It is terrible to see a close friend or family member go through cancer, even if the cancer is eventually beaten.
Cancer is obviously very bad for the people who have it, but what’s less often talked about is how it affects the person’s family and friends.
Happily, most people who are dealing with this terrible sickness are lucky enough to have a network of people who can help them through the hardest times.
We should depend on each other, and the power and support of a friend or family member can really make a difference.
In June of this year, 52-year-old actress Shannen Doherty said that her stage 4 cancer had spread to her brain. Her fans all over the world were shocked and saddened by her news.
The star of Beverly Hills, 90210, and Charmed was first told she had breast cancer in 2015. After treatment, she went into recovery two years later.
On Good Morning America in 2020, Doherty saddened everyone by saying that she had stage 4 cancer, not just that it had come back.
It will be publicised in a few days or a week that she is in stage four. “That’s why I’m here—my cancer came back.”
When asked why she had hidden the news from the public for a year, Doherty said, “I don’t think I’ve processed it.” Numerous ways make it a difficult pill to swallow.
That must have been a very hard year, but we do know that the actress mostly kept her terrible diagnosis to herself while she worked on a reboot of BH90210.
Brian Austin Green, who worked with her on Beverly Hills, 90210, was one of the few people she trusted.
“There were times when I felt very anxious and thought, ‘I can’t really do this,’ and Brian was the only person in that group who knew. I told him pretty quickly, ‘Here’s what I’m dealing with,'” she said.
“This is why he always called me before a shoot and said, ‘Listen, you know, whatever happens, I’ve got your back.'” He’d look at me and say, “Kid, we got this”…Brian greatly assisted me in many ways.
Now, in an interview with the Herald Sun, Green gave new information about how his close friend is doing.
He said, “We talk all the time.” “She is unbelievably tough.” She is definitely someone who could really fight cancer.
“Definitely not an easy situation, but I love her so much.”
“She’s really making the best of things.”
There are a lot of people who admire Doherty for being so honest about her fight with cancer. She has been very honest with her fans and tried to keep them up to date at all times.
Doherty shared video of her first radiotherapy treatment in June of this year, saying, “On January 5th, my CT scan showed Mets in my brain.” Yesterday’s movie showed how to get the mask that you wear while getting radiation to your brain fitted.
“The initial dose of radiation happened. It’s clear what I fear. A lot was going on in my life, and I’m very afraid of being squished.
Thanks to great doctors like Dr. Amin Mirahdi and the great staff at Cedar Sinai, I’m lucky. This is what cancer can look like, though: fear, chaos, and bad timing.
