I want to thank all of you for your love, prayers and support,” she wrote. “It’s an odd time right now and I find my feet not completely underneath me. To say I have stress is an understatement. To say that I’m struggling is mild. But… I believe that I will find my footing. I’ll dig deep for the inner strength I need to face it all. I pray I do it all with dignity and grace. I have so much to say. So much to share. I will. For now… please know how much you all help lift me.”

Shannen shared the news that she had breast cancer in 2015. After a two year battle, the “90210” actress went into remission in 2017. However, earlier this month, the 48-year-old went on Good Morning America to reveal that the cancer had returned and it is Stage 4.

“I don’t think I’ve processed it,” she admits. “It’s a bitter pill to swallow in a lot of ways. I definitely have days where I say, ‘Why me?’ And then I go, well, ‘Why not me? Who else? Who else besides me deserves this?’ None of us do.”
