Former “90210” actress Shannen Doherty has revealed the unthinkable – she has breast cancer.
Legal documents surfaced on the internet stating that Shannen was suing her former business manager for not paying her insurance premiums. She claims that her health insurance lapsed as a result and she was unable to receive medical care at that time.
She received her breast cancer diagnosis in March 2015, according to the lawsuit. The docs revealed that she “discovered that she had invasive breast cancer metastatic to at least one lymph node” and “was informed that her cancer had spread during 2014 (when she was uninsured).”
In a new statement, Shannen said, “Yes, I have breast cancer, and I am currently undergoing treatment. I am continuing to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life. I am thankful to my family, friends and doctors for their support and, of course, my fans who have stood by me.”
Thankfully she’s taking good care of herself now. Here’s hoping that it doesn’t get worse.
