Shannen Doherty has been public about her battle with breast cancer since revealing she was diagnosed in August 2015. In her latest heart-wrenching Instagram posts, the Charmed star took fans through the process of shaving off her brunette locks.

“Cupcake pan, chocolates and a razor… stay tuned,” Doherty captioned a post on Tuesday night. “@annamkortright has got this. #cancersucks #thankgodforfriends.”

The Beverly Hills 90210 actress then chronicled the six steps of the process, with her friend Anne Kortright-Shilstat and mom Rosa Elizabeth by her side. In the first photo, the mother-daughter duo looks forlorn as they share an embrace.

Doherty takes a scissor to her locks, posing for selfies with her companions and trying to make light of the sad situation.

In the final shot, the 45-year-old star looks wistfully away from the camera as she shows off her new buzzed head.

We’re sending our thoughts and well-wishes to Doherty and her family.
