This tweet is as real as she could get to be honest. The responses to her tweets make it obvious that other people experiencing cancer right now, as well as fans, are reaching out to her with encouraging words.

On Februrary 11, 2020, she took to Twitter again and said, 'I want to thank all of you for your love, prayers, and support. It's an odd time right now, and I find my feet not completely underneath me. To say I have stress is an understatement.'

This is definitely an overwhelming reality for Shannen. The posts on Instagram and Twitter are like a timeline for how she is processing the situation. Yes, her cancer is back, but she is determined to keep living her life.

Recently, Shannen told GMA, 'It's going to come out in a matter of days or a week that -- I'm stage four. So my cancer came back. And that's why I'm here.'

She went on to say, 'I don't think I've processed it. It's a bitter pill to swallow in a lot of ways.'

Shannen chose to do the reboot of 90210 to 'honor' Luke.

Speaking about the untimely death of Luke, she also said, 'It's so weird for me to be diagnosed and then somebody who was, you know, seemingly healthy to go first.'

When commenting on why she kept the diagnosis to herself, she said, 'One of the reasons, along with Luke -- that I did '90210' and didn't really tell anybody because I thought, people can look at that other people with stage four can work too. Like, you know, our life doesn't end the minute we get that diagnosis. We still have some living to do,' she said.
