Shannen Doherty Pays An Emotional Tribute To Her Mother While Staying In The Hospital For Breast Surgery
Shannen Doherty is in the hospital and can’t be thankful enough for unending support of her beloved mom.
On Sunday, the former Charmed star shared a photo of herself lying in a hospital bed, while her mother, Rosa Doherty, leaning over and giving her a comforting hug.
The actress captured the photo with sweet words:
Happy Mother’s Day mom. I only bring you to the best places…..hospital food.. yum. I love you. Thank you for always being there. I’d write more but pain pills are kicking in. @themamarosa #reconstruction.
The Instagram post appeared two and a half years after Doherty opened up she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. At that time, she told PEOPLE:
Yes, I have breast cancer, and I am currently undergoing treatment. I am continuing to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life. I am thankful to my family, friends and doctors for their support and, of course, my fans who have stood by me.
The actress went through a single mastectomy in 2016, after which Doherty was left in tears when she had to get sized for new bras.
The 47-year-old former Beverly Hills, 90210 star shared the post about her second surgery just two weeks after she told her fans she is preparing for an “upcoming surgery”. It came one year after she announced that she had gone into remission.
Doherty’s fans took to Twitter to share their support:
