The 45-year-old continued, “Reoccurrences happen all the time. Many of you have shared that very story with me. So with a heart that is certainly lighter, I wait.”

Doherty plans to undergo reconstruction surgeries but for now, the “cancer slayer” is feeling fortunate.

“I am blessed, I know that.  But for now… remissions. I’m going to just breathe.”
