"This is Maggie. I've seen Maggie five days a week for what seems like forever. We have a love hate relationship. I love her because she's part of the life saving treatment I'm receiving. It's astounding how far we have come with technology," Shannen wrote next to her photo with the radiotherapy machine.
"One day, Maggie will be retired and the cure will be found. Things like immunotherapy are the future but for now.... it's me and Maggie. I'm seeing her twice tomorrow so that I can wrap this phase up faster," she added to detail how she carries the agenda of her treatment. "Goodnight sweet Maggie. See ya tomorrow," she said, eager to break up their relationship soon.

In recent days, Shannen shared an image in which she presents the medical team that is helping her with the treatment. In addition to them, her husbans, Kurt Iswarienko, her mom and her best friends have become the most important pillars for her recovery.
For her courage and the publications she has made in this difficult situation, Shannen received the American Cancer Society Courage Award and revealed to ET that she accepted the award on behalf of all people who, like her, face a struggle against cancer. "Courage isn't something that comes to you immediately," she continued. "It's not something that you have fully. Courage is something that you gain and it grows. Courage is facing every day and every obstacle one step at a time. Courage is knowing that fear is not going to find a solution; it's not going to help you find a cure," she said.
