Shannen Doherty enjoyed a celebratory girls night on Monday evening.

Ahead of her next round of chemotherapy on Wednesday, the 45-year-old actress dined with her friend, Anne Marie Kortright, at Nobu restaurant in Malibu.

“Love girls night with @annemkortright helping me celebrate feeling good enough to eat before Wednesday’s chemo,” Doherty penned of the beachfront snap she shared to Instagram.

She added the hashtags “#bff #fightlikeagirl #cancersucks #warrior” to the sweet photo.

In the pic, Doherty, who dons a blue and yellow headscarf, poses next to Kortright in front of the Southern California sunset.

On Monday, the breast cancer survivor reached a settlement in the cancer insurance lawsuit against her former business managers – Tanner, Mainstain Glynn & Johnson – according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

The amount that Doherty and the defendant settled for was not disclosed.

In 2015, the 90210 actress accused her manager for failing to pay her insurance premiums, allowing her health insurance to lapse, during which time she did not receive medical care.

According to the lawsuit, the actress was first diagnosed in March of 2015. She “discovered that she had invasive breast cancer metastatic to at least one lymph node,” the lawsuit reveals, and “was informed that her cancer had spread during 2014 (when she was uninsured).”

The actress, who is undergoing chemotherapy, revealed in early August that her cancer spread to her lymph nodes: “I had breast cancer that spread to the lymph nodes, and from one of my surgeries we discovered that some of the cancer cells might have actually gone out of the lymph nodes, so for that reason, we are doing chemo, and then after chemo, I’ll do radiation.”
