Shannen Doherty Battling Breast Cancer

By  | 

Shannen Doherty has revealed that she has breast cancer and she is currently undergoing therapy. She was forced to reveal this news since she has filed a lawsuit against her business management and accounting company Tanner Mainstain Glynn & Johnson.

Doherty was diagnosed with cancer in March this year, but according to her, she could have discovered it much earlier if it hadn’t been for the mismanagement of her finances by her accountants.

Namely, she had to go all last year without health insurance because the company and her, now, former accountants let her insurance lapse. Doherty’s condition has worsened a lot since last year when she couldn’t visit the doctor and due to the delay of the diagnosis, she will now have to undergo severe treatment, including chemotherapy and maybe even a mastectomy.

All of this could have been avoided had she gone to the doctor earlier.

Normally, Doherty is enraged by the circumstances and she is suing the accounting company.


The actress’ attorney claims that a business relationship should be built on trust which was breached on this occasion and it led to dramatic consequences. The lawsuit, however, doesn’t state how much money Doherty is seeking. But it does state that the actress can’t work due to her diagnosis and the whole situation is causing her great emotional distress.

Tanner Mainstain Glynn & Johnson business management firm have released a statement wishing Doherty best of luck with fighting the disease but they continued saying that “the claim that Tanner Mainstain caused her to be uninsured, and prevented her from seeking medical care, or somehow contributed to her cancer is patently false.” They intend to defend themselves against all Doherty’s claims. Meanwhile, her attorney hopes they would “correct it in a responsible manner.” We have yet to see how the situation will resolve.

In the meantime, the 90210 actress says she is trying to stay positive, eat healthy and exercise. And she wishes to thank all her fans for their support.

We wish her a complete recovery and we hope she returns to the TV screens in no time.
