Doherty, whose good looks landed her on 90210 as well as Charmed and the movies Heathers and Mall Rats, also expressed worry over her changing face. 'I don't know if I'll ever look like me again,' she said. 'I want to believe that if I fight, I'm gonna be OK.'  On Tuesday she bravely decided to let her 252,000 Instagram followers be a part of her journey on as she documented the shaving of her head. Sharing six candid images on her account, the actress was seen initially breaking down in tears before showing off her freshly shorn locks with a smile on her face.  During the emotional process, the star was surrounded by friends, who posed for selfies with the star and helped her with the razor. Earlier, the star hinted she would be making a bold change as she took to the picture sharing site to post a snap of a bizarre assortment of goodies.   'Cupcake pan, chocolates and a razor.... Stay tuned. @annemkortright has got this. #cancersucks #thankgodforfriends,' she wrote.  Earlier this year, the actress gave an update on her health while on The Dr Oz Show. The Heathers star explained that she can no longer have children because of the treatment she is undergoing.  She also said that she will have to undergo surgery soon. 'I'm 44 and my husband and I wanted children,' the Charmed star said during her appearance in February. She is currently on medicine that prevents her from getting pregnant.  The brunette also said that the mass is still in her breast and she has not had surgery yet.  Her oncologist wanted Shannen to undergo drug treatment and chemotherapy first to see if it would shrink the tumor. She told Dr Oz she has not decided what type of surgery she will get. 'It’s between two of them and at the end of the day it will be up to my doctor and it could change the last minute,' the actress said.

He has said the diagnosis made their marriage stronger. 'For us, it has brought us closer together. It's one of those times you get to test your mettle as a married couple,' said Being diagnosed with cancer has caused the Playboy cover girl to take better care of her body. 'I am continuing to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life,' she said. 'I am thankful to my family, friends and doctors for their support and, of course, my fans who have stood by me.' Family is what first came to mind when she received her cancer news.  'You worry most about the people that you love and making sure that they are going to be okay. For me, that was the hardest part,' she told Dr. Oz.

The lapse in payment meant Doherty didn't visit her doctor even though she felt a lump in her breast. The former Dancing With The Stars contestant has since urged women to get their health checked.  'You have no idea what that extra time might have afforded you,' she said. 'Mine for instance spread to a lymph node or two. It might not have spread ... The most important thing is catching it as early as humanly possible.'
