What did Shannen Doherty say about her cancer battle?

Speaking to Elle, the star said: “I haven’t sat down to write letters. That’s something I need to do.

“There are things I need to say to my mom. I want my husband to know what he’s meant to me.

I haven’t sat down to write letters. That’s something I need to do.

“But whenever it comes time for me to do it, it feels so final. It feels like you’re signing off, and I’m not signing off.”

Shannen added that it’s “hard to wrap up your affairs when you feel like you’re going to live another 10 or 15 years”.

The Little House on the Prairie actress revealed her diagnosis earlier this year.

She said on Good Morning America: “It’s going to come out in a matter of days or a week that – I’m stage four. So my cancer came back. And that’s why I’m here.

“I don’t think I’ve processed it. It’s a bitter pill to swallow in a lot of ways.

“I definitely have days where I say why me. And then I go, well, why not me? Who else? Who else besides me deserves this? None of us do.

“But I would say that my first reaction is always concern about how – how am I going to tell my mom, my husband.”

The star wrote in February: “To say I have stress is an understatement. To say that I’m struggling is mild. But… I believe that I will find my footing.

“I’ll dig deep for the inner strength I need to face it all. I pray I do it all with dignity and grace. I have so much to say. So much to share.

“I will. For now… please know how much you all help lift me.”
