Actress Shannen Doherty has shaved her head in her ongoing cancer battle, documenting the results in a series of touching Instagram posts.
The first photo shows Doherty getting a hug before starting the dramatic haircut. As the process goes along, her attitude about the whole process seems to change and the 45-year-old actress starts smiling a little.
Last August, Doherty revealed her breast cancer diagnosis in a lawsuit against her former management team, claiming that a likely mastectomy and chemotherapy treatment potentially could have been avoided had her health insurance coverage been kept up-to-date.
The filing alleged that “in Nov. 2013, SAG sent the premium invoice to management firm Tanner Mainstain for Plaintiff’s medical insurance coverage for the year 2014. However, Defendants ignored it, failed to pay it (without informing Plaintiff) and then promptly terminated their relationship with [Doherty] effective Feb. 7, 2014.”
