“Yes, I have breast cancer, and right now I am undergoing treatment,” the actress said in a statement. - I continue to eat right, go to the gym and have a positive attitude. I am grateful to my family, friends, doctors and, of course, fans for their support. ”

The 44-year-old actress became aware of the disease after she filed a lawsuit against the company Tanner Mainstain, which dealt with her affairs and delayed the design of health insurance, which had to be postponed the examination. The statement of claim states that, if everything was done on time, the disease, which was diagnosed in March of this year, could have been diagnosed earlier, at the initial stage. The disease, as stated in the statement, “developed throughout the whole of 2014, when the medical insurance was not yet completed”.

Tanner Mainstain’s lawyers disagree with the allegations made: they claim that the insurance was issued on time, and Mrs Doherty wished for a full and speedy recovery.

Shannen Doherty became famous after the role of Brenda Walsh in "Beverly Hills 90210" and the TV series "Charmed", where she played for three seasons a witch by the name of Prue Halliwell.
