Shannen Doherty has been publicly battling breast cancer since August 2015. And from the heart-wrenching decision to cut off all her hair to the somber announcement that the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes, it's been an incredibly difficult journey for her these last several months.
But the Beverly Hills, 90210 star, who is constantly updating fans and followers on her health status and personal journey, took a moment to share on Instagram a bright spot in the midst of darkness.

The actress was feeling strong enough to get out of the house and spend some time with her mom, who has long been supporting her in her fight. They decided to go to Cheesecake Factory, since the chain has such a huge menu and Doherty was sure she could find something that wouldn't make her feel sick.
After a successful, uneventful meal, she asked for the bill. But she got the below note instead.
Clearly, staff members Rian and Lloyd had been following her story and wanted to let her know exactly how they felt about it.
"They didn't care about a thank you for picking up my bill," Doherty wrote in a caption praising the staff. "They simply wanted to do something nice."
But she wanted to properly thank them anyway--and send a larger message about the importance of a simple good deed during the tough times.
"I wish there were more people like you," she wrote. "Your kindness blew me away today."
