Shannon Doherty says ‘Cancer in remission’

Written by on April 30, 2017

Shannen Doherty has some great news to share.

The actress, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, revealed Friday that her cancer is in remission.

“Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment,” the former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star wrote on Instagram. “What does remission mean? I heard that word and have no idea how to react. Good news? YES. Overwhelming. YES. Now more waiting.”

Doherty, though, remained cautious as she decides on further treatment and what challenges could lie ahead.

“As every single one of my fellow cancer family knows, the next five years is crucial,” she added. “Reoccurrences happen all the time. Many of you have shared that very story with me. So with a heart that is certainly lighter, I wait. In the meantime, decisions. Reconstruction which is several surgeries. Decision on taking a pill for the next five years that comes with its own set of problems and side effects. I am blessed, I know that. But for now…. remission. I’m going to just breathe.”
