My Story: Stars Who've Faced Breast Cancer

From Samantha Harris' silver lining to Rita Wilson urging women to learn from her experience, see the women who've shared their survivor stories


Age at diagnosis: 44
The 90210 and Charmed actress revealed to PEOPLE in August 2015 that she's battling breast cancer – and is currently undergoing treatment. Doherty's fight is slightly different than those of other stars, though: she's in the midst of legal proceedings related to her diagnosis, too. Her insurance lapsed due to unpaid premiums, so she is suing her business manager for failing to pay. Despite this, she's staying upbeat: "Yes, I have breast cancer, and I am currently undergoing treatment," the actress said in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. "I am continuing to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life. I am thankful to my family, friends and doctors for their support and, of course, my fans who have stood by me."
