Shannen Doherty's Message To Her Husband Will Tug At Your Heart

Shannen Doherty has been using her Instagram feed to share her struggles and triumphs as she continues her battle with cancer.

Lately, she's been the queen of heartwarming Instagram posts showing appreciation for the support she's received from loved ones. Doherty has thanked her mother, her friends, and her doctors who have all been there for her during her very public struggles with the disease.

The latest recipient of an emotional message from the actress is her husband, filmmaker Kurt Iswarienko. Inspired by a post from her close friend Sarah Michelle Gellar, Doherty decided to participate in the #loveyourspousechallenge. She chose to share a picture of her and her husband on their wedding day from 2011.
Doherty wrote a sweet message to accompany the memory.

"My friend @sarahmgellar softly suggested a challenge to @kurtiswarienko and myself to do the 7 day #loveyourspousechallenge and we accepted! She was telling me about going thru old photos and the memories and emotions they evoke. This morning, I felt that and I'm thankful Sarah challenged us.

"Our wedding was exceptional and not for the big event it was. It was exceptional because we committed for better or worse, in sickness or in health to love and cherish one another. Those vows have never meant more than they do now. Kurt has stood by my side thru sickness and makes me feel more loved now than ever. I would walk any path with this man. Take any bullet for him and slay every dragon to protect him. He is my soul mate. My other half. I am blessed."
