‘Because even though I am thriving and I’m doing well, I still have cancer and you don’t want stage four.

‘But I have it and so I think in the back of my mind, this constant sort of OK, “What can I do to help bring more awareness, what can I do the help raise money, what can I do to sort of push research for not just myself but for everybody else who is suffering from cancer?”‘

But more ‘realistically’, Shannen – who is married to Kurt Iswarienko – just hopes her own health stays ‘stable’, she continues to work, and her relationships with her loved ones stay strong in 2022.

She said: ‘I’m doing great and I feel great. 

‘I I feel really blessed, this year’s been kind of an interesting year for me because work is so important to me and especially as somebody with cancer, you want to constantly put it out there that you know you’re so hirable, you’re so employable and that oftentimes for people like myself, it’s the work that helps drive us.

‘It’s the work that I wake up in the morning so excited to go create, and do my job, which is a job that I actually love, and this year’s just been phenomenal. 

‘I’ve done a lot of work, a movie that I did for Lifetime called List of Lifetime just got nominated this morning for a Critics Choice Award, so that’s pretty special.’
