It seems Shannen Doherty is getting support from her former TV family, in addition to her real life loved ones, as she battles breast cancer!

On Wednesday, Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Jason Priestley offered words of love and support for his former TV sister only a week after the 45-year-old bravely shaved her head for a series of pics on Instagram. Aww!

During a chat with Entertainment Tonight at a fundraiser for the Michael J. Fox Foundation, Jason shared:

“What she did the other day, shaving her head and posting the pictures and everything, that was incredibly brave. Shannen’s a strong kid and a tough fighter and I know that she’s gonna come through this fight and she’s gonna be OK.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves! The Tru Calling actor also commended the Heathers star for using her social media accounts to “shine a light and help other people”. Tissues, anyone?

However, Jason wasn’t the only 90210 vet to send well wishes Shannen’s way as Tiffani Thiessen (who replaced Doherty on the hit show) added:

“I wish her all the best, of course.”

We can only imagine these kind words mean the world to the Charmed star as she continues to battle her illness. Stay strong, Shannen!
