Shannen Doherty, a famous American actress, continues her battle against cancer. She was initially diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, and two years later, she experienced a period of remission. However, in 2020, the cancer recurred and metastasized to her brain.

She recently confirmed that it has also spread to her bones. In an interview with People, the actress confirmed her determination to fight and expressed no intention of giving up. Since day one, her goal has been to win this battle!

“I don’t want to die. I’m not done with living. I’m not done with loving. I’m not done with creating. I’m not done with hopefully changing things for the better. I’m just not — I’m not done”.

The biggest help in her fight against cancer is faith. She prays regularly and believes that a Higher Power will help her. Shannen tries to be grateful for every second of her life and make the most of it.

“I pray. I wake up and go to bed thanking God, praying for the things that matter to me without asking for too much. It connects me to a higher power and spirituality. My faith is my mantra.
I know it sounds cheesy and crazy, but you’re just more aware of everything, and you feel so blessed.

We’re the people who want to work the most, because we’re just so grateful for every second, every hour, every day we get to be here”. She doesn't want to let her illness spoil her plans. Shannon wants to stay true to her principles from day one!

“They put you out to pasture at a very early age —‘You’re done, you’re retired,’ and we’re not.
We’re vibrant, and we have such a different outlook on life. We are people who want to work and embrace life and keep moving forward."
