Sonali Bendre receives love from ‘cancer graduate’ Lisa Ray – read message
Sonali is currently undergoing treatment for cancer in New York

Sonali-Bendre-20622910, who revealed earlier this week that she has been diagnosed with a “high-grade cancer”. Sonali is currently undergoing treatment in New York. The news about her health led a slew of film fraternity members to post heartfelt messages of support to Sonali and her family. Lisa, who calls herself a cancer graduate, tweeted on Saturday, “Dear Sonali Bendre, you are in my thoughts. Words often fall short and I’ve learned that okay, but I do want to send love.”

In 2009, Lisa was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the white blood cells known as plasma cells which produce antibodies. A year later, she announced that she was cancer-free, after a stem cell transplant. As multiple myeloma is incurable, she is not completely cured of the disease.

On hearing about Sonali’s condition, Akshay went to New York to meet her. While speaking to HT, sending his prayers, he said, “I know that Sonali is a fighter. May God help bring her back in the best of health.”

For the uninitiated, Sonali Bendre is suffering from high grade cancer. She had recently issued a statement that read, “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.”
