Shannen Doherty is feeling the love.

The 45-year-old actress took to Instagram to share the story of a sweet surprise she received from two strangers over the weekend.

The former "Beverly Hills, 90210" and "Charmed" star shared a photo of a handwritten note the strangers left for her thanking her for her "bravery" and "openness."

"Today I was able to get out and attempt to eat and hang with my mom," Doherty, who's been publicly battling cancer since early 2015, explained in the photo's caption.

After she and her mother, Rosa, enjoyed a lunch at the Cheesecake Factory, Doherty wrote, "I asked for my bill and the above note was placed in front of me instead."

"No names attached, just the note..." wrote the actress, who was clearly touched by the gesture. "They didn't care about a thank you for picking up my bill. They simply wanted to do something nice."

Doherty then directly addressed the two strangers, whose identities she learned from her server. "Rian and Lloyd....I wish there were more people like you. Your kindness blew me away today. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. You both deserve a very blessed life"

Doherty's new friends join her large circle of supporters including her mom, her husband, Kurt Iswarienko, and longtime pal Sarah Michelle Gellar of "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" fame.

The actress was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2015, but revealed just weeks ago that the disease had spread to her lymph nodes. She underwent a single mastectomy, and is now undergoing chemotherapy treatments.

Doherty has been vocal with her gratitude for her loved ones, and told Entertainment Tonight she keeps them close to heart during her battle.

"Pain is manageable, you know living without a breast is manageable, it's the worry of your future and how your future is going to affect the people that you love," said Doherty.
