Actress Shannen Doherty Discusses Treatment Team In Cancer Fight
Shannen Doherty is praising the team that is helping her overcome breast cancer in each phase of her treatment regiment
E! Online reported that the 90210 and Charmed actress was diagnosed with the disease in 2015 and has documented her battle on Instagram. She has undergone a single mastectomy, chemotherapy and most recently completed radiation therapy, marking the last of her most grueling cancer treatments.
Doherty posted on Instagram Friday a photo of herself, her Beverly Hills-based radiation oncologist and two medical staff members standing in front of a radiation therapy machine nicknamed Maggie.
“Thank you Vantage Oncology and Dr Leslie Botnick,” Doherty wrote. “Thank you to all that work there, especially Anna, Vince, Mike (pictured here) and Jackie.”
“And a big thank you to Maggie,” she added. “Everyday you rotated around me, I knew you were zapping the last of those pesky micro cells lingering behind. Here’s hoping I never see you again sweet Maggie!!! #lovethiscrew #cancerslayer”
After completing her radiation therapy, Doherty headed to get her gray hair dyed brown. It has started to grow back after she finished chemo.
“What do you do to celebrate end of radiation? You run to @ramireztransalon and see @johnnyramirez1 to transform your hair color (let him do whatever he wants cause he’s that good and that lovely) and then sit with @anhcotran for the best haircut and just to revel in his pure radiance,” she wrote. “Love these two. #cancerslayer with good hair now!!!”
