Shannen Doherty admits fearing she won’t survive cancer

But she still believes "hope is possible"

Shannen Doherty has told how she sometimes fears she won’t survive her battle with breast cancer.

The former Beverly Hills 90210 star has been documenting her fight against the disease on social media.

In her latest post, Shannen shared an image of herself in a hospital bed as she had treatment and admitted that at low points “it feels likes you aren’t going to make it”.

However, she added that it passes and then “hope is possible”.

She wrote: “#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, 45, revealed that she was fighting breast cancer in August last year, after being diagnosed in March.
