Shannon Doherty was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2015 and has been fighting it since. According to reports, Doherty was alone with a stranger, a woman, in an elevator after receiving her radiation treatment. As they were riding the elevator, the strange woman asked Doherty how she was feeling. Doherty told her she was “very tired” because she just got done getting her radiation treatment. The woman “lunged” away from Doherty and got as far away from her as she could and looked HORRIFIED during the next three floors on the elevator ride. It was as if she was afraid she was going to get cancer too just by being near Doherty.
Shannon has a message for everyone. “Just a heads up…..1.you can’t catch it. 2. The radiation won’t leak out of me and go into you. Hope that helps!”
Doherty has been fighting the breast cancer since 2015 and has opened up about the fight she has been going through with it. She even told ET that the cancer has spread to her lymph nodes.
Doherty had this to say:
“The unknown has always been the scariest part. Is the chemo going to work? Is the radiation going to work? You know, am I going to have to go through this again, or am I going to get secondary cancer? Everything else is manageable. Pain is manageable, you know, living without a breast is manageable. It’s the worry of your future and how your future is going to affect the people that you love.”
Shannon Doherty is a strong woman. The message is, cancer, no matter what type it is, is not contagious. Radiation does not come out of one person and go into another. That woman’s reaction was WRONG and DISRESPECTFUL!
