"Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment," Doherty wrote. "What does remission mean? I heard that word and have no idea how to react. Good news? YES. Overwhelming. YES."
"Now more waiting. As every single one of my fellow cancer family knows, the next five years is crucial. Reoccurrences happen all the time. Many of you have shared that very story with me," she continued. "So with a heart that is certainly lighter, I wait."
"In the meantime, decisions. Reconstruction which is several surgeries. Decision on taking a pill for the next five years that comes with its own set of problems and side effects. I am blessed, I know that. But for now.... remission," Doherty concluded. "I'm going to just breathe. #cancerslayer."
