Since her breast cancer diagnosis, Shannen Doherty has been sharing her journey on social media. Through her incredibly personal posts, she has shown her strength, weakness, and her utter will to kick cancer in the ass. On Thursday, Doherty shared a video from her reconstructive surgeon’s office, and it’s truly eye-opening.

Doherty has been so open about shaving her head, chemotherapy treatments, radiation, and now her reconstructive surgery.

She’s been allowing the world in for a glimpse of what it’s really like having cancer, and that’s so important.

In her latest video, Doherty is at Dr. Jay Orringer’s office to increase the size of her expander. She’s getting ready to undergo radiation, which will shrink it.

Doherty certainly isn’t alone in her fight. She has the undying support of so many of her friends, many of whom have posted their encouragement on social media. Last week, for instance, the cast of 90210 had a reunion Doherty wasn’t able to attend. Jennie Garth (AKA Kelly Taylor) posted a “Fight like a Brenda” image on Instagram.

Chelsea Handler has also been showing support for her friend on social media and on her show Chelsea. Doherty was a guest on the show a couple of weeks ago and had a very emotional discussion with Chelsea about her cancer.

We’re continuing to send the most positive and healing thoughts Doherty’s way.
