'Cancer graduate' Lisa Ray sends love to Sonali Bendre

Mumbai: Indo-Canadian actress Lisa Ray, a cancer survivor, has sent love and wishes to Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre, who revealed earlier this week that she has been diagnosed with a "high-grade cancer".

Sonali is currently undergoing treatment in New York. The news about her health led a slew of film fraternity members to post heartfelt messages of support to Sonali and her family. 

Lisa, who calls herself a cancer graduate, tweeted on Saturday: "Dear Sonali Bendre, you are in my thoughts. Words often fall short and I've learned that okay, but I do want to send love."

Lisa was in 2009 diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the white blood cells known as plasma cells which produce antibodies. A year later, she announced that she was cancer-free, after a stem cell transplant. As multiple myeloma is incurable, she is not completely cured of the disease.
