Shannen Doherty, famous for her role as Brenda Walsh in the television series “Beverly Hills, 90210,” posted on Instagram that her breast cancer is in remission.
The 46-year-old actress has been very public about her disease on social media and in interviews. She has shared the diagnosis with fans going back to 2015, when she filed a lawsuit against her former business managers claiming they mismanaged her finances and allowed her health insurance to lapse.
Doherty sued Tanner, Mainstain, Glynn & Johnson and Steven Blatt, alleging they failed to pay her medical insurance premiums. In her suit, the actress said she was diagnosed with breast cancer and that it metastasized while she was not insured and therefore unable to regularly see a doctor.
Doherty eventually settled her suit for an undisclosed amount.
On Instagram she said of her remission, it is “good news” and “overwhelming.”
