 'I Didn't React After Learning About Cancer' Says Lisa Ray

Bollywood star Lisa Ray, who was recently diagnosed with incurable cancer, said that she didn't react after learning that she had Multiple Myeloma.

The Kasoor star revealed the shocking news on her blog last week, explaining she was battling Multiple Myeloma, a rare type of cancer of the bone marrow.

The 37-year-old stunner told fans she learned of her disease in June (09) and started her first cycle of treatment weeks later.

In her blog, she wrote that when she got the news, "I didn't react and I didn't cry".

"That's how I felt after the diagnosis. Ok, I've got The Cancer. The tough part is over", she adds.

Acclaimed Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed has applauded Lisa's fighting spirit and courage while triumphantly facing her toughest battle and staying optimistic and in great spirit.

Lisa further writes in her blog: "Myeloma is incurable...I believe it can be cured...That's the Dirty Realist in me...I'm aiming for Full Remission...I am humbled and inspired."

Although Lisa believes in alternative treatments/medication, but right now she has chosen not to mix therapies. She is going through chemotherapy which will finish in end of October and is aiming for a stem cell transplant and to be symptom free by December.

Her treatments reportedly include heavy doses of dexamethasone and other steroids.
