As Shannen Doherty's breast cancer battle continues, the actress took some time to thank her supportive mother on Instagram.

"Sometimes there's nothing like a mothers love to help get you thru," she wrote alongside a photo of the pair on Saturday. "Thank you mom for always being there and being so strong for me. I love you. #mamarosa #cancersucks #fightlikeagirl."

Doherty told PEOPLE magazine last August that she was "currently undergoing treatment" in her battle with the disease.

A year later, she shaved her head, sharing photos with fans.

In another post this week, Doherty was brutally honest about her treatment.

"Chemo day. A day many of us dread," she captioned a photo of herself under the covers. "Strength gets us thru but every once in awhile, you just want to hide in bed and let chemo day pass you by."

The actress, who played Brenda Walsh on Beverly Hills, 90210, has proven her resilience despite a tragic transformation.

Meanwhile, the Charmed star vowed to continue "to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life," and it's clear she's living up to her promises.
