B-town had a rather sad year with two of most successful woman in bollywood went through the darkest phase of their lives.
Sonali Bendre and Tahira kashyap battled through cancer last year and came out strong like never before.
Today being world cancer day, which talks about the awareness of this dreadful disease as well as scares the paitients, both these ladies shunned the scare and came out strong..
Tahira who battled breast cancer came out as a warrior and also walked the ramp last week.. she shared an immensely heartfelt note on social media showing her back and the scar that shows her chemo cut..
It does take a lot of courage to embrace and talk about it in open and Tahira has shown her strength in tough times.
Ayushmann wrote a beautiful poem for her wife which wooed our heart and we can only wish that the couple stays happy and smiling forever.
On the other hand the nation came to standstill when Sonali was diagnosed with cancer and her husband Goldie and son were her constant support at this time.
As Sonali has given one day at a time to her journey and is now back on track and has begun to shoot.
These two ladies make us proud with their ability to fight with the C word.
We bow down to you with respect and gratitude.
Apart from them Rishi Kapoor is also fighting this disease as well as Rakesh Roshan came out like a warrior.
How can we forget Manisha Koirala who was the first one to come out in open and talk about this disease and battle it. Then came Lisa Ray who is now mother of two kids via surrogacy.
Apart from that Emraan Hashmi’s lil boy too came out as a fighter..
B-town is indeed a world of limelight and full of glamour, but we can’t forget the fact that they too have a part of life wherein they struggle and come out strong.Kudos to the each and everyone who has battled the C word.

Via @bombaytimes: ‘The actress says she wanted to share her story to clear the myths around surrogacy. “I wanted to share our struggles and triumph. Having been open about my cancer journey and receiving so much unconditional support, sharing this moment of happiness feels right. Hopefully, our story can give hope to others who are struggling to have kids. Life throws you both challenges and miracles, and I’m unspeakably grateful for my miracle daughters,” she said. So, what plans does she have for her girls in future? “I will teach my girls to be resilient, strong, open, and that they can achieve anything they set their hearts on. There are no boundaries, except the ones in our minds and children have no idea of what they can and cannot achieve. Bringing up the next generation to be kind is the greatest chance we have for a better future. I can’t resist whispering in their tiny ears — ‘The Future is Female’,” she asserted.’ Images @aligphoto MUH @jomakeupartist PR manager @bazinga_ent

World Cancer Day… who would have thought it would become such a thing… but it has! And just the mere mention of the C word brings dread in the hearts of anyone who hears it. We fear it so much that we’d rather not talk about it… which is why it’s important to have a day where we pull out the band aid and help us deal with this disease. I was scared too, but soon realised that burying my head in the sand was not the way to deal with this. And so… with the little experience I have had, I urge you all to take the time to understand it. There's more to cancer than being emotional or weak or even being called a fighter or a survivor. It requires you to study it, find out what works for you and to be diligent about your treatment. It requires days of strongly believing in oneself, of knowing that tomorrow will be better than today. It is not a fight against negative thoughts. It's taking a stand to not give in, no matter what. Most importantly, it is about living every day, and not just surviving. Just taking it #OneDayAtATime makes it easier to #SwitchOnTheSunshine. #WorldCancerDay

Asked my dad for a picture this morning. Knew he wouldnt miss gym on surgery day. He is probably the strongest man I know. Got diagnosed with early stage squamous cell carcinoma of the throat a few weeks ago, but he is in full spirits today as he proceeds to battle it. As a family we are fortunate and blessed to have a leader like him. . Love you Dad.
