We’ve been on board with Shannen Doherty every step of the way since her breast cancer diagnosis, and it breaks our hearts to hear that she was treated strangely by a total, um, stranger. But cancer is one of those things that makes many people feel anxious; hence why Doherty is sharing what happened and dropping some truth bombs about the realities of the disease.

In her Instagram post, Doherty shared that a woman ‘lunged away’ from her in an elevator after overhearing her mention that she had radiation treatment that day.

Doherty has been nothing but 100% open and honest about her experience with cancer, and that clearly hasn’t changed. She went on to set the record straight about cancer and radiation.

That’s absolutely right. Cancer is not contagious, and we appreciate Doherty’s humor, positive attitude, and unshakable zest for life — not just in this post, but in every one of them (remember when she dressed her dog up for Halloween?). She’s kicking ass and living each day to the fullest.

Here she is with her mom (we love the holidays too, lady!).

Keep being real with us, Shannen! So much love to you.
