Sonali Bendre Thanks This Person For Being Her Rock

Sonali Bendre pens down her new Instagram post to thank one person who has been with her in New York while she underwent cancer treatment.

Ever since Sonali Bendre got diagnosed with high-grade cancer, she has always presented a brave front. Instead of being bogged down by the illness, she gave courage to many more victims through her inspirational Instagram posts with sheer determination. On July 4, Sonali took to social media to open up about her cancer. Since then, she has been sharing her struggles and motivating others from time to time.

This time Sonali Bendre opens up about the person who has been her support system all along. In an Instagram post, Sonali acknowledged her sister Rupa as her rock, on occasion of her birthday. She went on to describe how her sister has been with her every step along the way and how she decided to pack her bags to come with her to New York for her treatment when she got diagnosed with cancer.

"An older sister is a friend and defender – a listener, conspirator, a counselor and a sharer of delights. And sorrows too. – Pam Brown" Rupa Tai has been all this and more. She dropped everything in a heartbeat to be with me on this journey. She has been my rock…my person… Rupa Tai was involved in my journey from when I was diagnosed to the time I was deciding the course of treatment to packing her bags and coming with me to New York. She was there from get-go. Her transition from one role to another was seamless. A dictator when I needed to eat right or take my meds or an empathetic counselor alternating between giving advice and offering silent support when all I needed was to be alone with my thoughts. She was around. She was with me and by me, at all times. Sisters share a special relationship. We are literally an extension of each other. For bad days, her presence did the trick and the good days…well, it just got better! We have now returned home – to our respective families and lives, but us together in New York for those 6 months…I am forever indebted… #SwitchOnTheSunshine #OneDayAtATime @ranadiverupa
