Cancer gives Shannen Doherty no respite. The former Beverly Hills 90210 star revealed that the disease has reached her bones, but despite this she is not willing to give up. “I don’t want to die,” she said in an interview with People who dedicated the cover of the December 11 issue to her. “I’m not finished living, I’m not finished loving, I’m not finished creating her – she added – I’m not finished with the hope of being able to change things for the better, for the moment I’m not finished”.

Doherty will discuss her illness on the podcast titled ‘Let’s Be Clear with Shannen Doherty,’ which launches December 6 on iHeartRadio. The actress was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. She underwent mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Two years later the cancer seemed to be in remission, but in 2020 she announced that it had returned and was in stage four. Earlier this year she underwent further surgery to remove a brain tumor, which she named ‘Bob’.

«When he asked you Why me? Why do I have cancer? Why did he come back? Why is he in the fourth stage? ‘It makes you look for a greater purpose in life » she explained. He also revealed that he goes to bed and wakes up praying, thanking God for important things and not asking for too much. «My faith is my mantra», he underlined.
