American actress Shannen Doherty has revealed that her cancer is back. In 2015 she was first diagnosed with breast cancer then went into remission in 2017.
The actress appeared on Good Morning America to share that she is suffering from breast cancer again. She said she has stage 4 breast cancer.
Shannen revealed that she was diagnosed with breast cancer last year but she kept this news private. She revealed it now because of her ongoing lawsuit against insurance company State Farm over damage to her home from a 2018 wildfire.
She said: “It’s going to come out in a matter of days or week that I am Stage 4, my cancer came back and that’s why I am here. It’s a bitter pill to swallow in a lot of ways,’ she said, adding: ‘I’m petrified. I’m pretty scared.”
Doherty’s home was damaged in the Wolseley fire. She tried to make a claim against State Farm to repair some of the damage that has been one of the hardest things she has ever done.
The insurance company said that they paid $1.1 million but Doherty said that she is entitled to more.
