For months now, actress Shannen Doherty has been sharing the intimate details of her battle with breast cancer on her social media profiles.
Throughout her difficult ordeal, the 45-year-old former star of 90210, Beverly Hills and Charmed has been surrounded by her loved ones.
And one person who has been by her side non-stop is her mother, who Doherty affectionately named ‘Mama Rosa’ in a new Instagram tribute.
The beautiful black-and-white photo captures a tender mother-daughter moment, with Rosa cheekily poking Doherty’s cheek as she lays in her lap.
The photo reveals a touching truth: once you are a mum, you are always a mum. Even when your child is 45.
“Sometimes there’s nothing like a mothers love to help get you thru (sic),” Doherty wrote, in a nod to her adoring mum.
