The spirit with which Sonali is coping with her cancer is very inspiring. While Sonali is undergoing her treatment for cancer in a New York hospital, her son Ranveer is in Mumbai for his schooling. It is Ranveer’s birthday today, i.e. August 11, 2018, and Sonali shared on her Instagram, in a post, how proud she is of her ‘not-so-little one’. Sonali shared a beautiful video of the adorable moments with her son. Check it out here:
The beautiful Hum Sath Sath Hain actress captioned it, “Ranveeeeer! My sun, my moon, my stars, my sky... Okay, maybe I'm being a bit melodramatic, but your 13th birthday deserves this. Wow, you're a teenager now... Will need some time to wrap my head around that fact. I can't tell you enough how proud I am of you... Your wit, your humour, your strength, your kindness, and even your mischief. Happy happy birthday, my not-so-little one. It's the first one that we're not together... I miss you terribly. Lots and lots of love always and forever.... biiiiig hug! @rockbehl”. (Don't Miss: Sonali Bendre And Goldie Behl's Love Story Is A Beautiful Tale Of Accidental Love)
Ranveer has been a pillar of strength at this tough time for his mother, and sharing the heaps of support that she is getting from him through an Instagram post, Sonali wrote, “From the moment he was born 12 years, 11 months and 8 days ago, my amazing @rockbehl took ownership of my heart. From then on, his happiness and wellbeing have been the centre of anything @goldiebehl and I ever did. And so, when the Big C reared its ugly head, our biggest dilemma was what and how we were going to tell him.” (Also Read: Goldie Behl Talks About Wife Sonali Bendre's Condition While She Is Battling Cancer)
It could be further read as, “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! I believe that it’s imperative to keep kids involved in a situation like this. They are a lot more resilient than we give them credit for. It’s important to spend time with them and include them, rather than make them wait on the side-lines, not being told yet instinctively knowing everything. In our effort to protect them from the pain and realities of life, we might end up doing the opposite. I’m spending time with Ranveer right now, while he’s on summer vacation. His madness and shenanigans help me #SwitchOnTheSunshine. And today, we derive strength from each other #OneDayAtATime.”
Sonali shared the news on social media about her high-grade metastised cancer, and wrote, “Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a high grade cancer that has metastised, 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. There is no better way to tackle this, than to take swift and immediate action."
She further wrote, "And so, as advised 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. I’m taking this battle head on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me.” (Also Read: Fighting Against Cancer, Sonali Bendre Flaunts A New Hair Cut, Hubby Goldie's Reaction Is Lovely)

When we were kids, we all would fancy our parents expensive shoes. We loved walking in our father's shiny black shoes and our mom's red stelletoes and imitating them. We all have dreamt of buying an exactly similar pair when we grow up. Well, gone are the days when onlyRead More
