Shannen Doherty just finished an interview in “Good Morning America” and it was an emotional one.
She is currently battling a stage 4 cancer. For those who haven’t heard about her health past, she had just finished her treatment for breast cancer.
The 48-year-old lady had first her breast cancer diagnosed in 2015. Sadly, she is dealing with another kind of cancer for the recent year. She didn’t specify what she has.
During the interview, she told Good Morning America’s host Amy Robach about having a challenging time to accept her situation. She said, “I don’t think that I’ve processed it. It’s a bitter pill to swallow in a lot of ways. I have days where I say, ‘Why me?’ And then I go, ‘Well, why not me? Who else besides me deserves this?’ None of us does.”
Currently, she also in the middle of the lawsuit with State Farm insurance over her out of pocket expense that was “severely damaged” during the Woolsey fire in 2018.
She wanted to mention about her cancer first because legal documents will be saying about her current cancer. She continued “I’d rather people hear it from me. I don’t want it to be twisted; I don’t want it to be a court document. I want it to be real and authentic, and I want to control the narrative. I want people to know from me.”
As for the Beverly Hills lady, she joined the reboot on “BH 90210” even during the middle of her health situation. She was teary eyes, and she just decided to join them because it was also about paying tribute to Luke Perry. She also wanted to show others about fighting cancer.
She said,” I thought … people can look at that and say, ‘Oh my God, yeah. She can work, and other people with stage 4 can work, too.’ Our life doesn’t end the minute we get that diagnosis.”
The only one who knew about what was going on with her life was Brian Austin Green, known as David Silver. He was thoughtful during those times, “Before the shooting, he would always call me and say, ‘Listen: Whatever happens, I have your back.”
In March 2015, Shannen Doherty got diagnosed with breast cancer but only announced it on August 2016 when it started to spread to her lymph nodes. She had a mastectomy on that year and had finished her chemotherapy treatment and radiation February the next year.
During her interview in 2016, she mentioned, “The unknown is always the scariest part. Is the chemo going to work? Is the radiation going to work? You know, am I going to have to go through this again, or am I going to get secondary cancer? Everything else is manageable. Pain is manageable; you know living without a breast is manageable, it’s the worry of your future and how your future is going to affect the people that you love.”
In other interviews, she was talking about her cancer and said, “it’s impossible to “face something like cancer and not be a different person”.
Her first concern was how to tell her family members.
