'I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. I underwent mastectomy and chemotherapy and radiation treatments. I often had a nosebleed from chemotherapy. I don't know if any of you have experienced this. I amused myself by wearing funny pajamas given to me by my friend. Did they actually improve my mood? Yes! I looked hilarious and laughed to myself. Humor helped me get through what seemed impossible. I hope we will all be able to find humor in impossible situations, ' Shannen wrote.
