Ayushmann Khurrana's wife Tahira Kashyap opened up about being diagnosed with stage 0 cancer on Saturday. She has been getting strength not just from her family, but even from the film fraternity. Sonali Bendre (who herself is fighting metastatic cancer in stage 4), Esha Gupta, Ekta Kapoor, Dia Mirza and many others sent their wishes to the ailing Tahira. A little while ago, Tahira took to her Instagram to share a picture of herself where she mentions that she is back to her daily routine.
Tahira can be seen sitting at a coffee shop and working on her laptop. She captioned the pic as: "Back to doing what I do (under mama's supervision but) (sic)." Check out her pic right here:
Ayushmann had thanked fans, family and friends for standing by him and Tahira. He had shared Tahira's post on cancer detection and wrote with it, "Thanks for your wishes & support. Last 7 days have been tough but we have decided to have a happy life state & fight this challenge. Im proud of my warrior princess (sic)."
Tahira opened up about the illness in a long post. She had written, "An opportunity to give competition to the Kardashians just went wasted! A week back I mentioned about ‘my badge of honour’ that I was going to receive. And I did and am happy to share about it with the intention of it being received with love. As that’s the only reason I am posting it. Love for self and gratitude for the universe. The picture might be disturbing for some, but these drains have become my dumbells for a few days. I was detected with DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) in my right breast with high grade malignant cells. Simply put stage 0 cancer/ pre-cancerous stage, with cancer cells multiplying in a contained area. The result I have become a half Indian version of Angelina Jolie (since only one breast was involved)! I told my doctor now is the time to give some competition to the Kardashians since Pamela is passé. But no one listened to me, so now I have a portion of my back tissue in my breast. Perhaps now I can do chin-ups with my breasts! Jokes apart, this obstacle has given me a new definition of life. Respect it’s unpredictability and have the faith and courage to be the hero of your own drama of life. The invincible human spirit is God like, gives you the courage to endure and the will to revive. There is nothing that human spirit can’t do. Also I want women of all ages to be aware. I am 35, and I was returned twice over from a mammogram. If any symptoms come up, think of it as a protective force and get yourselves examined. Also we are so obsessed with boobs. This mastectomy has left me with even more self love! Big, small, left or right inclined , gravity pulling or defying, or even none, each breast the presence or lack of it has a story to tell. Mine has made me a 2.0 version of myself! This post is dedicated to awareness, self love and resilience of a warrior that I know each one of us possesses #breastcancerawareness #selflove #determination #faith #bodhisattva #bodhisattvaoftheearth (sic)." SpotboyE.com continues to stand by Ayushmann and Tahira in their tough phase of life.
