Shannen Doherty announced almost three years ago that she has gone into remission, however this week the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum revealed to ABC News that her cancer has returned and sadly at stage four. “It’s going to come out in a matter of days or a week that I have stage 4,” she said.
The 48-year-old star further revealed that she been secretly fighting stage 4 cancer for over a year, even during the filming of ‘BH 90210’ reboot. “I don’t think that I’ve processed it,” shared Doherty, adding that no one deserves to go through cancer and it’s also tough telling the family about the diagnosis.
Despite her cancer diagnosis, the star has been working 16 hours a day but has been concerned about sharing that she has stage 4 cancer because people would judge that she’s still working. “Our life doesn’t end the minute we get that diagnosis. We still have some living to do,” the star added.
