Sonali Bendre who is currently battling cancer and is receiving treatment in the US wrote a heartwarming note for thanking her son for his support.
The actress and author shared a image with her son, Ranveer and the note that read, “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, out biggest dilemma was what and how we were going to tell him.”
The actress said she is glad that they decided to talk to him and not keep him in dark, ” 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!”
Ranveer has become he strength in time of need and they have been spending time together, “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.
