Shannen Doherty opens on her battle with breast cancer

Survivor: Actress Shannen Doherty, 47, went to Good Morning America on Thursday morning to talk about her battle with cancer and be in remission.

Shannen Doherty appeared on Good Morning America on Thursday morning, where she detailed her battle against breast cancer and how she changed her as a person.

The 47-year-old actress went into remission in April 2017 after a two-year battle with cancer where she had to undergo a mastectomy to prevent the spread of the disease.

"Everything is going really well," Shannen told Robin Roberts, 57, at Good Morning America after spending more than a year in remission. "I want to say that you hear the word remission and it is an avalanche of different emotions."

She continued: "There is a little fear and apprehension."

"All my life has been about this battle, what it felt like all my life, which was not my whole life, but it seems to take over."

The 90210 star was first diagnosed in August 2015 after doctors discovered that the disease had spread to their lymph nodes, meaning it was in stage two or in stage three.

During her trip with the fight against the disease, Shannen was very open with her followers about what was happening.

"I definitely want to share more," Shannen said. "I know how much it helped me share because what I got were these beautiful stories from other people.

& # 39; It's really a family. You join and everyone embraces you. "

Shannen remained shy about how she plans to share more about her trip to cancer since she went into remission, but said it would be an interactive experience rather than a book.

Two prominent people who helped Shannen while battling cancer were her mother, Rosa, and her husband, Rick Iswarienko.

"I had this amazing support team," Shannen said. "I just need people who are really honest … and they love me for me and not for anything else."

Chemotherapy, radiation and surgery were all Shannen treatments for doctors to remove cancer from their body.

But there is still a small chance that breast cancer will return.

After remaining in remission for a year, the actress underwent reconstructive surgery in May to rebuild her breasts.

Despite the strenuous journey, Shannen remembers the experience with a positive spirit because of the way she could get away from the other side.

"I think he made me a better actor," Shannen told Robin. "I also think that it also made me a better human being."

Now it's about looking to the future for the actress as she continues to mark the five and 10 year milestones for remission while concentrating on her career.
