Hollywood actress Shannen Doherty has thanked her mother for helping her cope as she battles breast cancer.
The former Beverly Hills 90210 star shared a touching image on Instagram of herself with her head in her mother Rosa's lap.
She wrote: "Sometimes there's nothing like a mother's love to help get you thru.
"Thank you mom for always being there and being so strong for me. I love you."
The 45-year-old actress revealed that she was fighting breast cancer in August last year, after being diagnosed in March.
She has been documenting her fight on social media, recently sharing a set of images of herself shaving her head.
In another recent post, Doherty opened up about going through chemotherapy.
"Chemo day. A day many of us dread," she said.
"Strength gets us thru but every once in awhile, you just want to hide in bed and let chemo day pass you by."
