Its the world Cancer Day again and this date cannot go by without recognising a passionate victim of Cancer Tahira Kashyap.
Kashyap as an inspiration for all, shared memories of her pre- fight with breast cancer, which is winning accolade not only in Bollywood but from all sections of the society.
World Cancer Day is an international day marked on February 4 to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment World Cancer Day was founded by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) to support the goals of the World Cancer Declaration, written in 2008.
On the world cancer day Kashyap shared a topless picture of herself on Instagram calling upon anyone to remove any stigma associated with the disease.
In the picture, Tahira does not hesitate from displaying the scars of her cancer surgery, turning them as her badges of honour.
Tahira who is the wife of Bollywood actor has been very vocal about her journey overcoming the disease and regularly post pictures on inspiring other cancer survivors and victims.
The primary goal of World Cancer Day is to significantly reduce illness and death caused by cancer and is an opportunity to rally the international community to end the injustice of preventable suffering from cancer.
World Cancer Day targets misinformation, raises awareness, and reduces stigma. Multiple initiatives run on World Cancer Day to show support for those affected by cancer.
One of these movements is #NoHairSelfie, a global movement to have “hairticipants” shave their heads either physically or virtually to show a symbol of courage for those undergoing cancer treatment.
Images of participants are then shared over social media. Hundred of events around the world also take place.
