Shannen Doherty is setting the record straight about some "cancer truths."
The Beverly Hills 90210 actress is currently battling breast cancer. In a recent Instagram post, she detailed a very unfortunate event that happened at the hospital just moments after she had received a round of radiation.
In her Instagram post, she detailed the occurrence:
"Driving home from radiation with my love @kurtiswarienko. Today, we are in an elevator and I was asked how I was feeling. I responded by saying that I had just gotten a radiation treatment so therefore very tired. The random girl on the elevator with us physically lunged away as far as she could. She then proceeded to look horrified for the next three floors. Just a head's up...1. You can't catch it. 2. The radiation won't leak out of me and go into you. Hope that helps."
It's heartbreaking and difficult enough to undergo something as devastating as cancer, but when someone reacts in a way such as that, it certainly doesn't make the journey any better.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Shannen, as you tackle this beast. You can do it!
