Shannen Doherty’s ‘ultimate, ultimate dream’ for 2022 is for ‘progression’ in finding a cure for cancer.
The 50-year-old actress has stage four cancer and she’s determined to do whatever she can to raise awareness and push for better funding into research ways to fight the disease.
‘If I were dreaming of what would happen in 2022, I think lot more research and progression as far as finding the cure for cancer is my ultimate, ultimate dream,’ said the actress.
“Because even though I am thriving and I’m doing well, I still have cancer and you don’t want stage four. But I have it and so I think in the back of my mind, this constant sort of ‘OK, what can I do to help bring more awareness, what can I do the help raise money, what can I do to sort of push research for not just myself but for everybody else who is suffering from cancer?”‘
She added to Entertainment Tonight: “Realistically, I hope that my health just continues to be stable and that I continue the relationships with my husband and my mom and my friends and I hope their work continues to grow and it only gets better.”
“I just I hope that next year, work-wise continues. I hope I continue to get these opportunities and that I continue to work with people that I’ve always admired and wanted to work with.”
She also said: “Having cancer doesn’t mean you are not able to work”.
