'I'm not alone', says Sonali Bendre who is battling cancer

New York, July 10 (IBNS): Actress Sonali Bendre, who has been diagnosed with cancer, once again shared a heart-touching post on Instagram on Tuesday.

She praised all people who have showered love on her at this critical juncture.

In the post, the actress said: "The outpouring of love I’ve received in the last few days has been so overwhelming… and I’m especially grateful to those of you who shared stories of your experiences in dealing with cancer, whether it was your own or of loved ones.

"Your stories have given me an extra dosage of strength and courage, and more importantly, the knowledge that I’m not alone."

 

In the words of my favourite author Isabel Allende, “We don't even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. In times of tragedy, of war, of necessity, people do amazing things. The human capacity for survival and renewal is awesome.” The outpouring of love I’ve received in the last few days has been so overwhelming… and I’m especially grateful to those of you who shared stories of your experiences in dealing with cancer, whether it was your own or of loved ones. Your stories have given me an extra dosage of strength and courage, and more importantly, the knowledge that I’m not alone. Each day comes with its own challenges and victories and so for now, I’m taking this #OneDayAtATime. The only thing I’m trying to be consistent about is maintaining a positive outlook... literally #SwitchOnTheSunshine - it’s my way of dealing with this. Sharing my journey is also part of this process... I can only hope it reminds you that all is not lost and that someone, somewhere understands what you’re going through. 🤞🌞

Sonali Bendre makes her cancer revelation on social media:

Sonali Bendre took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that she has been diagnosed with “high-grade cancer”.

According to her statement, she is undergoing treatment in New York.

The 43-year-old actress posted a picture of her and her husband-film producer Goldie Behl, accompanied by a long caption that tells how she got aware of the disease, the treatment she is undergoing and the support she is receiving from her family and friends.

"Sometimes when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with high-grade cancer, that has metastised, which we frankly did not see coming," she had tweeted.

"A niggling pain led to some tests which led to this unexpected diagnosis."

"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. There is no better way to tackle this than to take swift and immediate action," Bendre tweeted.

"I am currently undergoing a course of treatment in New York. We remain optimistic and I am determined to fight every step of the way... I am tackling this battle head-on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me," the actor said.

Known for her soothing beauty, Bendre received critical acclaim for her performances in Diljale in 1996, followed by Bhai (1997), Sarfarosh, Zakhm, Duplicate, Kadhalar Dhinam (Tamil film), Hum Saath-Saath Hain: We Stand United (1999), Tera Mera Saath Rahen (2001) and Anahat (2003) among others.
