Despite the gravity of her situation, Shannan has retained her dry wit and dark humor, evidenced by naming a brain tumor ‘Bob’ after its removal earlier this year. Her journey underscores not only the physical battles but the emotional fortitude required to face the unknown filled with hope.
It is a hope that extends beyond a mere wish for physical healing. A hope anchored in the belief of a greater plan. God's plan and purpose, woven into the fabric of her existence. This hope sustains her through the darkest moments, providing a reservoir of resilience that enables her to face each day with courage and determination.
"I know it sounds cheesy and crazy, but you're just more aware of everything, and you feel so blessed. We're the people who want to work the most because we're just so grateful for every second, every hour, every day we get to be here," she said.
Keeping Hope Alive
Shannen Doherty’s faith has become a powerful force that intertwines with her cancer journey. That faith infuses her with hope, purpose, and a deeper relationship with God. As she confronts the trials of cancer, her unwavering belief in God becomes a testament to the transformative power of faith in the face of adversity.
Each day, she wakes up with gratitude and turns to her ultimate healer, Jesus. “My greatest memory is yet to come,” she says. “I pray. I wake up and go to bed, thanking God. Praying for the things that matter to me without asking for too much. My faith is my mantra," she said.
Shannen, we are praying for you as you continue to battle cancer. We pray God continues to be your strength, your comfort, and a wellspring of hope with the purpose and plans He has for you. We admire your ability to continue to have hope and faith in one of life's most devastating health battles.
"In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith-more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire-may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ," 1 Peter 6-7.
