Shannen Doherty Shares Emotional Message After Shaving Head

A week after sharing photos of her shaving her head, Shannen Doherty is back on Instagram with an emotional message.

Sharing a photo of her cleanly shorn hair, the former Beverly Hills 90210 star, who has been battling breast cancer, told fans this was her “squad”.

“Thank you to these three who helped me thru an impossibly tough day and continue to be there every minute supporting and loving me. @kurtiswarienko was in Mexico working but knew he left me in good hands. @annemkortright @chriscortazzo #mamarosa I love you. #mycrew #thisisasquad”

Last week the 45-year-old shared six candid images on her account and was seen initially breaking down in tears as she shave her hair off.

During the emotional process, Doherty was surrounded by friends, who posed for selfies with the star and helped her with the razor.

Earlier this year, the actress gave an update on her health while on The Dr Oz Show.

During the program she explained she can no longer have children due to the severity of the treatment she is undergoing.

She also said that she will have to undergo surgery soon.

“I'm 44 and my husband and I wanted children,” she revealed.

She is currently on medicine that prevents her from getting pregnant.

She also shared that the mass is still in her breast and she has not had surgery yet.

Her oncologist wanted the Charmed star to undergo drug treatment and chemotherapy first to see if it would shrink the tumor.

At the time of her appearance on the show, in February, Doherty told Dr Oz she would be getting surgery "soon".
