Today is World Cancer Day and to mark the day, Cancer fighters, as well as survivors from across the world, including celebrities, have been taking it to their social media accounts to share their thoughts, stories and their respective journeys of their fight with cancer.
In the last quarter of the year 2018, Tahira announced with all her followers, the news of her breast cancer. With her treatment going on in full swing, we were hoping that Tahira will soon announce the good news with us that she is now cured of cancer, only to our dismay when we got to know that the star wife-cum-director’s cancer has advanced to a level 1! But health isn’t posing as an hindrance for Tahira as only a while back, she posted an inspiring message for her followers, wherein, she is seen showing off her beautifully scarred bare-back.

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❤️
