Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre is currently undergoing treatment for cancer. She has now shared an adorable post on Facebook, revealing how her son reacted to the entire issue.

Sonali, who is being treated for high-grade cancer in New York, narrated how her son Ranveer maturely handled the situation and is proving to be a source of strength for her.

Below is the message she posted as caption:

"From the moment he was born 12 years, 11 months and 8 days ago, my amazing Ranveer Behl took ownership of my heart. From then on, his happiness and wellbeing have been the centre of anything Goldie Behl and I ever did. 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. 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.

"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 [sic]."

Meanwhile, Sonali has undergone a transformation in her look as part of the treatment. She has cut her hair short. She is putting up a brave fight against cancer and several celebrities from the industry have wished for her speedy recovery.
