Shannen Doherty has had a major medical setback. The actress was diagnosed with breast cancer in February of last year and now, she’s announcing the cancer has spread. She plans on doing chemotherapy followed by radiation and despite having a plan, Doherty explains it’s not knowing what to expect is challenging.

“The unknown is always the scariest part,” Doherty says. “Is the chemo going to work? Is the radiation going to work? You know, am I going to have to go through this again, or am I going to get secondary cancer? Everything else is manageable. Pain is manageable, you know living without a breast is manageable, it’s the worry of your future and how your future is going to affect the people that you love.”

The actress goes on to say that while this is a challenging and scary experience, she hopes being open about her battle will help “comfort” other women going through the same thing. “I wanted to put it out there the way it felt the best for me to put it out there,” Doherty adds. “And also, if I could help one person then it makes me go, ‘Oh okay.’ It’s easier to live with having cancer if I know I’m helping at least one person.” We’re pulling for you, Shannen!
