Shannen Doherty Looks Amazing After Her Last Chemo Treatment

Posted on

Shannen Doherty has been very vocal about her battle with breast cancer over the last couple of years. She has shared a lot of the experience with her fans through social media and has been outspoken about her disease.

She first revealed her diagnosis to PEOPLE in August of 2015 when she wrote this exclusive statement, “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.”

The animal lover and advocate recently finished her chemo treatment and days later was seen on the red carpet at the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation’s Gratitude Gala with founder Marc Ching.

She spoke to PEOPLE again at the event and commented, “I feel great. I feel great, I feel like lucky. Lucky that I’m here, lucky that I’m standing next to Marc, lucky that I get to be a part of this foundation, lucky that we get to be a voice tonight for the voiceless and just lucky.”

“I’ve had a few heroes in my life. My dad, who passed away six and a half years ago who was my best friend and absolute hero, and Marc,” Doherty says. “Marc is a hero to me and I look up to him and I admire him. I don’t know how many times I say to myself like, ‘I wish I could be him. I wish I could do what he does. I wish I could be change like he is change.’ So, I called them and begged to clean dogs, to do whatever I had to do.”

Its unclear whether Doherty is out of the woods yet with her cancer battle, but she looks remarkable and has a great spirit and attitude.
