Actress Sonali Bendre, who recently revealed that she has been diagnosed with metastatic cancer, thanked people for their outpouring of love in these difficult times.
“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,” she wrote in a new post on her social media account. Terming the “outpouring of love” in the last few days “overwhelming”, the actress said she especially grateful to those of you who shared stories of 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,” the actress wrote.
“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,” the actress stated.
