Shannen Doherty has shared a sweet snap with her husband Kurt Iswarienko as part of the #loveyourspouse challenge amid her battle with cancer.

Speaking frankly about their lives together after her diagnosis, the Charmed actress wrote: "It's the 6th day of the #loveyourspousechallenge. 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.

The actress shared a snap with her husband

"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."

The 45-year-old opened up to ET about her diagnosis back in August.

The star has opened up about her cancer battle

"Cancer has in a strange way done some amazing things for me. It's allowed me to be more me, like much more in touch with who I am, and much more vulnerable and the person that I always was, but I think it got hidden behind a lot of other stuff," she said.

"My marriage was always fantastic but it's even better now."

The star has been posting a photo a day as part of the #loveyourspousechallenge challenge, and has shared memories of her five-year marriage with Kurt, including a snap from their wedding day in 2011, writing: "Kurt has stood by my side thru sickness and makes me feel more loved now than ever. I would walk any path with this man. Take any bullet for him and slay every dragon to protect him. He is my soul mate. My other half. I am blessed."
