One such step is getting reconstructive surgery on her breast after undergoing a single mastectomy last spring. The 45-year-old Beverly Hills, 90210 alum took to Instagram on Thursday to share a video from her doctor's office, where she thanked her surgeon, Dr. Jay Orringer, and wrote, " I consider myself very lucky and very blessed to have this man as my doctor."
Earlier this month, the actress was honored with a Courage Award at the American Cancer Society's inaugural Giants of Science Gala, where she told ET that she was accepting the award with others in mind.
"I don't view it as me accepting the Courage Award for myself," Doherty explained. "I'm accepting the Courage Award on behalf of every single cancer patient out there because it takes a lot of courage." Check out the video below to hear more.
