Sonali Bendre, favorite Bollywood actress of many 90s kids including me, recently shared a heartbreaking post on social media. Apparently, the actor has been diagnosed with high stage Metastatic cancer. According to her post, niggling pain led to some tests, which led to the diagnosis.
Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a high-grade cancer that has metastised, which we frankly did not see coming.
Her friends and family are standing right with her in this tough times.
My family and close friends have rallied around me, providing the best support system that anyone can ask for. I am very blessed and thankful for each of them.
The actor has been undergoing a course of treatment in New York.
There is no better way to tackle this, than to take swift and immediate action. And so, as advised by my doctors, I am currently undergoing a course of treatment in New York.
The actor is ready to fight cancer head on. She’s overwhelmed with the support she is receiving.
We remain optimistic and I am determined to fight every step of the way. What has helped has been the immense outpouring of love and support I’ve received over the past few days, for which I am very grateful.
I’m taking this battle head on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me.
Here’s what she posted.
May you come out of this soon, healthy and stronger. Stay strong Sonali ma’am.
