The women also took time to acknowledge their longstanding friendship. “It's so nice for me to have a friend who feels no threat, no jealousy. We've never felt that together, ”said Doherty. "We did nothing but uplift each other and support each other in our careers and support each other."

Gellar agreed. "I haven't had the easiest time working with many women, and it's never been the most positive," she said. "But having someone who believes in me like you do when I don't believe in myself … that shows me how to fight for the things that are important to me and the things that I want and the things I deserve … "

Doherty lives on her terms one day at a time. “Everyone's terminal. I could live a lot longer than someone who is perfectly healthy. You have no idea, ”she said to Gellar. “I think almost every cancer patient chases him. They chase the drugs. Your medications keep working and working and working and at some point your body may shut down on them and you will run out of various protocols that you can use. But really, you're just hoping that by the time this happens you have something else. And usually they do. "
