Shannen Doherty Reveals She Has An ‘Upcoming Surgery’ A Year After Breast Cancer Remission Announcement

Shannen Doherty is still fighting for her health.

One year after announcing her breast cancer remission, the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum has revealed that she’s undergoing a surgery. The Heathers actress made this announcement, alongside the photo (above), as she was required to bank her blood. Meaning, she had to store her own blood ahead of the procedure.

She wrote:

“My doctor had me bank some blood for my upcoming surgery. Mars P was patient with me and didn’t even roll his eyes at my anxiety over the needle size. He was patient, kind and really good. As I sat there banking blood for myself, I asked him about some of the people also donating… especially the ones with TVs. So two of them come every 2 weeks and donate platelets which takes 2 hours. Another girl comes as often as allowed to donate blood. To say I’m moved by the generosity of people is an understatement. I’m vowing that as long as I’m cleared in the future, I will start donating. Thank you to those selfless humans that donate. Thank you to Mars and all at the clinic in Woodland Hills for your smiles and hard work. Thank you to the @americanredcross #humbledagain.”

This update comes weeks after Doherty received some concerning test results. Thankfully, Shannen has since reassured her fans that she’s “still in remission.”

While we know cancer is a war fought one battle at a time, we think Shannen has truly embodied her #cancerslayer title. Although we don’t know what surgery Shannen is undergoing, we’re wishing her only the speediest of recoveries!!
