Two much loved US actors have provided updates on their private health battles.
Former Beverly Hills 90210 AND Charmed star Shannen Doherty, who battled breast cancer, posted a video revealing that the cancer has sadly spread to his brain and he has been in treatment since January.
“My fear is obvious,” Doherty wrote on Instagram. “I am extremely claustrophobic and there was a lot going on in my life. I am lucky because I have excellent doctors like Dr Amin Mirahdi and the amazing technicians from Cedar Sinai. But that fear… The turmoil….. the timing of it all…. This is what cancer can look like.
Doherty was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, but went into remission in 2017 following a single mastectomy and chemotherapy in 2016. In 2020, she announced that her cancer had returned to stage 4.
Meanwhile ex Partridge family star Danny Bonaduce provided a health update following his successful brain surgery on Monday.
The 63-year-old tweeted in response to a TMZ article about his road to recovery.

Bonaduce’s wife, Amy Railsback, also updated fans by saying, “It’s been a long day, but I just wanted to let you know that Danny’s surgery went according to plan and is going well.”
Bonaduce revealed in April 2022 that he has a mysterious illness, which was later told Good morning America, “I couldn’t walk at all. (My wife) looked really nervous and she said, ‘You’re not saying words, you’re not speaking English’ which, of course, is absurd to me.
Three months ago, he was finally diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a neurological disorder “caused by an abnormal buildup of cerebrospinal fluid in the ventricles (cavities) deep within the brain…putting damaging pressure on brain tissue,” according to the National Institutes of Health.
