Shannen Doherty Shares an Emotional Post-Chemo Snap: "Hope Is Possible"

Shannen Doherty is staying strong as she continues her battle with breast cancer. On Friday, the actress posted an incredibly moving post-chemotherapy Instagram photo in honor of Flashback Friday, revealing the side effects of breast cancer and chemo. Along with a black and white snap of herself lying on a hospital bed, she wrote, "#fbf to a very short bit ago. Day after #chemoday isn't always so great. Sometimes one isn't able to dance, or eat or even to think about the next day. Sometimes it just feels like you aren't going to make it. That passes. Sometimes the next day or 2 days later or 6 but it passes and movement is possible. Hope is possible. Possibility is possible."

She gave a sweet shout-out to those also struggling with the disease, adding, "To my cancer family and everyone suffering.... stay courageous. Stay strong. Stay positive. #wegotthis. #fightlikeagirl" Shannen first revealed her breast cancer diagnosis in August, and since then, she's attended a Stand Up to Cancer event, received support from Rose McGowan, and more recently, celebrated her five-year wedding anniversary with husband Kurt Iswarienko.
