Shannen Doherty battles breast cancer

Doherty is battling breast cancer. The former Beverly Hills 90210 star was diagnosed in March 2015 and has been forced to disclose the illness now after legal documents surfaced on entertainment news website TMZ, revealing that the actress is suing her former business manager for failing to pay her insurance premiums, which allowed her health insurance to lapse, during which time Doherty did not receive medical care. 

The 44-year-old actress was informed that had she been insured and able to visit the doctor the cancer would have been caught earlier. Doherty discovered that she had "invasive breast cancer metastatic to at least one lymph node, and the cancer spread during 2014" the lawsuit reveals. Doherty will likely have to suffer through chemotherapy and a mastectomy now.

Shifting into a slightly less newsy mode and into a more personal one. I am a huge fan of Shannen Doherty from her Beverly Hills 90210 and her Charmed days. I was so shocked to hear the news. I hope she is staying positive and I hope she finds the strength to get through this. I wish you a speedy recovery Shannen!
