Shannen Doherty opened up about the stress she’s feeling during her cancer journey. She thanked fans for their support, after recently revealing that she has stage 4 cancer. She shared a photo of what appears to be her riding a horse, with a mini horse trailing behind.

In the caption, she wrote, “I want to thank all of you for your love, prayers, and support. It’s an odd time right now and I find my feet not completely underneath me. To say I have stress is an understatement. To say that I’m struggling is mild. But… I believe that I will find my footing. I’ll dig deep for the inner strength I need to face it all. I pray I do it all with dignity and grace. I have so much to say. So much to share. I will. For now… please know how much you all help lift me.”

The actress went into remission for breast cancer in 2017. Sadly, the cancer has now returned. She shared the diagnosis with fans on Good Morning America. She said, “It’s going to come out in a matter of days or a week that I’m stage 4. So my cancer came back, and that’s why I’m here. I don’t think I’ve processed it. It’s a bitter pill to swallow in a lot of ways.”

She also admitted that she waited to share her diagnosis because she didn’t want people to treat her differently. She still wanted to have work opportunities and enjoy her life, even though she is struggling with the worst that can happen.
