Shannen Doherty shared her love for her husband of five years, Kurt Iswarienko – and showed her hair growing back after being treated for cancer.

The actress, 45, has been participating in the #loveyourspousechallenge, which was first introduced by her close friend Sarah Michelle Gellar. In her most recent post on Saturday, Doherty shared a selfie of the couple, with the caption, “This is us now. Life has handed us an interesting card with cancer and although we would both prefer to not be faced with such a terrible disease, we must also search for the good.”

In the photo, Doherty’s hair appears to be growing back since undergoing chemotherapy. She went on to express her gratitude for those who have stood by her during this difficult time.

“Am I blessed? Yes. Blessed for my friends that I have. Blessed that I have a fantastic mom and blessed that this man is in my life. Cancer gives a clarity that is unique. I’ve seen friends run, I’ve seen strangers step up, I’ve seen the unwavering still unwaver and I’ve seen @kurtiswarienko there for it all. That’s friendship. That’s love,” she wrote.

Doherty told PEOPLE she was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2015.

Earlier last month, she told ET her marriage was “always fantastic” but “it’s even better now” since her diagnosis.
