Omg this is so sad. I really want there to be a way she beats this.

Bone mets are extremely painful. I hope her doctors are able to control her pain. One of my closest friends also had terminal breast cancer that spread to her bones. Her hip actually shattered while she walked to the bathroom. Dying sucks, but doing so in great pain sucks more.

When Shannen Doherty got cancer. Remember when Screech got cancer and died two weeks later? There was this huge outpouring of grief, even though the whole cast of Saved by the Bell supposedly hated him.

This is terrible news. I, for one, adore her, always have, always will. She's married to a guy, finally, who adores her, and has stood with her through the cancer, and will until the end.

I also hope they give her the good drugs. Her poor mom.

I have two cousins and a sister-in-law with Stage IV breast cancer. One had breast cancer 30 years ago but it metastasized in her spine about eight years ago. She had a tremendous amount of pain but with chemo she had been stable now for six years, more than they thought she'd have.

Her daughter also has metastasized breast cancer, in her brain and lungs and probably elsewhere. It was discovered too late for surgery but she had radiation and chemo and now has been on chemo every other week for over two years. She was given six weeks or less when diagnosed, but the treatment has restored her vision, her strength and her clarity of mind, and reduced her pain. After being bedfast she is now able to drive over three hours to visit her parents, spend a few days and drive back, and take care of herself at home.

The sister-in-law has had Stage IV breast cancer for over 35 years. She is on maintenance chemo, too, and has no symptoms that are getting in her way at 75. She's caring for a sick husband, babysitting grandchildren, and until recently was still working part time.

Every case is different, but it is true that amazing developments in treatment have occurred and some patients, for whom no hope would be expected, are living

I'm sorry for Shannen and hope she's able to feel comfortable and at peace, she's certainly loved and cared for.

Assisted death is available California, laws were passed in 2016.

I have a friend who began the application process for the drug but died before she got it. It can take a couple of weeks for approval, or did then. Just knowing she had the option gave her peace of mind.

Two ways to go: a doctor brings the drug to you and administers it or you take possession of the drug and take it when you're ready.

There is a fidelity to fellow humans that transcends everything else. Diseases are not punishment by anyone for anything. The worst that Shannen has been accused off is being selfish and inconsiderate professionally. That certainly doesn't translate into suffering with an agonizing terminal disease.

Hopefully Shannen is able to afford good medical care and pain management.

Stories like R20 and R36 give me hope that it doesn't necessarily have to be the end.

And like R27, I saw her recent Instagram posts a few days ago and noted that she seemed hale and hearty there. There was nothing that indicated to me that she was dying. So the article might not be that accurate, or I hope not anyway especially since it doesn't seem to be a reputable site.

And they want to ban the drugs required to make the end bearable. My greatest fear is not being able to stop the pain as I die of cancer.

There was an indie movie that came out a couple of years ago called Here Awhile which was about a terminally ill cancer patient moving to Oregon from California due the assisted suicide law. It was a decent movie that handled the subject matter quite well.

She's not going to go all the way with this. Once you're on a morphine drip, you can end it at anytime. Poor woman. My 80 year old aunt died screaming in pain from Ovarian cancer that spread to her brains and bones. And she was in agonizing pain for many, many months. She kept getting chemo and radiation and tried to hold on for her husband. Had ribs cut out and half of her abdomen removed. Why?

Don't do it. There is no reward for suffering.

My friend has stage 4 breast cancer. She was taking experimental chemo twice a week for the last year. She decided to stop because its side effects are brutal. Her 80 yr old mother has been caring for her and its been hard on her too. She's survived cancer going on 9 yrs now, but she says she's had enough. Heartbreaking.

I had a friend in Oregon who applied for and qualified for the assisted suicide program and then missed the window of opportunity and was deemed incompetent of making the decision herself because she had deteriorated mentally. It was such a bad, sad situation. She was a brilliant lawyer, so to be told at the end she wasn't competent to decide for herself was crushing to her husband. And her father (understandably) was so desperate not to lose his daughter that she went through one final round of an experimental treatment that her doctors were telling her and her husband was really not likely to help, but her father insisted and she agreed. So she ended up even sicker and more frail in her final days than she needed be. I and two friends visited her on her request and it was like talking to an elderly patient with dementia. When we were at the airport leaving, she called and asked if we were coming over again that night and I had to tell her, I'm so sorry, we're all the airport heading home, and she said "ok, we'll then I'll see you the next time you're here". She died four days later.

And her husband was FURIOUS with his father in law (who had moved in with them to be with his daughter during her final months). He blamed her father for her choosing to be treated a final time knowing that it wasn't going to work and only make her sicker and for missing the opportunity to end her life on her own terms. It was heartbreaking to see him (her husband) go through that. But I also had great sympathy for her dad. He loved her and obviously would do anything not to lose her, and he lost sight of the fact that she was suffering.

If Shannen is saying goodbye to friends, it's over. Don't be surprised if she dies in the next couple weeks.
