Breast cancer is a malignant disease characterized by the out-of-control growth of breast cells. The breast is composed of fatty tissue, fibrous tissue, and glandular tissue, which comprises three parts – the glands that produce milk, the ducts that transport milk to the nipple, and the connective tissue that consists of fibrous and fatty tissue that connects everything together.
Unfortunately, everyone is at risk of developing this devastating disease, even celebrities, as is the case of actress Shannen Doherty. The Hollywood sweetheart and star of the Beverly Hills: 90218 TV series is fighting breast cancer and decided to shave her head, sharing every step of the way on social media.
After making the extremely difficult decision of shaving her head, Shannen kept up with her breast cancer treatments and with her public awareness for the disease. In this interview, shared by Entertainment Tonight on the first of August, you can watch the actress talk about her life at the moment, how she decided to shave her hair off and document it so everybody could see why she did it and the impact of it on her life.
