Shannen Doherty has stage 4 cancer

Shannen Doherty announced this morning on Good Morning America that she has been diagnosed with terminal stage 4 cancer, five years after being diagnosed with breast cancer. She says "I don't think I've processed it. It's a bitter pill to swallow in a lot of ways." She admitted she was "petrified" and worried about her husband and mother.

She found out about the diagnosis shortly after Luke Perry's death. Although she kept quiet, she did tell Brian Austin Green, whom she called a great deal of support.

The reason is has gone public is because she wanted to be able to control the narrative and not have the news come out in court papers. She is currently in a legal battle with State Farm Insurance over unpaid house damage claims.

Regarding her new diagnosis, Shannen said "I think the thing I want to do the most right now is I want to make an impact. I want to be remembered for something bigger than just me."
