They say "Distance makes the heart grow fonder". It sure does. But let's never underestimate what distance teaches you. Being away from home in the city of New York, I realized I was walking amongst so many stories. Each trying to write their own chapter in different ways. Each struggling to do it but never giving up. Each taking it #OneDayAtATime. And now I'm on my way back to where my heart is. It's a feeling I can't describe in words but I'm going to try – it's the joy to see my family and friends again, the excitement to do what I love and mainly the gratitude for the journey I've had up until this moment. The fight is not yet over…but I'm happy and looking forward to this happy interval 🙂 It's time to learn that there is a new normal out there and I can't wait to embrace it and #SwitchOnTheSunshine. #NowPlaying #AdventureOfALifeTime🎵 And as my adventure with life continues these words by Chris Martin hit home, "Everything you want is a dream away. Under this pressure, under this weight We are diamonds taking shape…"
Sonali traveled to NYC to get chemo, Indian hospitals also provide good chemo but Sonali went NYC for better environment. The smoke in Mumbai is very bad for chemo receivers. NYC has fresher air and pollution is less there. For the first time Sonali had to leave her son alone at home, but she had no other choice.
Sonali had an operation and then she received a different type of chemo for six months. The beautiful actress had to let go her amazing hair. She posted pictures of her shaved head with pride, it was a sign she won and not her cancer.
Sonali’s friends and family were with her, Hrithik Roshan, Preity Zinta; Priyanka Chopra visited her in NYC. Her husband Goldie was her main source of strength.

It's always lovely to be part of someone's special moment and more so when it's a dear friend. What a fabulous evening @priyankachopra!!! Your bridal shower was filled with so much love and laughter. I wish all that and more for you as you take this next big step. Big hug and much love. P.S. it felt so great and also somewhat strange to wear a bright colour again! #RedIsTheColourOfRebirth
Sonali has the money, so she can travel to NYC and treat her cancer. But not every Indian can go to US for cancer treatment, however Indian doctors can treat cancer too, but need early diagnosis and awareness.
Sonali now wants her fans to get checked if they notice something different, like a cold that is staying for more than a month, a fever that is not going away even after taking antibiotics.
Hopefully Sonali’s journey will improve more women to take care of their health. We wish Sonali all the best and we hope she will go in remission soon.
