Shannen Doherty looked radiant on the red carpet of LA’s Baby2Baby gala despite the problems she is currently facing.

“At the @baby2baby gala. Such a wonderful evening with inspiring women like @kerrywashington who gave one of the most inspiring speeches and the gorgeous, funny @jessicaalba,” Doherty captioned her Instagram photo. “Check out #baby2baby an organization that helps supply necessities for children coming from low income or no income families.”

Doherty, who is best known for her roles in hit ‘90s TV series such as Charmed and Beverly Hills 90210, kept her style chic and classic with her black floor-length Vera Wang dress and silver jewelry as accessories. She styled her long, jet black hair in loose waves. This marks her first appearance since she revealed that she was battling breast cancer last month.

In her August interview with People, the actress admitted she was undergoing treatment for breast cancer but said she remains positive about her life. She opened up about her disease after she learned her former management firm, Tanner Mainstain, failed to pay her medical insurance on time. Her camp says that by the time Shannen Doherty was able to re-enroll with her provider and received medical attention, they found “invasive breast cancer metastatic to at least one lymph node.”

According to the lawsuit she filed, she could have undergone gentler treatment if the cancer had been detected earlier, and mastectomy and chemotherapy would not have been the only options left to treat her disease.

“In November 2013, SAG sent the premium invoice to Tanner Maintain for Plaintiff’s medical insurance coverage for the year 2014,” the suit stated. “However, Defendants ignore it, failed to pay it (without informing Plaintiff) and then promptly terminated their relationship with [Doherty] effective February 7, 2014.”

Kurt Iswarienko, Shannen Doherty’s husband is also filing charges against the management firm for mismanagement of their assets.
