Shannen Doherty posted an emotional yet inspiring #FBF Instagram post on Friday, October 21.
The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum, who is battling breast cancer, posted a black-and-white photo of herself at the hospital from after she underwent chemotherapy.
“#fbf to a very short bit ago. Day after #chemoday isn’t always so great. Sometimes one isn’t able to dance, or eat or even to think about the next day. Sometimes it just feels like you aren’t going to make it. That passes. Sometimes the next day or 2 days later or 6 but it passes and movement is possible. Hope is possible. Possibility is possible. To my cancer family and everyone suffering…. stay courageous. Stay strong. Stay positive. #wegotthis. #fightlikeagirl,” she captioned the photo, in which she lies curled up in a hospital bed.
As previously reported, Doherty, 45, shared an equally emotional Instagram video of herself dancing in the gym just one day after she had chemo treatment earlier this month.
“It’s not always easy and sometimes I can’t do it the next day but I try to make an effort to get the blood flowing and the toxins out of my body thru working out,” she explained in the post on October 6, adding that it just feels better to “keep moving.”
The actress was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2015 and had a single mastectomy this past May. In August she revealed that the cancer had spread and she was going to undergo chemotherapy followed by radiation.
Doherty has been documenting her battle on social media and has been vocal about exercising through the pain.
“Yes I was tired, yes I wanted to be in bed but I went and moved and felt way better,” she wrote alongside another workout video earlier this month. “Any exercise during illness is good. We can do it!!!”
“I believe that if I fight, I’m gonna be OK,” she shared back in July.
