The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi has already began. While several of our Bollywood celebrities are busy welcoming Lord Ganesha in their homes, Sonali Bendre who is miles away in New York undergoing her treatment for cancer, is missing all the festivities. The actress recently took to her Instagram page to share a picture album of her son Ranveer as he celebrated the festival without her in Mumbai.
Sonali captioned the picture with a heart-warming message that read, "Sonali wrote a heart-warming message with pictures where we see her family doing the aarti. "Ganesh Chaturthi has always been very, very close to my heart. Missing the celebrations back home, but still feeling blessed. Have a happy one, filled with blessings, love and joy." Have a look at the picture here-

Back in July, Sonali had first shared the news that she has been diagnosed with metastatic cancer and flew to New York to undergo treatment for the same. Later the actress revealed how her family including her son Ranveer took the news in a mature way.
In another post, she mentioned, "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! 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."
Later her hubby Goldie Behil had tweeted, "Her husband, Goldie Behl, recently wrote on Twitter, "Thank you all for the love and support for Sonali. She is stable and is following her treatment without any complications. This is a long journey but we have begun positively."
