'I am trying to maintain a positive outlook'

Last updated on: July 10, 2018 16:15 IST

'Your stories have given me an extra dosage of strength and courage, and more importantly, the knowledge that I'm not alone.'

Sonali Bendre, who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer in New York, posted some pictures along with a note.

The actress had revealed her illness in an Instagram post on July 5 .

In her new post, Sonali writes, '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.'

Sonali also posted a video of her hair cut. Here are some images from the video where you can see Sonali's mixed emotions as her hair gets shorter with her supportive husband Goldie Behl at her side.
