Shannen Doherty recounts going from full panic attack to calm determination in emotional Instagram post Instagram Screenshot

Shannen Doherty’s battle with breast cancer is a daily struggle, and she has taken us on that emotional journey via frequent Instagram documentation.

In a Friday post, Doherty recounted how a radiation plan had her freaking out, but that thanks to her immense inner strength and an amazing radiation oncologist, she made it through.

“Ct scan to do mapping for radiation plan. This scared me so much. Not sure why. Was supposed to get it with contrast but the minute they started looking at which vein to use I started crying. Full panic attack. Sometimes, you just get sick of being poked. And that’s ok. I cried,” Doherty wrote as her caption. “I felt sorry for myself for a minute. Then stopped and reminded myself of how lucky I am. Thank God my new radiation oncologist decided to try without contrast so I would calm down. So…. one panic attack down and mapping done!! Now to actually start radiation… #cancerslayer #warrior#fightlikeagirl #blessed
