“Hi, I just wanna say thank you. Thank you for all the emails and messages and the wishes. It’s really been amazing and overwhelming in the best of ways. So I just wanna take a second and let you know that I see them, I am reading them and I am taking them all in.

“Almost every single person I know has been touched by cancer in some way and I think we need to talk about them more. I think it would be helpful for all of us. So, I want to let you know that I am ready and open to sharing a little bit about my journey. So feel free to send questions and thoughts as you wish and I will do my best,” she added.


Sheetal also responded to questions about her long hair in recent pictures. “One question I am getting a lot is about my pictures in the last six month. (whispers) I have a wig! And sometimes I wear it, sometimes I don’t. So there you have it.,” she said.

Sheetal’s co-star from The World Unseen and I Can’t Think Straight, Lisa Ray called her a warrior in her supportive tweet. Lisa is also a cancer survivor.
