After a year of dealing with cancer coming back and other stresses, I’m back at it. Taking care of myself and embracing every day. It’s not always easy. I have days I’m depressed or just plain lazy. But I push thru with the help of friends. @annemkortright has been relentless in getting me to hike and learning new ways to cook that feed my soul as well as my tummy but in a very healthy way. She along with @cheforen @maliburadkitchen have made cooking healthy fun and sustainable. If that wasn’t enough…. Annemarie brought in @kirastokesfit to kick my butt yesterday! It’s been a productive great week. I feel better. My skin is alive and so am I.
Sharing a selfie which showed her smiling together with some friends, the actress wrote: “After a year of dealing with cancer coming back and other stresses, I’m back at it.”
Doherty revealed that eating healthily and getting outdoors through hiking has helped her to feel better.
She added: “It’s been a productive great week. I feel better. My skin is alive and so am I.”
Although Doherty’s breast cancer had gone into remission in 2017, the former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star recently revealed that it had returned.
“I don’t think that I’ve processed it. It’s a bitter pill to swallow in a lot of ways,” she said of her diagnosis during an interview with ABC News’ Amy Robach that aired on “Good Morning America”.
“I have definite days where I say, ‘Why me?’ And then I have days where I say, ‘Why not me? Who else? Who else besides me deserves this?’ None of us do.”
