Sonali Bendre is overwhelmed to receive outpouring love after she revealed that she has been diagnosed with high-grade cancer. The actor, who is currently undergoing treatment in New York, took to Instagram to share how she is battling it out with the life-threatening ailment. In the latest photo, Sonali sports a short bob cut and was simply dressed in a black top and blue jeans.

She expressed gratitude towards her well-wishers and thanked those who shared their survival stories or those of their loved ones. The actor added that the stories and love have given her immense strength and made her feel that she is not alone.

The 43-year-old star wrote, "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".

 

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. ðŸ¤ÂžðŸÂÂŒž
