Sonali Bendre Embraces Life With Cancer

Few days ago Sonali Bendre had issued an official statement where she is said to have been diagnosed with a high grade cancer and was in New York for the treatment. From her fans to her colleagues, unending love, prayers and wishes were pouring for the actress.
Today, the actress shared a beautiful new-look and a video of shortening her hair on her Instagram and thanked her well-wishers for sharing their stories. She also wrote how their stories and love has helped her to battle the cancer and to make her feel that she is 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. ????

After the news broke, Akshay Kumar was the first celebrity to meet her in the New York recently. Stay strong and more positive as usual, Sonali! We are praying for your speedy recovery.
