(CNN) —  

Shannen Doherty documented shaving her head as she battles breast cancer.

The actress went public with her diagnosis last August when she filed a lawsuit against her former business manager. In the claim, the “Charmed” and “90210” star accused her manager of not paying health insurance premiums, causing coverage for the actress to lapse.

On Tuesday, Doherty posted images on her Instagram account. In one, she is being hugged by her mother, Rosa Doherty. In another, friend and model Anne Marie Kortright takes a photo as the actress cuts her hair.
