SHANNEN DOHERTY IS HONORED AT AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY TALKS ABOUT COURAGE

Shannen Doherty has been so brave in fighting her battle with cancer this past year and a half.  Shannen was honored at the 2016  American Cancer Society.  Shannen gave a very powerful moving speech about the courage it takes to fight the disease and how she looks at the positive side of it.  Here is what Shannen had to say:

“I’m feeling ridiculously lucky and very blessed. 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.
“It exposes any lie in your life whatsoever. It exposes who’s not really truly there for you and who really is there for you. It’s this brilliant thing where you just look around and think, ‘Oh my God, this person is amazing, they’re showing up for me in a way I never expected’.”
“For the last year and a half, cancer has been my teacher. It’s taught me what love, strength, friendship and support truly looks like,”  “It’s opened my eyes to myself and it’s allowed me to not only share my journey with people but it’s actually allowed me to share my inner self with anybody who actually wanted to know what it was like… And the end result is that I am nothing but vulnerability and, to me, vulnerability is courage.”
“Courage isn’t something that comes to you immediately. It’s not something that you have fully. Courage is something that you gain and it grows. Courage is facing every day and every obstacle one step at a time. Courage is knowing that fear is not going to find a solution; it’s not going to help you find a cure. Courage is embracing what you’re going through and trying to get through it with as much dignity as you possibly can, while also accepting your circumstances and allowing yourself to feel everything.”
I’m accepting this award for all the fathers out there who have taught your children to have courage, and I also accept it on behalf of every single cancer patient out there and all their caregivers.
