Last year in October (2021), Shannen started posting her journey with breast cancer on her Instagram page. This wasn’t something she had done before. At least, not in detail. “Even though her cancer journey had started in 2015, back then, her breast cancer went into remission, only for it to return in 2020 as stage four breast cancer. So, in honor of breast cancer awareness month, she decided to share her personal journey. With all the not-so-pretty aspects included. “For breast cancer awareness month, I’d like to share more of my own personal journey from my first diagnosis to my second,” she wrote, in part. “Is it all pretty? NO but it’s truthful and my hope in sharing is that we all become more educated, more familiar with what cancer looks like.”
