Author, filmmaker and cancer survivor, Tahira Kashyap has paved her path as a strong individual by communicating about self-love, acceptance and embracing one’s individuality with all flaws. Marking Breast Cancer Awareness month, Kashyap shared a reminder for all women across quarters with an inspiring post.
Taking to her social media page, Khurrana wrote, "Protect yourself. Value yourself. Nurture yourself. Have gone through this route hence can suggest please do regular self examinations. Younger age at times also doesn’t help. Do not become an ostrich if you feel something is wrong. The wrong only gets detected timely if you take action towards it. Action means letting the doctors examine you and to go through their protocol. YOU are very significant, worthy of adding lot of value! Never forget this please (sic).”
