Shannen Doherty Wants to Prove that People with Cancer Are Employable

Shannen Doherty’s cancer came back in 2019, and it’s now metastatic stage 4 breast cancer.  It’s incurable.  But that hasn’t stopped her from working, and she hopes she can inspire others.

She says, “The best example that I can continue to set for other people with cancer, and to the outside world who doesn’t have cancer, is to show them what a cancer patient looks like.  We are employable.  So for me, I’m just trying to live the best I can, to be the best example at this moment.”

She adds, “Stage 4 cancer, it doesn’t mean the end of your life.  It doesn’t mean that you’re not viable in the workplace.  It’s quite the opposite.”

Shannen filmed three movies back-to-back this year.  Two of them are Lifetime movies that’ll air next weekend, and the third is a Bruce Willis action flick called “The Fortress”.  It’s hitting theaters next year.  She’s also looking for projects to DIRECT.
