Shannen Doherty preparing for death amid Stage 4 cancer diagnosis

Shannen Doherty announced her stage four cancer diagnosis in 2020

Shannen Doherty has admitted she's preparing for the possibility of her passing after she was diagnosed with an aggressive stage four cancer.

The Beverley Hills star heartbreaking cancer story began in 2015 as she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

But after treatment, two years later, she revealed she had gone into remission.

Doherty has spoken honestly about her ongoing cancer journey for years now, after revealing she had been diagnosed with stage four cancer back in 2020.

She also explained how the cancer had metastasized to her brain, and even spread to her bones.

Now, the 52-year-old has got candid about cleaning out her storage units and homes.

Shannen Doherty is preparing for death.

Speaking during Monday's (1 April) episode of the Let's Be Clear podcast, she said: "I'm a fighter and I believe in science and I think that something will come along that will keep on prolonging my life."

Nevertheless, she said she was sorting out her affairs 'just in case' to make it an 'easier transition' for her mom Rosa if she dies.

Doherty said: "My priority at the moment is my mom. I know it’s going to be hard on her if I pass away before her.

"Because it’s going to be so hard on her, I want other things to be a lot easier. I don’t want her to have a bunch of stuff to deal with. I don’t want her to have four storage units filled with furniture."

The 90210 star went on to explain that she's started to go through her belongings and donate and sell some of her antiques and other items.

She recently made a trip to her Tennessee home to pack up her belongings.

“So we were in Tennessee and I was packing up one of the places there,” she continued.

"It was really hard and really emotional because to a certain extent — I felt like I was giving up on this dream of building this property out, and putting a house for me and a house for my mom and then extending the barn."

The actor is selling a lot of her stuff 'just in case'.

At the Tennessee home, Doherty had planned to build a sanctuary for horses who were 'abandoned by their owners'.

“That was one of my dreams,” she said on the podcast while tearing up.

"I was packing up and I started crying … I felt like I was giving up on a dream and what did that mean for me? Did it mean that I was giving up on life? Did it mean that I was throwing in the towel?

“And my mom was there and she was like, ‘Don’t get rid of this place, it’s fine. You don’t have to and you can keep going.’ I said, ‘Yeah, absolutely I can.'

"A week and a half later, I went back to throw it all in a u-haul and have my friend drive it back to California.

"Sometimes even though it feels like you're giving up on something that was very special and important to you, you know that it is the right thing to do and it's going to give you a sense of peace and calm."
