Shannen Doherty hoping for '3-5 more years' of life amid cancer fight: 'Eventually there's going to be a cure'

Shannen Doherty is hoping to “squeeze out” another few years of life as she continues to battle cancer.

Doherty, 52, was “fairly certain” her breast cancer wouldn’t return, but now she’s holding out hope for a cancer cure after the disease spread to her brain and bones.

“You and I always talk about the fact that we just need to squeeze out another three to five years, and then there’s going to be T-cell therapy or there’s going to be this or there’s going to be that, whatever it is,” the former “90210” actress said on her podcast, “Let’s Be Clear,” while speaking with her oncologist, Dr. Lawrence Piro.

Doherty said there will eventually be a cure.
