Shannen Doherty is no stranger to being honest about her life online. The star, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2015, has been open about her fight on social media, posting inspirational messages and photos of shaving her head to Instagram. But now, she’s taken it one step further. In a move meant to show the reality of what it’s like to battle breast cancer, Doherty has posted candid photos of herself at chemotherapy to her account.
In the photos, which Doherty captioned as “the many faces of cancer,” Doherty bares the painful reality of what chemo day is like. In one photo, she’s seen being held by her husband — Kurtis Iswarienko — as she undergoes treatment. In another, more visceral shot, she’s photographed while having “the red devil” (Adriamycin) injected into her chest.
