“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 captioned a touching shot of her with her head in her hands.

“As every single one of my fellow cancer family knows, the next five years is crucial. Reoccurrences happen all the time. Many of you have shared that very story with me. So with a heart that is certainly lighter, I wait.”

The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star added that she still has some difficult choices to make about her future treatment.

“In the meantime, decisions. Reconstruction which is several surgeries. 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,” she stated.

Doherty was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2015, and by the following year it had spread to her lymphatic system.

She recently shared a video of her shaving her head before she started her grueling chemotherapy sessions last year.

“This day….. laughing thru (sic) the tears. Thank you @annemkortright for jumping in and doing what needed to be done. @themamarosa,” she captioned the emotional footage from July 2016, which shows her giggling as her pal Anne Marie Kortright buzzes away at her dark locks.
