Former ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ and ‘Charmed’ star Shanned Doherty has posted a moving photo documenting her first day of radiation treatment, describing the experience as “frightening”.

The 45-year-old has regularly shared candid images and details about her breast cancer battle since being diagnosed last year, yesterday posted this photo from inside her doctor’s office.

In the snap, the actress is wearing a hospital gown and leaning forward in her chair.

First day of radiation treatment. I look like I’m about to make a run for it which is accurate. Radiation is frightening to me. Something about not being able to see the laser, see the treatment and having this machine moving around you just scares me. I’m sure I’ll get used to it but right now…. I hate it.

A few hours before, Doherty posted this photo taken with her husband Kurt Iswarienko with the simply sweet message: “I love my husband”

I love my husband. @kurtiswarienko

The star also posted this beautiful picture posing with her mother, explaining how cooking works as therapy for her to take her mind off her treatment.

“#radiationday with my mom. Came home and whipped her up some homemade tomato soup cause cooking relaxes me. I think she liked it…”
