Sarah Michelle Gellar is standing by fellow actress Shannen Doherty.

The former “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star took to Instagram Monday and offered some kind words to her dear friend.

“My #mondaymuse (and really every day #muse) is my brave friend @theshando,” Gellar wrote. “I’ve always said she is one of the most loyal friends I’ve ever known, and now while she is facing the toughest journey of her life, she is sharing it with friends she has never met in the hopes of helping other people who are going through the same struggle. That’s a true friend #FuckCancer.”

Doherty has been documenting her own journey through treatment. Last week, she revealed the cancer has spread from her breasts to her lymph nodes. She has undergone three rounds of chemotherapy and has had a single mastectomy. When she completes her chemo, Doherty will continue her fight with radiation treatments.

On Saturday, she posted a message to fans, quoting R.M. Drake.

She was fierce, she was strong, she wasn’t simple. She was crazy and sometimes she barely slept. She always had something to say. She had flaws and that was ok. And when she was down, she got right back up. She was a beast in her own way, but one idea described her best. She was unstoppable and she took anything she wanted with a smile. R.M. Drake. #cancersucks #warrior #fightlikeagirl.”

Keep fighting, Shannen!
