Ever since Sonali Bendre announced that she is suffering from a "high-grade cancer," Bollywood has been abuzz with news of celeb health and how to reduce the risk of being exposed to such severe illnesses. Amid all this, Sonali posted a sweet photo on her Instagram -- featuring herself and son, Ranveer who she recently told about the ugly disease. 

Before you feel sad for the kid, read this, for you will know how brave her son is, even at such a tender age. 

In her post, she wrote: "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 well-being have been the centre of anything @goldiebehl and I ever did."

Contemplating on how to break the news to him, she continued: “And so, when the Big C reared its ugly head, our biggest dilemma was what and how we were going to tell him. 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."

But this is how he reacted: "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! 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 sidelines, 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."

"I'm spending time with Ranveer right now, while he's on summer vacation. His madness and shenanigans help me#SwitchOnTheSunshine. And today, we derive strength from each other#OneDayAtATime."

Sonali cut her hair and shared some pictures, so we all know that she is taking the battle with cancer, head on! What a beautiful mother-son duo. We wish all the best to Sonali for her recovery and strength to Ranveer.
