New Delhi: On the occasion of National Cancer Awareness Day, Sonali Bendre who was diagnosed with high-grade cancer, urged people to step out and go for a health check-up.
In a post on her Twitter handle, Sonali shared her throwback picture which seems from the days of her treatment and asked people to ‘pledge to protect their family/friend by scheduling a health checkup.’
“#YouCanToday. This #NationalCancerAwarenessDay, make sure you pledge to protect yourself and your family/friend by scheduling a health checkup. Be aware and do the tests, especially if cancer runs in your family… because trust me, early detection saves lives!”
Adding, ” You can make a difference. Commit to getting a test done today. Get someone you care about to do the same.”
