The actress feels “blessed” for the support of her husband Kurt Iswarienko.
Shannen Doherty has opened up about her cancer battle and the effect it’s had on her marriage. The former ‘90210’ actress said her diagnosis has made her relationship with husband Kurt Iswarienko stronger, as she praised him for his support and love.
On Instagram Doherty posted a pic of herself and Iswarienko smiling together while giving the middle finger as part of the "F**k Cancer" campaign. "He loves me with pink hair or no hair," Doherty wrote.
”I'm blessed to have such a strong support team starting with @kurtiswarienko who loves me more every second. Can't imagine my life without him. Cancer is not pleasant but it can bring out the best in relationships or the worse. Thankfully, it has made our marriage stronger.”
Earlier this week Doherty sat down with ‘Entertainment Tonight’ where she also spoke about how her husband of five years was supporting her. "My marriage was always strong, but it's made my marriage a thousand times stronger," she said. "He's never missed a chemo. He's never missed a sick day.”
Describing how she told her husband the news of her diagnosis, Doherty added: “He hugged me and said, 'We are going to get through this. You are going to be OK. We are going to get through this, you're strong and you're powerful and you're not going anywhere. You have so much to do in your life. We are going to get through it as a family.'"
