Shannen Doherty explained in brief the trials of her fight with growth in an emotional meeting with Chelsea Handler.

“I think what’s beautiful and hard and interesting about cancer is that it tears you down and builds you, and tears you down and builds you. It remakes you so many different times,” Doherty told her friend during a new episode of “Chelsea.”

Handler shattered while the two are talking and Doherty advises her not to cry.

And then there is this lady…. @chelseahandler We met many many years ago. Have run into each other and always exchanged numbers, talked of plans etc. Chelsea reached out and has since, made a point to have date nights with me on a weekly basis. Yeah she’s funny but also wicked smart with a huge heart. This one just wants to make a difference. Sometimes the right people come into your life at the right time. #girlpower #fightlikeagirl
