Shannen Doherty Shares Raw Look At Cancer And Hope
Hollywood TV star Shannen Doherty has always been known as a straight-shooter. And her raw, moving photos of her battle with cancer are no exception.
Shannen’s poignant photos show hope in the midst of pain. . .even on dreaded chemo day.
#fbf to a very short bit ago. Day after #chemoday isn’t always so great. Sometimes one isn’t able to dance, or eat or even to think about the next day. Sometimes it just feels like you aren’t going to make it. That passes. Sometimes the next day or 2 days later or 6 but it passes and movement is possible. Hope is possible. Possibility is possible. To my cancer family and everyone suffering…. stay courageous. Stay strong. Stay positive. #wegotthis. #fightlikeagirl
Shannen credits her strong support system including her much beloved husband, seen here on ‘chemo day’ and on their wedding day.
My friend @sarahmgellar softly suggested a challenge to @kurtiswarienko and myself to do the 7 day #loveyourspousechallenge and we accepted! She was telling me about going thru old photos and the memories and emotions they evoke. This morning, I felt that and I’m thankful Sarah challenged us. Our wedding was exceptional and not for the big event it was. It was exceptional because we committed for better or worse, in sickness or in health to love and cherish one another. Those vows have never meant more than they do now. Kurt has stood by my side thru sickness and makes me feel more loved now than ever. I would walk any path with this man. Take any bullet for him and slay every dragon to protect him. He is my soul mate. My other half. I am blessed.
And by sharing with the world those moments that have the power to bring you down. . .
she essentially takes away their power.
