Over the last several months, Doherty has documented her battle with cancer on her Instagram page, sharing with her fans the many emotional ups and downs she has experienced.


In a new Instagram post, Doherty shared a photo from the beginning stages of her cancer treatment. She then reflected on the wonderful medical care she has received and how she has changed in that time.

“My reconstructive surgeon, Dr Jay Orringer, wanted to have the best outcome possible,” Doherty explains. “That meant a hyperbaric chamber along with many other outside of the box methods. The result… He saved my skin…Literally. We have many procedures in the future but as long as he’s my doctor, I feel safe. I could not be more blessed than with him. The future of cancer treatment should include things like this and covered by insurance so we all can choose methods like this if we want.”
