Shannen Doherty reveals her cancer has returned: 'I'm stage 4'

Shannen Doherty reveals her cancer has returned: 'I'm stage 4'”

Doherty told "GMA" on Tuesday morning she had been keeping her stage 4 cancer diagnosis a secret while she had been working on a reboot past year of "90210" - "BH90210" - the report says.

Shannen Doherty, 48, has revealed she has stage IV cancer, three years after going into remission following a brutal breast cancer battle.

Doherty had secretly been diagnosed with stage IV when Perry died of a stroke in February past year.

Having been most anxious about telling her mother, Rosa, and film producer husband, Kurt Iswarienko, Doherty explained that she wanted to go public with the news herself. I'm overly cautious at this point.

"I don't think that I've processed it", Doherty said on the ABC morning show. I definitely value every second that I have and my relationships have changed for the better.

Her announcement comes nearly 11 months to the day since Perry died at age 52 and she said his death in part inspired her to keep working.

Doherty said she kept her diagnosis secret as she filmed the Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot BH90210 in 2019, just months after her former co-star Luke Perry's death. "And then I go, well, why not me? It's not fair and I'm taking a stand for all of us", Doherty said.

The State Farm lawsuit, she said, has been a grueling process. "I would say that my first reaction is always concern about how am I going to tell my mom, my husband". She said she chose to come forward with her diagnosis because legal documents, which mention her cancer, will soon be made public ahead of the trial. She said she didn't tell anyone about the recent diagnosis because she wanted to prove that she was still able to work. "It was really, like, shocking". "And the least I could do to honor him was to do that show". "And then I go, well, why not me?" she said. "So it's a hard one". However, she also added that this is what pushed her to appear on BH90210, despite being sick. "Our life doesn't end the minute we get that diagnosis".

"I'd rather people hear it from me", she said. "We still have some living to do", she added.

"I had moments of great anxiety where I thought, 'I can't really do this, ' and Brian was the one person who. of that group of people that knew, that I told, like, pretty quickly", Doherty said. "Prior to shooting, he would always call me and say, listen, whatever happens, I have your back", she explained.
