While addressing the audience, the cancer survivor said, “You are taught that be tough. You can bear the pain; you have to bear a child. So, you internalise that and so you are always thinking that I can bear the pain. I kept telling myself that I am putting in an 18 hour a day, so obviously, I am fine, I am not dying.”

She accepted her ignorance towards what her body was facing, “The body was sending me signals; I wasn’t looking at it as I should have.”
“That’s where it started for me, not listening to the signals. I went in for a TCRE procedure. We suddenly discovered that something was there. And then we came to know it wasn’t just there, it spread all over,” Bendre explained.
Discussing further on the need to have insurance, “We need to have insurance. Half the time we think this isn’t going to happen to me and when it happens, you realise it can happen to anyone and you need to be prepared.”

The actor said, “It is a disease that is scary; it can’t be diagnosed very easily. Early detection is what is most important when this disease is concerned.”
Sonali came out fiercely on social media and shared what she was going through, “As I shared it on my social media, the response that I got was shocking for me.”
“There were people from all strata’s of society writing into me and saying, this happened to my aunt, to my son, grandmother. And suddenly I thought if this has been so prevalent, why have I never heard of it?”
Sonali thanked the panel and gratuitously expressed her happiness to have been called there. The actor firmly said that she would be happy in laying out any support in any way possible.
