Shannen Doherty will be undergoing surgery following the happy news of her cancer remission.

This Tuesday, May 1, the actress took to Instagram to share a photo of herself with her doctor, telling fans: "My doctor had me bank some blood for my upcoming surgery. Mars P was patient with me and didn't even roll his eyes at my anxiety over the needle size. He was patient, kind and really good."

While the 47-year-old beauty did not explain what the procedure was for, she did take time to thanks blood donors everywhere for giving patients like her a second chance at life.

"As I sat there banking blood for myself, I asked him about some of the people also donating... especially the ones with TVs. So two of them come every 2 weeks and donate platelets which takes 2 hours. Another girl comes as often as allowed to donate blood," wrote Doherty.

"To say I'm moved by the generosity of people is an understatement. I'm vowing that as long as I'm cleared in the future, I will start donating. Thank you to those selfless humans that donate. Thank you to Mars and all at the clinic in Woodland Hills for your smiles and hard work. Thank you to the @americanredcross #humbledagain," she added.

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Doherty told fans that her breast cancer had gone on remission after countless hours of treatment. Early this April, however, she admitted that one of her tumor tests had come back "elevated" and would require further assistance.

While her battle is not yet over, Shannen Doherty assured fans she is "staying positive" and will make it through.
