World Cancer Day 2019

Cancer for sure is a deadly disease and does not come with a notification. It has in its clutches all irrespective of their financial position, name or fame. It is tough for the family and friends of the cancer patient, but it is tougher for the cancer patient all the more. However, these celebs who are affected with the disease just proved it that the show must go on and have inspired millions of us to never give up on hope and fight with a smile on face and of course with lots of styles.

Here are the Bollywood celebs who fought the disease and inspired us:

1. Tahira Kashyap

Ayshmann Khurrana’s wife and filmmaker were diagnosed with breast cancer. Today she posted a motivating message on the Instagram and she simply has won our hearts here goes the message, “Today is my day! Wish you all a happy #worldcancerday and hope each one of us celebrates this day in an embracing way.

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❤️

4. Sonali Bendre

World Cancer Day… who would have thought it would become such a thing… but it has! And just the mere mention of the C word brings dread in the hearts of anyone who hears it. We fear it so much that we’d rather not talk about it… which is why it’s important to have a day where we pull out the band aid and help us deal with this disease. I was scared too, but soon realised that burying my head in the sand was not the way to deal with this. And so… with the little experience I have had, I urge you all to take the time to understand it. There’s more to cancer than being emotional or weak or even being called a fighter or a survivor. It requires you to study it, find out what works for you and to be diligent about your treatment. It requires days of strongly believing in oneself, of knowing that tomorrow will be better than today. It is not a fight against negative thoughts. It’s taking a stand to not give in, no matter what. Most importantly, it is about living every day, and not just surviving. Just taking it #OneDayAtATime makes it easier to #SwitchOnTheSunshine. #WorldCancerDay

A post shared by Sonali Bendre (@iamsonalibendre) on

Sonali Bendre is undergoing treatment in the US for a high- grade Metastatic cancer and in the last seven months since she is fighting the disease she has become a stronger person.

Many of us have been touched by cancer

Each cancer fighter has a story. Read stories

When life gives you questions, find the answers, and my write-up helps me to do this. I have thoughts and observe what happens around and this is my journey of accomplishing the task of travelling from thoughts and observations to words.

2. This is how brick streets are laid down in the Netherlands

Don’t you think that the way the Netherlands are laying down their brick streets looks amazing?
