An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Actress Lisa Ray has bone marrow cancer

It seems that the actress Lisa ray has cancer of the bone marrow – Myeloma. She writes on her blog about the recent diagnosis. Calling herself as the “Junior member” of the patients with Myeloma (she is 37, while the avg age is 65 for such a diagnosis).

For me, it was a relief to hear what was wrong. The plasma cells in my bone marrow were rampaging, multiplying, squeezing out the red blood cells and it was time to begin doing something about it. I was also tired of being tired all the time. And you just know when something is not kosher with your body. So when I sat there with Bobcat- my life partner and reservoir of Yellow- and got the news I didn’t react and I didn’t cry. I’m an actress, believe me, I can be dramatic. Not just then though.

Although she realises that it is incurable.. she is still hopeful. I wish her well.. hopefully something will come out in the medical science that will help her go like she is.
