Cancer-stricken Lisa Ray hoping against hope
“When I got the news, I didn’t react and I didn’t cry,” these are the very words of actress Lisa Ray who has been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a cancer of the white blood cells.

Ray has given a detailed account of her condition on her blog, The Yellow Diaries.

“A few months ago my bone marrow started sending me messages. The signals: I was always exhausted, pale, drained, and completely depleted of red blood cells,” Lisa, who has worked in films like Kasoor, Bollywood Hollywood and Water, wrote.

Lisa disclosed that her body started sending her signals when she was busy building a career for herself.

“And then I stopped travelling and returned to Canada. Got myself tested by Dr Susy Lin, landed in emergency and eventually got full membership into the Cancer Club. That’s how I found out I have Multiple Myeloma,” she wrote.

The actress was diagnosed on June 23rd and began her first cycle of treatment on July 2nd.

“I asked around if I should speak openly about getting diagnosed recently with Multiple Myeloma. Some advised me to keep my ‘condition’ a secret as it could negatively affect my career. Buh? I’m plumper, redder, more energetic and wily than ever before - Kiss me like I’ve been kidnapped!” the feisty Canadian wrote.

While Lisa is under no illusion that Myeloma is incurable, she’s indomitably optimistic it can be cured.

“I believe it can be cured… That’s the Dirty Realist in me.”

That Lisa is a fighter and hoping for something good even in the face of this incurable disease is apparent from her words: “Don’t get me wrong. Its true the deepest crises are moments of great opportunity. An event that shocks you into seeing with heart. A place from which to combine survival and celebration.”

Hats off to you, Lisa!
