New Delhi, July 19: Sonali Bendre is battling cancer in New York and her new found source of support is her 12-year-old son Ranveer.
The actor, who revealed a few days ago that she has been diagnosed with ‘high grade’ cancer that has metastised, shared a new post on Instagram in which we can see her with son and a shorter hairdo. Smiling into the camera, Sonali and her son Ranveer reveal how the family has “switched on the sunshine” at this difficult time. Sonali has also written in the post that her 12-year-old son has become her “source of strength”.
Sonali said that her son handled the news of “the Big C” with maturity. Sonali Bendre also said that instead of trying to protect Ranveer, she and husband Goldie Behl decided to be honest with him. “As much as we wanted to protect him, we knew it was important to tell him the full facts. We’ve always been open and honest with him and this time it wasn’t going to be different. He took the news so maturely… and instantly became a source of strength and positivity for me. In some situations now, he even reverses roles and takes on being the parent, reminding me of things I need to do!”
Earlier this month, the actress took to her social media to release a statement, revealing that she has recently been diagnosed with high-grade cancer.
