Shannen Doherty says her cancer has spread. Shannen ’ s 90210 co-star, Jason Priestly, extended his well-wishes during a charity event in California. “What she did the other day, shaving her head and posting the pictures and everything, that was incredibly brave,” he said .

“I don’t think you’re ever on the other side [of cancer],” Doherty, 47, tells PEOPLE. “I don’t think about the fact that I’m in remission. I look at it like I’m lucky to be alive every minute, every second of the day.”

Diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2015, Doherty initially underwent hormone therapy before ultimately undergoing a mastectomy, followed by brutal back-to-back rounds of chemo and radiation.

“I really took good care of myself, and I came out of it in as good of condition I think somebody [in my situation] could be in,” says Doherty. “But the funny thing with cancer is that once you’re no longer on chemo or radiation, people think you’re fine, that you bounce back. But what they don’t realize is that your body has been through something so incredibly difficult that your body never fully bounces back.”

Long days filming on the set of BH90210 “has taken a toll,” Doherty admits. “I’m exhausted. And I’m really terrible with self-care. When I‘m at work, I have a tunnel vision mentality.”
