Shannen Doherty has recently announced that her stage-4 cancer has spread to her brain, and that she expects to spend the remainder of her life in treatment.
She recently surprised fans with a health update via Instagram, where she wrote:
“January 12, 2023. On January 5th, my ct scan showed Mets [Metastatic Brain Tumors] in my brain. Yesterdays video was showing the process of getting fitted for the mask which you wear during radiation to your brain,” “January 12, the first round of radiation took place. My fear is obvious. I am extremely claustrophobic and there was a lot going on in my life. I am fortunate as I have great doctors like Dr Amin Mirahdi and the amazing techs at cedar sinai. But that fear…. The turmoil….. the timing of it all…. This is what cancer can look like.”
Her situation is exacerbated by the fact that her husband, Kurt Iswarienko, filed for divorce shortly after her diagnosis. At the time, her agent told TMZ, “Divorce is the last thing Shannen wanted. Unfortunately, she felt she was left with no other option. You can contact Kurt’s agent, Collier Grimm at PICTUREKID as she is intimately involved.”
While the phrase “intimately involved” might turn heads, there has been no confirmation of any sort of affair, although Doherty has requested that Iswarienko not receive any sort of spousal support.
We will update this story as information is released.
