Sonali Bendre is currently in New York, undergoing treatment for cancer. She was diagnosed with the disease a few days back but that didn’t stop her from being hopeful and positive about the changing circumstances. Say for that matter, even when she informed about her cancer through her very first social media post, she mentioned, “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.” Such is this kind of fighter she is and well, it’s all coming from the love that she’s getting from her husband who seems to be doing everything to ensure that she doesn’t lose her smile. One look at the above picture and you will know what we are trying to say!

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. 🤞🌞 Thank you @tomoarakawa for making this a chic transition from long to short!
Sonali’s husband Goldie Behl is being a strong pillar of strength in this testing time. You can say, it’s this unconditional love that is helping Sonali gather all the courage to fight cancer and hope to bounce back as a winner. Hopefully, she will and we truly believe this love won’t go wasted.
