Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre took to Twitter and Instagram to share a shocking message with her followers.
The actress has been diagnosed with high-grade cancer, something the family didn’t see coming.
The Bollywood actress shared the frightening news with fans, adding that she’s currently receiving treatment in New York.
The Metastatic cancer is cancer that has spread from its initial site to another location within the host’s body. Each of the new sites is called metastases.
Metastasis is a term for cancer that spreads to a different part of the body from where it has originated.
It happens when cancer cells break away from the main tumor and enter the bloodstream which, in turn, can form new tumors in different parts of the body.
When she came to know about her Health issue her Instagram post made all to feel. ‘Sometimes when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball which we frankly did not see coming,’ she said in a statement on Instagram.
