Shannen Doherty Thanks Fans for Support Amid Terminal Cancer Battle”

"To say I have stress is an understatement", she wrote.

The 48-year-old actress recently revealed she is battling stage-four breast cancer - nearly three years after going into remission from the disease - and has thanked her fans for their support but admits she's finding it tough. "It's an odd time correct now and I uncover my toes not completely beneath me", she wrote alongside {a photograph} of her driving a horse in a grassy space.

Doherty admitted to being "petrified" and "pretty scared" of the health battle ahead of her.

"I definitely have days where I say 'Why me?'". I think I will find my balance. I'll dig deep for the internal energy I must face all of it. "I pray I do it all with dignity and grace", Promises the Charmed actress before telling fans "please know how much you all help lift me".

Fans flooded the comments' section with kindness and encouraging words, with one fan, named LeeAnne sharing her story of being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer three years ago. I've loads to say.

"So is my husband, but I worry about him", she said. It was so weird for me to be diagnosed and then somebody who was seemingly healthy to go first.

Doherty was diagnosed about a year ago, and made a decision to speak out after a court case with her insurance company that detailed her health concerns threatened to make her battle public.

She said: "I'd rather people hear it from me". I want it to be real and authentic. I know you're not alone ... you have all prayer warriors fighting for you.

The "90210" actress is now in a legal battle against State Farm Insurance over the costs of repairs to her home following the 2018 Woolsey fire. I know this is hard and you feel overwhelmed, but I want you to do it. I don't want it to be a court document.

"And I want to control the narrative".

Back in 2017, she shared a picture of herself in hospital on Instagram as part of breast cancer awareness month. While she had previously been open about her cancer journey, she chose to keep the news to herself and her inner circle.
