Krysta Rodriguez is an American singer and actress. The news that she recently died of cancer and the last words claiming to be written by her is going viral on social media. The posts also have pre and post treatment photos attached to them.

The post also mentions, “This house, this car, this jet, this furniture, so many bank accounts, so much reputation and fame, none of them are useful. None of all valuables could give me relief. The real meaning of life is about knowing our Savior JESUS CHRIST, serving Him is the best thing that we can do. JESUS is the answer for everything. He alone can satisfy our life.” Some of the posts with such a claim can be seen here, here and here.

What is the truth?

With further search, Sonali Bendre’s post on her official Instagram page on June 6, 2021, is found. It reads “How time flies… today when I look back, I see strength, I see weakness but most importantly I see the will to not let the C word define how my life will be after it…You create the life you choose. The journey is what you make of it… so remember to take. #OneDayAtATime and to #SwitchOnTheSunshine #Cancer Survivors Day”.

And in a post on her Instagram page dated July 4, 2018, she mentioned that “…she has been diagnosed with a high grade cancer that has metastised…”

It is known that she suffered from cancer in 2018 and then received treatment at a hospital in New York City, fully recovered from Level 4 – Metastatic breast cancer in 2021 and is currently healthy through the news published by The Hindustan Times and NDTV.
