The Beverly Hills, 90210 star is having a blast with her husband on their romantic holiday.

Shannen Doherty has put her breast cancer woes to the side as she celebrates her fifth marriage anniversary to Kurt Iswarienko in Mexico.

The Beverly Hills, 90210 star was diagnosed with the disease in March (15) and has been undergoing chemotherapy treatments in a bid to restore her health, but she is currently taking a break from all the hospital visits to spend time with her man on a romantic holiday south of the border.

"5 years ago today I made one of the best decisions of my life. I said 'I do' and married my best friend and soul mate @kurtiswarienko," she wrote on Saturday (15Oct16) in an Instagram caption attached to a picture of herself and Kurt standing in a field while petting a zebra together.

Shannen continued: "Life has thrown us some huge curves and we have faced them together with strength, love, passion and a desire to stand next to one another thru it all. I have learned what partnership truly is with this man. Yes we love to travel and have adventures together like today... hanging out with Vicky the zebra but everyday is an adventure with Kurt regardless of where we are and what we are doing. #thisistruelove #anniversary #mexico".

Doherty's cancer battle has only intensified recently, as earlier this year she learned the disease had spread to her lymphatic system.

However, the sites and sounds of Mexico City have sufficiently taken her mind off concerns surrounding her health, with the 45-year-old star praising the city on Friday (14Oct16), writing in another Instagram caption: "Mexico City. What an amazing place. I've been to many spots in #mexico but never here. The food scene is on fire here, history, charm.... it's got it all including childhood memories for @kurtiswarienko who lived here when he was a kid."
