Shannen Doherty Shares Plan for Cancer Fight and How Much Time She Hopes She Has Left

update: Shannen is revealing how much time she hopes she has left.

While talking to oncologist Dr. Lawrence Piro on her Podcast, Doherty shared that she and her team of doctors have a plan. A plan that will hopefully get her to the next big discovery in cancer research.

“I always talk about the fact that we just need to squeeze out another three to five years, and then there’s going to be T-cell therapy or there’s going to be this. “There’s going to be a lot more options that will give another five years. Then in those five years, there’s a whole other group of options, and eventually there’s going to be a cure.”

Dr. Piro agreed with Doherty’s plan. He too said most oncologist looks at every patient differently but with the same goal in mind. “I always say that it’s important to think of each therapy as a horse, and in a horse race, you want to ride every horse as long as it rides, and then you ride the next horse as much as possible. […] You hope you make it a few laps then there’s altogether another new set of horses to ride, to make the race that much longer.”

On Tuesday (Dec. 5), Shannen Doherty celebrated the launch of her new podcast – Let’s Be Clear with Shannen Doherty – and she did not disappoint. The 52-year-old shared a lot about her eight-year battle with breast cancer, but there’s one story about her ex-husband (Kurt Iswarienko) that’ll break your heart.

Doherty and Iswarienko (a famed photographer) started dating in 2008 and tied the knot in October 2011. They were married for 11 years, but it came screeching to a halt in April 2023 when she filed for divorce – citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason. Doherty later alleged that he had an affair with his agent.

During the first episode of her new podcast, Doherty elaborated on the moment she found out about the affair – that moment came just hours before undergoing brain surgery to remove a tumor (the cancer had spread to the brain). She talked about the pain and confusion she was forced to feel at the wrong time.
