Shannen Doherty Honored by American Cancer Society

Surrounded by friends and family including Sara Michelle Gellar and Chelsea Handler, actress Shannen Doherty was honored by the American Cancer Society with the Courage Award and gave a heartfelt speech of hope.

"I don't view it as me accepting the Courage Award for myself," Doherty said. "I'm accepting the Courage Award on behalf of every single cancer patient out there because it takes a lot of courage."

Congratulations Shannen!
