On World Cancer Day 2019, cancer-stricken Tahira Kashyap has taken to social media and shared a picture of her bare back. On September 22, 2018, Tahira had announced the deadly C with a picture from the hospital. She was suffering from breast cancer stage 0. Later, Tahira entered 2019 as a cancer-free person and had shared the good news on social media.
Now sharing a picture that shows the mark on her back, she wrote, “Today is my day! Wish you all a happy #worldcancerday and hope each one of us celebrates this day in an embracing way. That we remove any stigma or taboo associated with it. That we spread awareness about it and that we have self love no matter what. I truly embrace all my scars as they are my badges of honour. There is nothing known as perfect. Happiness lies in truly accepting yourself. This was a tough one for me. But this picture was my decision as I want to celebrate not the disease but the spirit with which I endured. To quote my mentor, Diasaku Ikeda, “Leading an undefeated life is eternal victory. Not being defeated, never giving up, is actually a greater victory than winning, not being defeated means having the courage to rise to the challenge. However many times we’re knocked down, the important thing is we keep getting up and taking one step-even a half step- forward #worldcancerday #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerwarrior #turningkarmaintomission #boddhisatva. Thanks @atulkasbekar for this one.”
A few minutes ago, Sonali Bendre also shared her picture with a strong post. Strong women, they are!
