“First day of radiation treatment. I look like I’m about to make a run for it which is accurate. Radiation is frightening to me,” Doherty wrote as her caption. “Something about not being able to see the laser, see the treatment and having this machine moving around you just scares me. I’m sure I’ll get used to it but right now…. I hate it. #radiation #radiationmondaysucks #stillfightinglikeagirl”
