Beverly Hills 90210 and Charmed actress Shannen Doherty talked about her fourth-stage cancer. A breast cancer was diagnosed with a celebrity in 2015, and in 2017, doctors announced a remission. Unfortunately, the disease has returned, writes "Gazeta.ru".
Beverly Hills 90210 and Enchanted star Shannen Doherty confirmed she has stage four cancer. The actress did not indicate the type of oncology, but three years ago she completed the treatment of breast cancer. The disease was diagnosed in 2015, reports USA Today. The celebrity spoke about the return of a dangerous illness in the studio of the Good Morning America show on ABC News.
“I don’t think I took this disease,” Doherty told host Amy Roebuck. - This is a bitter pill that can be taken in many ways.
I definitely have days when I ask myself: “Why me?” And then I answer myself: “Well, why not me? Who, besides me, deserves this? "None of us deserve such a fate."
Currently, the actress is busy with the lawsuit - she filed a lawsuit against the insurance company State Farm. The organization failed to fulfill its obligations after Doherty’s house was seriously damaged by the Wolsey fire in 2018. She explained that she decided to make her diagnosis public, because legal documents mentioning cancer would in any case go to the press.
“I would prefer people to hear this information from me - I do not want it to be voiced from a court document and somehow distorted. It’s best to provide real and genuine information and control its appearance in the press, ”Doherty said.

The actress did not give the date of the next diagnosis, but said that she was already ill during the filming of the Beverly Hills 90210 reload last year. According to Doherty, she decided to join work on the series to pay tribute to the late actor Luke Perry, as well as become an example for people with oncology.
“I thought people could look at it and say,“ Oh god, yes! It can work, which means that other people with the fourth stage of cancer can also. " Our life does not end the moment we get this diagnosis, ”the star added.
In August 2019, Doherty said it was impossible to “face something like cancer and not become another person.” According to the actress, a terrible diagnosis significantly affected her attitudes and perception of her body.
“I don’t think that I am in remission. I look at it as if I were lucky to be alive every minute, every second of the day, ”she said.
According to Doherty, cancer has strengthened her relationship with her husband-producer Kurt Isvarienko.
“Kurt and I value each other a lot more now,” she said. - We do not allow ourselves to be angry with each other. Our last serious debate on elevated tones was before being diagnosed in 2015. ”
She also thanked her husband for help in taking her body after a course of chemotherapy.
“I don't need to be a sexy little fox. The way Kurt sees me really helps me get better. He always said: “I never saw anyone cope with something so complicated with such grace. You are very strong - and, as I understand it, this is a quiet force. It is much sexier and more attractive than before, ”Doherty quoted him as saying.
Despite the belief in a full recovery, the actress admitted that oncology forever changed her. She emphasized that she was set for a successful outcome, “took good care of herself” and easily recovered after the last chemotherapy.
