Tahira Kashyap was detected of stage zero breast cancer last year. In an Instagram post, she revealed that she was undergoing a mastectomy. Recently, Tahira was interacting with the media at the promotional press conference of 8th edition of Pinkathon Mumbai 2019, along with Milind Soman in Mumbai.
Tahira revealed that her husband Ayushmann Khurrana supported her throughout her journey. She said, “You can’t share that pain or struggle with anyone else but when you have the support of your parents, husband, children, immediate family members, and friends, then the struggle doesn’t feel like a struggle. I think the journey becomes easy, lovable and joyous. All of us thrive on love, so I really wish that each one of us is surrounded by a lot of love.”
Tahira took to Instagram to share a picture with Milind Soman and listed the reasons for becoming the mascot of the 5km pinkathon. In her note, she wrote, “Two reasons to be the mascot for 5kms #pinkathon
A) Early breast cancer detection awareness & self-love
I could be lying about the order though ????
@pinkathonindia 15 December, let’s run!!”
Tahira Kashyap returned to work after months of treatment and is still under close medical attention and she regularly posts updates on Instagram, encouraging cancer awareness. “I really wish every husband and every wife is there for each other through thick and thin. I was really surprised and shocked when Milind (Soman) said that a lot of women, when they have cancer, especially in a rural belt, are abandoned by the men of the house. Everyone goes through struggle in their life but if you have the support of your people, family members, and loved ones, the journey becomes a bit easy and joyous. I really wish that all the men support their women as much as my husband did and that’s how it should be,” she said.
