Doherty’s cancer was publicly revealed in a lawsuit filed against her former business managers last year. She claimed they mismanaged her money and allowed her health insurance to lapse. She said she didn’t go to the doctor until she had insurance and there was a delay in diagnosing the cancer.

The 45-year-old Doherty is best known for her role as Brenda Walsh on “Beverly Hills, 90210.”
