Since opening up to fans and the world about her battle with breast cancer, former Beverly Hills 90210 and Charmed star Shannen Doherty has received an outpouring of support.

Now, her longtime friend and fellow ’90s star Sarah Michelle Gellar is sharing her support for Doherty. On Monday, August 8, Gellar posted a touching Instagram photo and caption in honor of #MondayMuse dedicated to Doherty. Alongside a picture of the two friends, Gellar wrote, “My #MondayMuse (and really every day #Muse) is my brave friend @theshando. I’ve always said she is one of the most loyal friends I’ve ever known, and now while she is facing the toughest journey of her life, she is sharing it with friends she has never met in the hopes of helping other people who are going through the same struggle.” She then added, “That’s a true friend.”

In the past month, Doherty has opened up more than ever about her courageous battle and documented shaving her head after receiving chemotherapy treatment, and has also posted pictures thanking her family and friends for helping through this tough time.

She has also been flooded with support from fans and social media users which send constant messages of prayers and well wishes using hashtags such as #CancerSucks and #ShandoArmy.
