Even before everyone came over of Irfan Khan's health condition, Bollywood is shocked to know that actress Sonali Bendre is diagnosed with cancer. The actress took strength to announce the same on the social media. She sought the support of the friends and family members and is confident to fight the battle with cancer.
"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. 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. And so, as advised by my doctors, 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. 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." tweeted Sonali Bendre.
