On World Cancer Day 2019, Sonali Bendre Pens Her Thoughts In The Most Heartfelt Manner
Today, as we discuss cancer and the fears attached to it, actress Sonali Bendre too shares her innermost thoughts. The actress is suffering from metastatic cancer, but she has lived each and every moment with complete happiness, not showing any signs of falling low. From going bald to smiling through every problem, Sonali has put up a brave front.

Now, she is back in India for a sabbatical and on this day, she pens a heartfelt message that’s making us go teary-eyed for obvious reasons. She writes, “World Cancer Day… who would have thought it would become such a thing… but it has! And just the mere mention of the C word brings dread in the hearts of anyone who hears it. We fear it so much that we’d rather not talk about it… which is why it’s important to have a day where we pull out the band aid and help us deal with this disease. I was scared too, but soon realised that burying my head in the sand was not the way to deal with this.

And so… with the little experience I have had, I urge you all to take the time to understand it. There's more to cancer than being emotional or weak or even being called a fighter or a survivor. It requires you to study it, find out what works for you and to be diligent about your treatment. It requires days of strongly believing in oneself, of knowing that tomorrow will be better than today. It is not a fight against negative thoughts. It's taking a stand to not give in, no matter what. Most importantly, it is about living every day, and not just surviving. Just taking it #OneDayAtATime makes it easier to #SwitchOnTheSunshine.


Let’s wish her a speedy recovery!
