Shannen Doherty Begins Radiation: ‘It Is Frightening To Me’

Shannen Doherty continues to share her harrowing battle with breast cancer, and on Monday she invited her social media followers into the first of her radiation treatments.

“I look like I’m about to make a run for it which is accurate,” she captions a portrait of herself at her doctor’s office. “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.”

She adds: “I’m sure I’ll get used to it but right now…. I hate it.”

The post is part of an ongoing series of daily snapshots from Doherty that lifts the veil on the often unseen parts of the cancer fight.

The former “90210” star first opened up about her battle to People in August of 2015, telling the magazine that she is “thankful to… family, friends and doctors for their support and, of course, my fans who have stood by me.”
