Shannen Doherty is currently undergoing grueling radiation treatments to fight breast cancer. Throughout her medical treatments, the Beverly Hills, 90210 star has been open and raw with her fans, sharing photos, videos, and inspiring messages on social media.
On Thursday, Doherty posted a photo from her radiation center, thanking the machine itself, which she named Maggie.
Her full caption reads:
This is Maggie. I've seen Maggie five days a week for what seems like forever. We have a love hate relationship. I love her because she's part of the life saving treatment I'm receiving. It's astounding how far we have come with technology. One day, Maggie will be retired and the cure will be found. Things like immunotherapy are the future but for now.... it's me and Maggie. I'm seeing her twice tomorrow so that I can wrap this phase up faster. Goodnight sweet Maggie. See ya tomorrow. #cancerslayer
At first, Doherty posted that she found radiation "frightening." But she has remained optimistic throughout, calling herself a "cancer slayer." She posted a photo of her working out with her personal trainer, dancing despite feeling exhausted. "Have to move to stay motivated!" she wrote.
