First day of radiation treatment. I look like I'm about to make a run for it which is accurate. Radiation is frightening to me. Something about not being able to see the laser, see the treatment and having this machine moving around you just scares me. I'm sure I'll get used to it but right now.... I hate it. #radiation #radiationmondaysucks #stillfightinglikeagirl
“She’s really reaching out to people who are going through the same thing as her and helping a lot of people. I think she’s doing a great job.” Garth also talked about Doherty’s bravery and how she shares updates with her fans on social media.
“It’s interesting because Instagram usually ends up being about all the beautiful and best parts of my day or life or how I look the best,” Garth reveals. “She’s willing and brave enough to put herself out there, going through this horrendous experience with such dignity and grace. I think that gives a lot of people the hope and faith that they can do it too.”
The star recently took to Instagram to share a video of herself dancing in the midst of her trying time saying, "Sometimes it's not graceful but it's always healing both physically and mentally. It's so easy to get depressed in the battle against cancer but everyday I wake up and remind myself to be happy to be alive, relatively healthy and able to move. I'm so thankful for this life I have."
To combat my grumpiness and fatigue from #radiation , I #MOVE. Sometimes it's not graceful but it's always healing both physically and mentally. It's so easy to get depressed in the battle against cancer but everyday I wake up and remind myself to be happy to be alive, relatively healthy and able to move. I'm so thankful for this life I have. Thank you #Neda @jammalibu for working with me and making me leave for my day with a smile. #cancerslayer
Doherty was diagnosed with breast cancer back in 2015 and had a single mastectomy in May of that year as well. Later that year she released that her cancer had spread and would be starting chemotherapy treatments.
