Earlier this week, Shannen Doherty made a heartbreaking announcement. Her breast cancer has returned and now she has stage 4.

The Charmed star revealed the sad news during her interview with Good Morning America. Shannen said:

I don't think I've processed it. It's a bitter pill to swallow in a lot of ways.

Claim from an insurance company

While Doherty is currently going through the toughest period in her life, some people suggested that the actress just used her cancer to get sympathy.

Insurance company State Farm suspected Shannen of telling her cancer story just to raise money for her home repairing, Page Six reported.

The court documents state:

Plaintiff improperly claims she is entitled to have her entire home rebuilt at a cost of $2.7 million because she has breast cancer.

Social media users and Shannen Doherty’s devoted fans got furious about these accusations and rushed to defend the actress.

Shannen Doherty’s cancer journey

  • Shannen Doherty was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015.
  • After lasting treatment, the star announced she had a remission in 2017.
  • Amid her cancer battle, Doherty filed a lawsuit against her former business managers for “allowing her health insurance to lapse.”
  • At the beginning of 2019, Shannen Doherty confessed she had struggles with accepting her post-cancer body, but she was happy to stay alive:

I’m trying to figure out how to accept who I am now… I look at it like I’m lucky to be alive every minute, every second of the day.

We just can’t figure it out how cruel people should be (we talk about insurance company) to suggest that someone would fake his/her cancer diagnosis just to get sympathy?! How low some people could hit the ground!

We wish Shannen Doherty to stay strong amid her cancer battle and to pay no attention to bad comments. We keep praying for the actress and her recovery!
