She also shared with fans her experience during the break.
“I am a cancer thriver, I know its been a really long time since I graced your screens but I’ve been on a path of recovery, self-discovery, healing and self-love, but I’m back. During this cancer awareness month, I’ll be bringing you a special report on cancer but with a twist.”
In another feature titled “anjlee gadhvi chronicles her journey of pain and resilience in battling cancer” she shared details of her battle with the disease.
“I had the desire to live, but I was faced with two scenarios. I had no money to undergo a transplant and didn’t have a suitable donor.”
In 2016, an appeal was sent to Kenyans who raised 6.4 million in four hours.
Gadhvi later found a donor in Mumbai and the surgery lasted for 18 years and was told that she was cancer-free.
“A transplant isn’t easy, it is a lifestyle change, one has to accept. I am finally on the road to recovery…”
