On February 4, Monday that commemorates with World Cancer Day, Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife Tahira Kashyap, who is taking her battle against breast cancer head-on, shared a bold post on social media. She penned down a long caption for the photo, which is very motivational for all cancer fighters, survivors and anybody going through a hard time, actually.
Embracing her scars as her ‘badges of honor,’ the writer said, “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 honor.”
“There is nothing known as perfect”, she said, adding, “Happiness lies in truly accepting yourself.” She further said that the decision to upload the post was a tough one for her. Check out her post below, which is highly inspirational in ways more than one.
“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,” she said.
