Lisa, who calls herself a cancer graduate, tweeted on Saturday: "Dear Sonali Bendre, you are in my thoughts. Words often fall short and I've learned that okay, but I do want to send love."

Lisa was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the white blood cells known as plasma cells which produce antibodies in 2009. A year later, she announced that she was cancer-free, after a stem cell transplant. As multiple myeloma is incurable, she is not completely cured of the disease.
