Cancer - the C word, is so dreadful that it is rarely said. It sends shivers down the spine and scares everyone. Most of us stay delusional about it, but when it does strike, we question, “why me?" The deadly disease is like an uninvited guest who shows up at your house and never leaves. It not only stirs the mind of those suffering from it but also the entire family.
Canadian-Indian actress Lisa Ray had revealed that she had multiple myeloma to media when she attended the Toronto International Film Festival to support her work in 2009 film Cooking with Stella. The cancer survivor since then has dedicated her life to spreading awareness and helping the patients suffering from the disease.

She is happy that even in those times, she came out publicly.
