Doherty, 45, was has been battling breast cancer since in February 2015, but made her diagnosis public in August 2015.
“I think what’s beautiful and hard and interesting about cancer is that it tears you down and builds you, and tears you down and builds you,” the actress told Chelsea Handler during an interview late last month. “It remakes you so many different times. The person I thought I was supposed to be or was going to be or who I thought I was six months ago is now somebody completely different.”
A number of A-list friends have reached out in support of the actress since following the announcement of her diagnosis. Most notably, Sarah Michelle Gellar, who presented Doherty with an award on November 5.
“I’m feeling ridiculously lucky and very blessed,” Doherty told the Press Association that night. “Cancer has changed my life for the better. It’s made me a better human being. It stripped away all of the walls and the barriers.”
90210 alum Garth also posted a pic on social media to show her support for Doherty.
