Shannen Doherty Marks Cancer Remission With ‘Sexy’ Pixie Cut
Shannen Doherty's been free of cancer for four months, and looking happier and healthier than ever.
The Charmed actress, who was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, formally announced in April that she was in remission, and in an Instagram photo posted yesterday (August 7), she said her growing hair — and the work of a talented stylist — have left her feeling positively lifted.
"Thank you@anhcotran for the 'sexy Parisian' cut," Doherty noted. "After two years of either bald or a crew cut, it's nice to feel a bit more like a woman again."
And fans showered Doherty with adoration and well wishes.
"You look gorgeous hun, with a real healthy glow," one noted, while another wrote "it absolutely warms my heart to see you doing better :) you're truly an inspiration of beauty and strength."
Doherty noted in her initial remission announcement that she was wary of treating the prognosis like a complete victory — in many cases, cancer returns, she pointed out.
"Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment," she wrote with an Instagram image. "So with a heart that is certainly lighter, I wait. In the meantime, decisions. Reconstruction which is several surgeries. Decision on taking a pill for the next five years that comes with its own set of problems and side effects. I am blessed, I know that. But for now.... remission. I'm going to just breathe."
