When the gorgeous Sarfarosh actress Sonali Bendre shared the news of being diagnosed with Cancer on Instagram yesterday, her fans (including us) and well wishers went into a frenzy and did not shy away from pouring her all the love, health and a speedy recovery. And even though she is undergoing treatment, we’re still reeling in shock, but that’s how the vicious circle of life works, right? Earlier this year, actor Irfan Khan was also diagnosed with a rare cancerous tumour in his brain and is undergoing treatment as well. However, there are also those fallen heroes who have emerged as survivors of Cancer and battled the disease like warriors, inspiring us and everyone around them to move on with life because it can surprise you any time!

The timeless beauty who gave hit like Jai Jai Shiv Shankar and Dil Ke Jhaorke Mey fought to ward off breast cancer for 11 long years and emerged like a winner. Who does she thank? A healthy lifestyle.

But Yuvi being the fighter that he is, underwent chemo and returned to pen down his journey in his book “The Test of My Life”. Today he is seen raising cancer awareness!


Undergoing a stem cell transplant, model turned actor, Lisa Ray perished from the limelight and only came out in 2010 when she had battled the disease and pronounced healthy.


He was told that he had 50% chance to live but guess what? Anurag Basu became the gangster to the cancer he had and gave us Barfi.
