Shannen Doherty is going through one of the biggest struggles of her life as she battles cancer but one thing she doesn't have to worry about is the amount of love her husband has for her.

Shannen Doherty's husband loves her more "every second".

The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star was diagnosed with breast cancer in February, 2015, and in May (16), she underwent a single mastectomy.

Doctors subsequently discovered the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes and she is currently undergoing chemotherapy, with plans to follow up the treatment with radiation.

Shannen recently made the decision to shave her head and has been sporting a pink bob wig. Sharing a snap wearing the wig as she sits alongside film producer spouse Kurt Iswarienko, Shannen wrote on her Instagram page: "He loves me with pink hair or no hair. I'm blessed to have such a strong support team starting with @kurtiswarienko who loves me more every second.

"Can't imagine my life without him. Cancer is not pleasant but it can bring out the best in relationships or the worse. Thankfully, it has made our marriage stronger. #f**kcancer."

In the picture, which was posted as part of the international "F**k cancer" campaign, both Shannen and Kurt have their middle fingers up, with Kurt playfully using his digit to poke his smiling wife on the nose.

Kurt had shared a similar snap earlier in the week, writing: "Cancer is like a book with so many pages you don't see a way to read through all of them at once. But when you take them one page at a time, a story emerges and takes shape in unexpected ways. The outcome isn't clear or easy to reckon with, but you find as you go through the journey that a clear outcome isn't the point. The journey is the thing. The people you connect with along the way are the point. It's about human energy. It's about breathing. #shannensquad #f**kcancer @theshando."
