Ayushmann's reaction to wife Tahira's breast cancer news is inspiring
Cancer! The word itself gives me jitters. But Ayushmann Khurrana and Tahira Kashyap's attitude about this disease has changed my outlook towards life. It's been a little while when Tahira was diagnosed with breast cancer and she took to it to Instagram to share the news with a heartfelt post. Instead of getting frightened, they chose to deal with it in a mature way.
Ayushmann got the heart-breaking news on his birthday
During his recent-interview with Mid-Day, Ayushmann revealed that they got to know about her disease on his birthday. But instead of crying, they went on to watch 'Manmarziyaan'. Ayushmann-Tahira's mantra was to deal with it with a happy state. "We told ourselves, 'Okay, we've been diagnosed. We can't go home and cry about it. It's better to go for a film'," he said.
The idea was to celebrate the silver lining
Indeed, Ayushmann-Tahira's reaction to cancer diagnosis may sound weird to many people. But Ayushmann feels there was a silver lining to the dark cloud. He thought it was time to celebrate the early detection of the disease, which can prove pivotal. "I went without sleep for seven days. But, we had promised ourselves that we'd maintain a positive attitude," he added.
Aayushmann made sure to be with his warrior princess
It was a tough time for Ayushmann emotionally. But he made sure to stay strong and fight the big C with Tahira. While Tahira bravely shared the post about her disease last week, Ayushmann reposted it and wrote, "Last 7 days have been tough but we have decided to have a happy life state & fight this challenge. I'm proud of my warrior princess."
Ayushmann's overwhelming post for his warrior princess
Thanks for your wishes & support. Last 7 days have been tough but we have decided to have a happy life state & fight this challenge. Im proud of my warrior princess. 🙏🏻❤️ Repost @tahirakashyap with @get_repost ・・・ An opportunity to give competition to the Kardashians just went wasted! A week back I mentioned about ‘my badge of honour’ that I was going to receive. And I did and am happy to share about it with the intention of it being received with love. As that’s the only reason I am posting it. Love for self and gratitude for the universe. The picture might be disturbing for some, but these drains have become my dumbells for a few days. I was detected with DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) in my right breast with high grade malignant cells. Simply put stage 0 cancer/ pre-cancerous stage, with cancer cells multiplying in a contained area. The result I have become a half Indian version of Angelina Jolie (since only one breast was involved)! I told my doctor now is the time to give some competition to the Kardashians since Pamela is passé. But no one listened to me, so now I have a portion of my back tissue in my breast. Perhaps now I can do chin-ups with my breasts! Jokes apart, this obstacle has given me a new definition of life. Respect it’s unpredictability and have the faith and courage to be the hero of your own drama of life. The invincible human spirit is God like, gives you the courage to endure and the will to revive. There is nothing that human spirit can’t do. Also I want women of all ages to be aware. I am 35, and I was returned twice over from a mammogram. If any symptoms come up, think of it as a protective force and get yourselves examined. Also we are so obsessed with boobs. This mastectomy has left me with even more self love! Big, small, left or right inclined , gravity pulling or defying, or even none, each breast the presence or lack of it has a story to tell. Mine has made me a 2.0 version of myself! This post is dedicated to awareness, self love and resilience of a warrior that I know each one of us possesses❤️ #breastcancerawareness
