Shannen Doherty has shared a photo of her husband looking after her as she goes through chemotherapy.

The former Beverly Hills 90210 star is battling breast cancer and has been documenting her fight on Instagram.

Her latest black-and-white snap shows hubby Kurt Iswarienko kissing her forehead as she lays back in a chair for treatment.

She wrote: “There are many faces to cancer. This is one of them. Chemo Day With @kurtiswarienko by my side. August 10, 2016.”

Another picture details the process further.

Shannen said: “The many faces of cancer. Chemo Day. What we call the Red Devil being injected into me via the port thats in my chest. Dawn is my nurse who takes excellent care of me August 10, 2016 #cancersucks #fightlikeagirl.”

The star, 45, revealed that she was fighting breast cancer in August last year, after being diagnosed in March.

In recent weeks she has shared images of herself shaving her head, and being comforted by her mother.
