Shannon Doherty is getting rid of things amid her breast cancer journey.

On a Monday episode of her iHeartRadio podcast "Let's Be Clear...with Shannen Doherty," the actress opened up about her diagnosis and the choice to get rid of her possessions.

"I have accumulated so much crap, and it's sitting in storage. I'm not enjoying it and others aren't enjoying it. And do I really need any of it? Do I need to have three dining room tables?" she said. "The answer is no, none of us really need all the stuff that we have, and we could all do with a little bit of downsizing and not become a hoarder."

The "Charmed" actress said she would sell off the furniture she has accumulated from antiquing, calling it "just stuff," to help fund vacations for her and her mom, Rosa.

"It doesn't really bring me any great joy, but what does bring me great joy is taking my mom to the places that she's always wanted to go to," Doherty said.

Doherty, 52, said she is focusing on her mom, saying that she knows "it's going to be hard on her if I pass away before her."

"Because it's going to be so hard on her, I want other things to be a lot easier. I don't want her to have a bunch of stuff to deal with. I don't want her to have four storage units filled with furniture," she said.

Doherty was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. She went into remission in 2017, but the cancer returned in 2019. She revealed on Instagram in June that cancer had spread to her brain amid her diagnosis with stage 4 breast cancer. She had a brain tumor surgically removed and underwent radiation.

In November, Doherty revealed that the cancer cells had spread to her bones but that she was still undergoing treatment and seeking clinical trials to join. A month later, she started "Let's Be Clear" as a "live memoir podcast."
