Shannen Doherty makes a point to stay positive amid her ongoing treatments for stage 4 breast cancer.

On Friday, the 50-year-old actress shared a post on Instagram, talking about the small wins from her latest visit.

She wrote, “Early morning doctors visit for scans. Blurry eyed. Hair askew but the new bandage wraps made me smile! #cancerslayer”

In October 2020, Doherty announced that her cancer had come back the year before. Since then, she has been sharing all of the good, bad and ugly of her cancer treatments.

She wrote at the time, “Is it all pretty? NO but it’s truthful and my hope in sharing is that we all become more educated, more familiar with what cancer looks like. I hope I encourage people to get mammograms, to get regular checkups, to cut thru the fear and face whatever might be in front of you.”

“I had many nose bleeds from the chemo. Not sure if any of you experienced this. I also was beyond tired,” she continued. “I cheered myself up by putting on funny pajamas that my friend Kristy gave me. Did they actually cheer me up? Yes!! Lol.”

“I looked ridiculous and in that ridiculousness, I was able to laugh at myself,” she added. “Finding humor helped get me thru what seemed impossible. I hope we all find humor in the impossible.”

The Beverly Hills, 90210 star also said that she is trying to show people that it is possible to enjoy life despite getting diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.

In an October interview with ABC News, she said, “I think work was always very fulfilling to me, but in a way it’s become even more fulfilling. A lot of people who get diagnosed with stage 4, they sort of get written off.”

“It’s assumed that they cannot work or they can’t work at their full capacity,” she added. “And that is not true and that is something that I would really like for people to sort of stop assuming, and give us a chance to prove them wrong.”

“A bucket list almost feels like those are things to check off before you die, and I never want to operate like that,” Doherty explained. “I just want to operate as, I don’t have things to check off because I’m going to keep fighting to stay alive.”
