Shannen Doherty Got Her Head Shaved as She Battles Breast Cancer


Shannen Maria Doherty, an American actress, producer, author, and television director, has gotten her head shaved, almost a year after she revealed she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

She is known for her roles as Brenda Walsh in Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990–94), and as Prue Halliwell in Charmed (1998–2001).

Doherty gathered worldwide attention and fame for her breakout role as Brenda Walsh in the Aaron Spelling-produced TV series Beverly Hills, 90210 in 1990. In 1991 and 1992 her portrayal of Brenda earned her a Young Artist Award nomination for Best Young Actress Starring in a Television Series.

Shannen Doherty exposed to PEOPLE exclusively that she is battling breast cancer.

“Yes, I have breast cancer, and I am currently undergoing treatment,” the actress said in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE.

“I am continuing to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life,” she continued. “I am thankful to my family, friends and doctors for their support and, of course, my fans who have stood by me.”

” I couldn’t be prouder of you today,” Kortright-Shilstat wrote. “Your strength and courage is so inspiring and I am so very lucky to have you in my life. Thank you for blindly trusting me today to help you with such a big step. I will forever be there for you no matter what. #f–cancer.”

Sarah Michelle Gellar, star of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, posted one of Doherty’s pics on her Instagram page, saying, ” It already takes a strong woman to fight breast cancer, but it takes an even stronger woman to share that journey. @theshando you are not fighting alone, you have the thoughts and prayers of not only all of us that know and love you, but the rest of the world too.”

According to the lawsuit, she was first detected in March 2015. She “discovered that she had breast cancer metastatic to at least one lymph node,” and “was informed that her cancer had spread during 2014 (when she was uninsured).”

Doherty has been unable to work since the diagnosis and has suffered “significant” medical expenses.
