Sonali Bendre has been a very talented and successful actress in the Bollywood industry. Recently a report which states that she has been diagnosed with metastatic cancer. It is being said as high-grade cancer. The news has shocked all the fans and the whole Bollywood industry. Earlier, Irrfan Khan, who is a very successful actor in the film industry was also diagnosed with brain cancer and now suddenly the actress Sonali Bendre is diagnosed with metastatic cancer which is again a very bad news for the fans and the film industry. The news went viral after Sonali Bendre’s social media post where she confirmed her cancer.
In the social media post, Sonali Bendre says that sometimes life throws a curveball when you least expect it. The post says,
“Sometimes when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with high-grade cancer that has metastasized, 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.”
Sonali Bendre has shown her gratitude towards the closed ones and stated that they have been with her like pillars in this difficult time.
Sonali Bendre has said that it is better to an action right now and so she has been in New York for her treatment. Sonali Bendre stated-
“There is no better way to tackle this than to take swift and immediate action. And so, as adviced by my doctors, I am currently undergoing a course of treatment in New York. 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. “
She said that she would be tackling this problem with complete determination and said,
“I’m taking this battle head-on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me.”
Metastatic cancer means when the cancer cells spread to the other new areas of the body. According to the National Cancer Institute,
“In metastasis, cancer cells break away from where they were first formed (primary cancer), travel through the blood or lymph system, and form new tumours (metastatic tumours) in other parts of the body. A metastatic tumour is the same type of cancer as a primary tumour.”
From this, we can figure out how serious the situation is right now for Sonali Bendre as cancer has already spread to the other parts of the body.
Metastatic cancer means that the cancer is at the advanced stage. The cancer of Sonali Bendre has been diagnosed at the fourth stage which is a very bad news for the whole Bollywood industry. Cancers can be on locally advanced stage also when the cells haven’t spread to the other organs but this is not in the case of Sonali Bendre. Metastatic cancer is different from the locally advanced cancer where the cancer cells have targeted her other organs. This type of cancer mainly targets the areas of the liver, lungs, lymph nodes and bones.
Talking about the current scenario, she has been going through her treatment in New York. This is truly a very difficult time for Sonali Bendre and also her family and that too when she has been diagnosed with cancer on her fourth stage. The news has been completely shocking for the Bollywood fans and the whole film industry also. In her difficult time, everyone from the film industry and her fans are praying for her so that she can recover from this deadly disease. Let’s hope that she successfully completes her treatment and we can see her again in a good position.
