Shannen Doherty sta affrontando la dura battaglia contro il cancro anche grazie all’amore della sua famiglia, dei suoi fan e di Kurt Iswarienko, l’uomo che ha scelto e sposato cinque anni fa.
L’ex stellina di Beverly Hills 902010 e di Streghe ha pubblicato l’ennesimo scatto che la vede in compagnia del suo grande amore, in occasione di una sfida che sta girando in questi giorni su Instagram con l’hashtag #loveyourspousechallenge.
Scegliere la foto giusta è stata un’impresa, e non perché negli scatti delle ultime settimane Shannen appare seriamente provata dalle cure, ma perché sono talmente tante e talmente belle le foto di lei e Kurt che selezionarne solo una non è stato compito facile.
«Amo il mio compagno ogni giorno, la vera sfida è scegliere quale immagine pubblicare per trasmettere questo amore a tutti voi – ha scritto Shannen Doherty dopo aver scelto uno scatto che la ritrae con Kurt e il loro cane in un bosco – Amo le foto del nostro matrimonio, e le mie foto con i capelli, le ciglia e le sopracciglia, ma le mie foto preferite sono quelle di noi adesso, perché la sfida è adesso. È una sfida amara, affrontare la malattia e un futuro incerto. È difficile sentirsi bella e sexy quando si fa la chemioterapia. Eppure ci siamo, più forti di prima e più innamorati che mai».
It’s the 7th and final day of #loveyourspousechallenge I love my spouse every day so no challenge there. The real challenge was choosing what pictures to post that would convey that love to all of you. Sure, I love our wedding pictures and pictures of me with hair and eyelashes and eyebrows but my favorite pictures are of us now. Now because now is the challenge. It’s challenging to love thru grief, sickness, an uncertain future. It’s hard to feel sexy and beautiful when going thru chemo and therefore it’s challenging to allow one to love you. I imagine my husband has faced challenges during this time with me and yet here we are… stronger than ever. More in love than ever. More trusting, more supportive. More confident with one another. Just more. Now. I challenge us @kurtiswarienko to always hold onto the now of us. And @sarahmgellar thank you my beautiful friend for challenging us. Also thank you to all of you for your well wishes. Your prayers and for following this journey I’m a lucky girl.
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. 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.
5th day of #loveyourspousechallenge Our honeymoon. @kurtiswarienko surprised me by taking me to South Africa. By far the best trip I’ve ever been on. It was enlightening, inspiring and life changing. Only kurt would understand me well enough to know that this was the perfect honeymoon trip. As I said before…. I’m lucky. I married my other half, my soul mate.
My friend @sarahmgellar softly suggested a challenge to @kurtiswarienko and myself to do the 7 day #loveyourspousechallenge and we accepted! She was telling me about going thru old photos and the memories and emotions they evoke. This morning, I felt that and I’m thankful Sarah challenged us. Our wedding was exceptional and not for the big event it was. It was exceptional because we committed for better or worse, in sickness or in health to love and cherish one another. Those vows have never meant more than they do now. 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.
