The American actress is dealing with a major health battle. She recently opened up she is fighting the fourth stage of cancer. At the time, she stated:

“It’s going to come out in a matter of days or a week that I have stage 4. So my cancer came back and that’s why I’m here.”

In 2017, she revealed that she is dealing with breast cancer which was initially diagnosed in 2015. The actress posted her picture on the hospital bed with the heartbreaking caption:

“Ct scan to do mapping for radiation plan. This scared me so much. Not sure why. Was supposed to get it with contrast but the minute they started looking at which vein to use I started crying. Full panic attack. Sometimes, you just get sick of being poked. And that’s ok. I cried. I felt sorry for myself for a minute.

Then stopped and reminded myself of how lucky I am. Thank God my new radiation oncologist decided to try without contrast so I would calm down. So…. one panic attack down and mapping done!! Now to actually start radiation”

The actress is dealing with cancer silently and still managing to work. She was fighting cancer during the mourning of the death of her former “90210” costar Luke Perry in 2019. At the time, she also stated it is weird for her who is dealing with cancer to see go first who was healthy.
