In February, the 49-year-old Charmed star revealed that she had grade IV breast cancer that returned after remission.
Doherty is determined to fight the disease, but thoughts of a sad outcome do not leave her. In a recent interview with Elle, Shannen revealed that she plans to prepare letters for her loved ones to read after her death.
I haven’t sat down to write them yet. But this must be done. There are things I want to tell my mom. And I want my husband to know what he means to me,
– Shannen shared and added that she also plans to record a video for loved ones.
When I think that I have to take it and do it, I feel that this is the end. It seems that everything, I am leaving, but I am not leaving. I feel very, very healthy. It’s hard to prepare for the end when you feel like you’ll live another 10 or 15 years
– said the actress.
Choosing to fight for life, Shannen enjoys simple things during quarantine.
I try to appreciate the simple little things that people usually don’t notice or take for granted. Everything ordinary becomes important to me. There is a bottomless well inside us, you just have to keep digging deeper in order to find the strength to withstand adversity and see the beauty of life,
– summed up the actress.
