Shannen Doherty it’s thinking about the future.

While the Beverly Hills, 90210 The star remains hopeful as she battles stage 4 cancer, she recently opened up about her decision to sell a property in Tennessee in order to “make things clean just in case.”

“I guess it was cancer, for me, that really made me take stock of my life and change my priorities,” Shannen said on the April 1 episode of her podcast. Let’s be clear. “And my priority right now is my mother. I know it’s going to be hard for her if I die before her.”

She continued, “Because it’s going to be really hard for her, I want other things to be a lot easier, which means I don’t want her to have a bunch of things to deal with.”

Shannen then described the “really moving” experience of cleaning up the scene.

“I was packing my bags and I started crying because, again, I felt like I was giving up on a dream and what did that mean to me?” THE Charm alum — who shared in 2020 that she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer after previously fighting a battle with breast cancer — continued in tears. “Did that mean I was giving up on life? Did that mean I was throwing in the towel?”
