Doherty feels ‘great’ after finishing chemotherapy

Los Angeles, March 7 (IANS) Actress Shannen Doherty, who made her first public appearance since completing chemotherapy last week, says she is feeling great and is “super positive”.

The 45-year-old hosted the Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation’s first Gratitude Gala here on March 4 and spoke about how she’s doing now.

“I feel great. I mean, I feel good, I’m super positive, I’m happy with where I’m at right now,” Doherty told usmagazine.com.

“Cancer, for me, as hard as it is, has been a blessing. It has changed who I am as a human being forever. It’s altered my life in ways I can’t even speak of.”

Doherty, who went public with her breast cancer diagnosis in 2015, said fighting the battle of her life made her want to give back.

“To just infuse all of that positive energy that I have behind me from my cancer family out there that support me, and for everybody who is down with the ‘Cancer Slayer’ (as she calls herself), they’re now here,” she explained.

“I just feel so blessed and so lucky in my life.”
