Someone tell Jim and Cindy Walsh to bring some decorations down to Nat at the Peach Pit. A celebration is in order! Shannen Doherty says that she beat the shit out of cancer. You don’t eff with Brenda Walsh.
Shannen posted on her Instagram that she found out that her breast cancer is in remission. I think Shannen just imagined her cancer as a combination of Kelly Taylor, Emily Valentine, and that Valerie Malone chick (who thought she could replace Brenda) and just mentally slapped that amalgam over and over. Surely that helped her vanquish her illness.
“Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment. What does remission mean? I heard that word and have no idea how to react. Good news? YES. Overwhelming. YES. Now more waiting.”
Shannen went on to explain that finding out you’re in remission is in no way the end of the battle. She really won’t be out of the woods, so to speak, for five years because reoccurrences can happen. She also has to meet with surgeons about getting multiple reconstruction surgeries. And there’s meds.
Decision on taking a pill for the next five years that comes with its own set of problems and side effects. I am blessed, I know that. But for now…. remission. I’m going to just breathe. #cancerslayer
Wouldn’t we all like to punch cancer in the face like it was a Nazi? Hopefully this means that Shannen will definitely be reprising her Heather Duke character for the Heathers reboot. She can now take over that shitshow and make it the one-Heather tour de force that it can and should be!
