Shannen Doherty Shaves Her Head During Ongoing Battle with Breast Cancer
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.
