LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Ten months after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, Canadian actress Lisa Ray says she is cancer free, has enjoyed being bald, and is ready to embrace her second home, India, with new vigor.

The actress and model, frequently named as one of the most beautiful people in the world by Indian and Canadian media, says she is feeling "reborn" after a stem cell transplant in January to treat multiple myeloma.

"This has hijacked my life for long enough and now I am going to take matters into my own hands," Ray, 38, told Reuters.

"It's really been a kind of rebirth," she said of her radical stem cell transplant treatment. "It's like being reborn from the inside out. It's a big cleaning from the middle of your marrow and spreading out."

Multiple myeloma is a cancer of white blood cells that attacks and destroys bone and which more commonly afflicts people in their mid-60s. There is currently no known cure and treatment is focused on containment.

But Ray, born in Canada to an Indian father and Polish mother, chose to fight back, and chronicle her battle in a painfully honest yet humorous blog that has won her even more admirers.

The glossy-haired star of Bollywood movies "Water" and "Kasoor," showed off her new short-hair look this week in Los Angeles.

Her most recent movie, "Cooking with Stella," opened the Indian Film Festival in the U.S. city as a benefit for the Los Angeles-based Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research.

"My hair is coming back and it is looking awesome right now. I am just loving it. It is the sleekest and most well-put together I have ever looked," she laughed.

Ray recalled that she had cut off her long dark locks for her role in 2007 Oscar-nominated movie "Water." But having her hair fall out while undergoing cancer treatment was a different matter.

"What was traumatic about losing my hair this time was I didn't have a choice. But I have enjoyed being bald," she added, relishing the absence of shampoos, conditioners and hair dryers in her life.

RE-CONNECTING WITH INDIA

Ray got her first modeling job after being spotted in India at the age of 16 while on a family vacation. And India was the first place she headed for after her stem cell transplant.

"It was the best thing I could have done," she said. "I am planning to divide my time between Bombay and Canada now. I felt really re-embraced and re-connected with a world and people in that world that I had missed, and it feels right to start really re-engaging and spending a lot more time there."

"There has been some tension in my life, living and belonging on two continents. But now I have come to peace with it. I haven't come to some big transcendental conclusion about this, but on a personal level it feels like I really need to absorb both places."

Ray said she wanted to resume her acting and modeling career. But what excites her most is the offer of a publishing contract in India. Details are still under wraps.

"Writing is a renewed passion that I have re-discovered. It is a beautiful way of processing what I have been going through," she said of her blog.

"You can take the pain and understand it through the filter of art..It's been so valuable and I am definitely going to pursue it. I have a feeling that writing will become increasingly important in my life."

Ray also plans to continue efforts to raise awareness for multiple myeloma. Some 20 percent of proceeds from ticket sales to the "Cooking with Stella" screening at the Indian film festival in Los Angeles will go toward the Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research which works on designing new drug therapies for the condition.

"Obviously, it is in my benefit. But we also we have to understand that cancer, not just multiple myeloma, is reaching epidemic proportions and we need to take action," she said.

翻译:路透社—在被诊断为一种罕见癌症的十个月之后,加拿大演员Lisa Ray说她没有癌症的拖累了,很享受光头的样子,而且带着活力准备好迎接她第二个家,印度。

演员兼模特,多次被印度和加拿大的媒体称为世界上最美丽的她说道,自己感觉像是“重生”,在一月份的肝细胞移植治疗多发性骨髓癌以后。
“这已经足够长的时间耽搁了我的生命,现在我要考虑我自己手头上的事情了。”38岁的Ray告诉路透社。
“这真的是一种重生,”她说到她彻底的干细胞移植治疗。“它就像是从内到外脱胎换骨一样。从你的骨髓中来一个大清洗。”

多发性骨髓癌是一种白血细胞袭击和破坏骨骼的癌症,这个普遍困扰60多岁的人群。目前没有明确是否可以治愈,治疗方法集中在控制。
但是Ray,出生在加拿大,父亲是印度人母亲是波兰人,她选择了反击,在她痛苦并诚实幽默的博客里和她的战斗做长期斗争,这个使他赢得了更多的敬仰者。

在宝莱坞电影“Water”和“Kasoor”里有着光泽头发的明星,这周在LA展示了她的短发造型。
她最新的电影“cooking with Stella”揭开了作为美国城市LA的印度电影节的序幕,并能给当地骨髓癌和骨癌的研究机构盈利。
“我头发在长着,现在看上去不错。我很喜欢这个发型。这是我见过的最有光泽最好的头发了。”她笑着说道。
Ray回忆了她在2007年奥斯卡提名电影“water”中剪掉她长长的黑发的样子。但是当时剪头发和因为癌症治疗而剪头发是两码事。
“这次对于剪掉头发痛苦难忘的是因为我根本没有选择。但是我很享受成为一个光头。”她补充到,享受没有洗发水,不用空调和吹风机的生活。
回忆在印度的生活

Ray16岁在印度的家庭度假的时候得到了第一份模特工作。印度是她在干细胞移植后第一个前往的地方。
“这是我能做的最好的事情。”她说,“我正打算把我的时间分来在孟买和加拿大之间。我真的感觉在重新拥抱重新连接这个世界和在那个世界的我想念的人们,这种去开始一个真正的重新参与和花时间在印度的感觉很好。
“在两大洲生活使得我的生命有些焦虑和紧张。但是现在我得回归平静。我对这个没有很大的超出想象范围的结论,但是就个人层面来说它感觉我真的需要吸收这两个地方。”

Ray说她想恢复她的表演和模特生涯。但是让她感到最兴奋的是印度发来的一个出版的合约。细节仍然保密。
“写作是我重新发现的一个重燃的激情。它是一个美好的方式来记录我经历的事情的一个过程。”她在她的博客上写道。
“你可以忍受痛苦理解它,通过艺术的过滤。这是如此的宝贵,然而我一定要追随它。我有一种感觉,那就是写作将成为我生命中日益重要的东西。”

Ray还打算继续努力提高对多发性骨髓癌的认识。在LA的印度电影节里的“Cooking with Stella”20%的票房收入将给当地的骨髓癌和骨癌研究所来研发新的药物和疗法。
“显然,它对我有好处的。但是我们要了解那个癌症,不仅仅是多发性骨髓癌,已经达到了流行病的程度了,我们需要采取行动。”她说道。
