Shannen Doherty Vows to "Fight Like a Girl" During Her Radiation Treatment

Shannen Doherty continues to inspire us all as she battles breast cancer. On Monday, the actress documented her first round of radiation treatment with a heartfelt post on Instagram. "First day of radiation treatment. I look like I'm about to make a run for it, which is accurate," she captioned the snap of her proudly sporting a bald head. "Radiation is frightening to me. Something about not being able to see the laser, see the treatment and having this machine moving around you just scares me. I'm sure I'll get used to it but right now.... I hate it. #radiation #radiationmondaysucks #stillfightinglikeagirl."

Since her diagnosis in February 2015, Shannen has been very outspoken about her fight by sharing updates on social media and attending various fundraising events. She even talked to Chelsea Handler about what she's learned through this emotional process during a sit-down on her show. "I think what's beautiful and hard and interesting about cancer is that it tears you down and builds you, and tears you down and builds you," she said. "It remakes you so many different times." She truly is a warrior.
