Sonali Bendre's struggle against cancer has been an inspiration to millions who are battling this disease. Since July last year, when she first told her fans that she has been diagnosed with it, she has been constantly posting updates of her fight on social media and, quite literally, taken people along. While she has described her feelings during the process, it is only now that she has opened up about the first few days when she came to know of her disease.
During a media interaction, Sonali shared that she was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Cancer. It was her husband Goldie Behl's idea to fly to New York for treatment, Sonali said that the doctors in New York had told her that she had a 30 percent chance.
Sonali shared that she didn't want to go to New York at all leaving her life and home behind and said, "It was my husband who dragged me there. I fought with him all the way like why are you doing this.. we have doctors here, why are you taking me away. My life, my home.. in three days, we literally just packed and left an I don't know what is happening why are we going through this."
"But he was just quiet through the whole thing and just focussed. In the day, he was organizing and in the night, because New York was awake, he was again organizing. So, I got him to actually crib about the whole thing on the flight. Through the flight, I cribbed. I was venting," she shared.
Sonali went on to share that while they had sent the doctors her test reports beforehand, they visited them the next day after landing. She cited, "Next day we go to the doctor and he looks at everything and we had sent all our tests and everything and he said it's the fourth stage and you have 30 percent chance and I was like what." She added, "That really hit me and I just turned to Goldie. I remember looking at him and saying thank god you got me here."
