Up About Her Breast Cancer Battle

Shannen Doherty is sharing her story about battling breast cancer.

She revealed last August that she was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2015, and now in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 45-year-old actress speaks about a recent heartbreaking setback in her battle against the disease.

“It’s hard,” Doherty said through tears. “I started thinking that I wasn’t going to live… I don’t look past today,” adding, “I don’t know if I’ll ever look like me again.”

“I want to believe that if I fight, I’m gonna be OK,” she said. Doherty’s exclusive interview airs on Monday, only on ET.

Doherty recently posted a series of Instagram photos of shaving her head, surrounded by close friends and her mother, Rosa.

ET spoke with Doherty’s Beverly Hills, 90210 co-star, Jason Priestley, who thought her courageous display was admirable.

“What she did the other day, shaving her head and posting the pictures and everything, that was incredibly brave,” Priestley said. “Shannen’s a strong kid and a tough fighter, and I know that she’s gonna come through this fight and she’s gonna be OK.”
