Cancer is among the most fatal ailments. One who has battled with it, and moved forward can really understand its severity. Kudos to anyone who is battling with this deadly illness. By the way, did you know that yesterday (February 4) was the day of the bravehearts? Indeed we are referring to World Cancer Day. The day saw a braveheart, Tahira Kashyap, sharing a snap with her followers, and it was indeed nerve-wracking. Carrying her scar with utmost grace, Tahira wrote an inspiring message with it as well. However, her hubby Ayushmann Khurrana too shared a post which was indeed heart-touching.
Tahira who started battling with breast cancer in 2018 has been vocal about her hustles via the social media. And we know that Tahira is indeed a strong warrior. Her battle story is synonymous with courage and inspiration.
Here is a look at the post where she wears the scar of her battle with pride.

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❤️
Now, it seems that her better half, (and we would like to stress on the word “better half”) also supported her wife’s sheer strength and optimism.
Sharing her wife’s picture on his Instagram, he wrote a message which was indeed heartfelt. The message read:
“Paa le tu aisi Fateh. Samandar teri pyaas se darey. These lines are for you @tahirakashyap. Your scars are beautiful. You are a trailblazer. Keep inspiring the millions to fight their toughest personal battles. Be the lifer you are! #worldcancerday.”
Indeed a lot of emotional and mental courage is required to fight an ailment of this level. Hands down to Tahira’s spirit. Her story and journey are an inspiration to all the cancer fighters who are trying to move forward. Not to mention that the way Ayushmann Khurrana has shown his support for his beloved is truly commendable. Also, Ayushmann’s message for Tahira is indeed a reason why she won’t give up, don’t you think?
