Ayushmann Khurana’s wife Tahira Kashyap has always been vocal about her fighting cancer and had told about the diagnosis of stage 0 cancer in an Instagram post. In a post on Instagram, Tahira had revealed about the diagnosis and how her husband Ayushmann is standing with her on this difficult journey.
Tahira is an inspiration to many by being strong in this hard time and that is quite evident from her posts on social media. On the occasion of world cancer day, Tahira shared a bold and a brave message on social media that says she embraces all her scars.
Tahira wrote, “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 an 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.”

Her husband Ayushmann shared the picture too and wrote a motivational message in his own poetry style.
He wrote “Paa le tu aisi Fateh. Samandar teri pyaas se darey”. These lines are for you @tahira_k. Your scars are beautiful. You are a trailblazer. Keep inspiring the millions to fight their personal battles. Be the life you are! #WorldCancerDay
Paa le tu aisi Fateh.
Samandar teri pyaas se darey.

Tahira shared the first picture of her bald head recently. She wrote in the post that he had grown irritated of wigs and decided to ditch them for a natural look after chemotherapy resulted in severe hair loss.
