Shannen Doherty steps out for shopping trip after announcing she's completed chemo
The 45-year-old actress wore a loose-fitting black sweater and jeans while shopping in Venice, California, on Monday. Doherty shaved her head before getting treatment for her cancer, but during her recent outing, it appeared that her brunette hair was growing back.
A few days prior to the mother-daughter shopping trip, the Beverly Hills, 90210 star posted a flashback photo of herself from October when she still had a shaved head. "#fbf to this morning. Oct7,2016... not that long ago," she wrote before revealing that she had just endured the "last day of chemo."
"Exhausted. Now that I'm done with chemo and radiation, the waiting game is here," she continued. "Waiting for test. Waiting to see if I'm clear or not. Waiting for reconstruction. Waiting. I think when one gets cancer, they are always waiting to a certain extent. To those who know... I'm waiting with you. #cancerslayer"
In December, Doherty was honored with the Courage Award at the American Cancer Society's inaugural Giants of Science Gala, and told ET that she was accepting the award on "behalf of every single cancer patient out there" for their "courage."
"Courage isn't something that comes to you immediately," she said during her acceptance speech. "It's not something that you have fully. Courage is something that you gain and it grows. Courage is facing every day and every obstacle one step at a time."
