BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Water actor Lisa Ray recently spoke about her successful battle against cancer and how the disease had relapsed a month after her marriage to Jason Dehni and that she had to hide it from her husband.
Talking on Kareena Kapoor Khan’s radio show What Women Want, she said, “I relapsed once. This is something that I have not spoken about extensively. It happened just a month after getting married. That was a really difficult time. I was actually hiding that secret from my husband. I thought I just have to get through the shaadi and then I will figure out what to do. So, that was a real low, because the first time I was dealing with cancer, I was single,” she said, adding that it was “very harrowing” to see the effect of such news on loved ones.”
She also said, “I had this beautiful man who had just become my husband and consented to getting married to this woman with this fatal disease, and the first piece of news that I had to share with him was, ‘Baby, thanks for marrying me. By the way, I probably have to go back on treatment.’ That was very difficult but at the same time, I took that as a signal that there was some piece of the puzzle that was missing in terms of the healing journey. So right after that, I started incorporating a lot of nutrition and holistic healing. Ironically, within three months of changing my diet radically, I was in remission.”
