Crohn’s Quote Shannen Doherty

Shannen Doherty Quote on Life with Crohn’s

The actress Shannen Doherty is incredibly outspoken. In her current battle with breast cancer, she is sharing details on social media and in media interviews. In the past, she was just as vocal about her life with IBD.  With this Crohn’s quote, Shannen Doherty gives us a glimpse of the not so glamorous side of acting when IBD starts acting up.


Chrons quote shannen doherty


Crohn’s disease is a lifelong illness that Doherty has dealt with since childhood. More than a decade ago she told Star Magazine, “There’s nothing sexy about women saying: ‘I’ve got to go to the bathroom right now.”

Our immune system is supposed to protect us from foreign bodies, pathogens, and consequent infections, but in IBD (Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis), the immune system mistakes the body’s own microbes, food, and other materials for foreign bodies and attacks the intestine. The attack leads to a release of white blood cells at the sites, which causes inflammation.

    Prayer for Shannen. Dealing with crohns is bad enough but now she is fighting for her life. My hope is that she beats the cancer. She is an inspiration to not only the crohns community but now for the cancer community. She is one of the strongest ladies in the public eyes in my opinion. You’ve got this girl, keep fighting the good fight and god bless you ♡
