Doherty has frequently mentioned her mother, Rosa, on Instagram and said she's her rock, giving her the support she needs to keep fighting. Rosa "has taught me so much about strength, dignity, and grace," she wrote last week.

The actress also posted a photo with two members of her radiation team, and she encouraged other cancer patients to be vocal and speak up with doctors. "None of this is easy, but a great team can make it more pleasant," she wrote on Instagram.

Not all her posts are so clinical, though. A few days ago, Doherty shared a video of her dancing with a personal trainer. She wrote about how exercise has kept her motivated throughout her grueling treatments. "It's so easy to get depressed in the battle against cancer, but every day I wake up and remind myself to be happy to be alive, relatively healthy, and able to move," she wrote. She even brought her mother to dance class to celebrate her birthday.
