CANCER REMISSION

As reported by Survivornet, Doherty, who is also a producer and television director, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. It went into remission after treatment.

In May 2018, Daily Mail reported that Doherty was seen with her beloved mother Rosa grocery shopping in Malibu. This outing came only days before the actress went to the doctor.

In September, Doherty said she is not ready to be put "out to pasture" in an interview.

Doherty took a trip to the doctor to bank blood for surgery at the time. Earlier this year, the actress shocked her legion of fans when she publicly announced that her breast cancer had returned.

Currently, the "Our House" star is battling metastatic breast cancer. According to Survivornet, it means that Doherty's cancer has spread to other parts of her body.
