Several years ago, Shannen Doherty was diagnosed with breast cancer which went into remission in 2017. But recently, the disease has returned in stage 4. Her «Charmed» co-star, Alyssa Milano, supported Shannen on Twitter. The actress left the WB show in which she was replaced by Rose McGowan who played her «half-sister» in the series.
Holly Marie Combs, Doherty's co-star in «Charmed», explained why she did not support her friend on Twitter after her announcement of the cancer diagnosis. She just said she doesn't «use social media to send messages to people I've known for 30 years».
These days, Shannen Doherty has shared a sensitive photo of her and her father, John Thomas Doherty Jr., on Instagram. In the pic, she's like 6 or 7, dancing with her dad. In her caption, she wished him a happy birthday saying she'll miss him forever. Her father died ten years ago at the age of 66.
In her caption, Shannen added: «Been a tough day that I wish I could share with you and feel the comfort of your hug and love. Happy birthday. I'm sure you greeted Deb and you two are trading your dark jokes back and forth.»
