She said Piro explained that she would have to undergo "hormone therapy to block the estrogen fueling her cancer, plus a second targeted drug that is often effective at stabilizing metastatic disease." "I try to treasure all the small moments that most people don't really see or take for granted," she said. "I was like, 'OK, do I have good karma? Do I have bad karma? Why would I have bad karma?' I started taking stock of my life and the things I'd done, and the things I hadn't done. How I was with people," Doherty said. She has plans to write letters and leave video messages for friends and family for after her death. "It's like anybody with Stage IV faces this sort of thing, where others want to put you out to pasture," Doherty said. "I'm not ready for pasture. I've got a lot of life in me."
