Doherty captioned the post: “After a year of dealing with cancer coming back and other stresses, I’m back at it. Taking care of myself and embracing every day. It’s not always easy. I have days I’m depressed or just plain lazy. But I push thru with the help of friends. @annemkortright has been relentless in getting me to hike and learning new ways to cook that feed my soul as well as my tummy but in a very healthy way. She along with @cheforen @maliburadkitchen have made cooking healthy fun and sustainable. If that wasn’t enough... Annemarie brought in @kirastokesfit to kick my butt yesterday! It’s been a productive great week. I feel better. My skin is alive and so am I.”

As People reports, the “Beverly Hills 90210” star announced the stage four return of her breast cancer in February. Around that time, she also shared a post about coping with the news of her rediagnosis.

Doherty wrote: “I want to thank all of you for your love, prayers and support. It’s an odd time right now and I find my feet not completely underneath me. To say I have stress is an understatement. To say that I’m struggling is mild. But... I believe that I will find my footing. I’ll dig deep for the inner strength I need to face it all. I pray I do it all with dignity and grace. I have so much to say. So much to share. I will. For now... please know how much you all help lift me.”

As Fox News reports, the star was initially diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015 before entering remission in 2017. Following her remission, she underwent DIEP Flap surgery in 2018 to rebuild her breast following treatment.
