After being diagnosed with cancer nearly two years ago, Shannen Doherty’s final day of chemotherapy has finally come.
As with every major high and low on her road to recovery, the former “Beverly Hills, 90210” actress turned to Instagram to document the big day. “#Fbf to this morning… not that long ago. Last day of chemo. Exhausted,” she captioned a selfie of herself tucked under white bed sheets. “Now that I’m done with chemo and radiation, the waiting game is here. Waiting for test. Waiting to see if I’m clear or not. Waiting for reconstruction. Waiting.”
She added, writing that “when one gets cancer, they are always waiting to a certain extent. To those who know… I’m waiting with for you.”
#fbf to this morning. Oct7,2016… not that long ago. Last day of chemo. Exhausted. Now that I'm done with chemo and radiation, the waiting game is here. Waiting for test. Waiting to see if I'm clear or not. Waiting for reconstruction. Waiting. I think when one gets cancer, they are always waiting to a certain extent. To those who know… I'm waiting with you. #cancerslayer 🎀
Doherty went public with her battle to People in August of 2015. “Yes, I have breast cancer, and I am currently undergoing treatment. I am continuing to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life,” she wrote in a statement. The revelation began a deeply personal account of her journey that included posts about her first day of radiation to shaving her head and paying tribute to her husband, Kurt Iswarienko.
First day of radiation treatment. I look like I'm about to make a run for it which is accurate. Radiation is frightening to me. Something about not being able to see the laser, see the treatment and having this machine moving around you just scares me. I'm sure I'll get used to it but right now…. I hate it. #radiation #radiationmondaysucks #stillfightinglikeagirl
Valentines Day with my one and only. We aren't perfect. We argue. We disagree. We stare cancer in the face. But…. we also love and support and strengthen. We laugh and cry. We talk and share. We believe…. in love and each other. Today is more Valentines Day to me than some commercial Day. I ❤️ you @kurtiswarienko #thisislove #swans #Repost @kurtiswarienko with @repostapp ・・・ Got to spend a beautiful valentines day with my beautiful wife @theshando who's strength and depth of character are daily reminders to me of what life is really about.
