The last time Doherty gave fans an update about her health status was in March when she shared a series of photos on Instagram. The post featured an image of herself with friends model Anne Marie Kortright and trainer Kira Stokes, alongside several healthy meals.

In the accompanying caption, the actress explained that while dealing with cancer, she has the help of her friends who encourage her to take care of herself and take things day by day. She credited them for helping her eat healthily and work out, pushing aside the depression she felt on some days.

Doherty was initially diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, but after two years of undergoing treatment, she announced in 2017 that she was in remission. Unfortunately, it returned in early 2020.

Nevertheless, the actress has remained positive through it all. She explained in an interview that she is candid about her health because she wants to help people who are going through something similar and give them hope.
