@sarahmgellar thank you. Your eloquence, class, integrity, intelligence and heart was on full display last night with your speech. You made us laugh, cry and everything in between. We've been friends for a long time and your friendship has always meant the world to me. I love you #courage
“Shannen’s incredible. What she’s done for other women going through it is […] so brave, and that’s what real bravery is, is to go through the hardest part of your life and show people, it’s OK to be scared,” Gellar said. “And it’s OK to be vulnerable, and you can do it.”
Gellar revealed that one thing that keeps Doherty going is an intense dance workout class she takes frequently. Doherty has even been known to drag Gellar to the workouts as well.
“The fact that she gets up and goes to those dance classes? The last thing I want to do is go to these really hard dance classes and sweat that hard and work that hard,” Gellar shared, “but I have to remind myself, if she’s getting up there and doing it, then it’s important that I do it, too.”
Doherty recently completed chemotherapy and radiation after her 2015 cancer diagnosis. She has documented much of her cancer battle on Instagram and has been open about the ups and downs of her journey.
