Shannen Doherty shared some inspirational words about her fight with breast cancer in a Saturday night Instagram post.

“After a year of dealing with cancer coming back and other stresses, I’m back at it,” the “90210” actress wrote. “Taking care of myself and embracing every day. It’s not always easy. I have days I’m depressed or just plain lazy.”

Doherty credited her friends, particularly actress Anne Marie Kortright, with helping her to push through in fighting the disease.

Earlier this month, Doherty revealed that her breast cancer had returned. She said disease had came back a year earlier, but she had elected not share the news.

Doherty was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, and chronicled her fight as an inspiration to others. In 2017, she reported the cancer was in remission, but it evidently returned last year.
