Actress and YouTuber Chhavi Mittal, who has been actively documenting her breast cancer journey following her diagnosis, on social media to raise awareness, has once again written a compelling note on why she chooses to celebrate her cancer scar every day.
Taking to her Instagram, the actress shared a set of four pictures where she is wearing a yellow coloured gown. In the first picture, she is flaunting her scar post the surgery with her back facing the camera.
“Scars. You can see the ones on the body.. but you’ll never see the ones etched on the bearer’s soul. Yesterday when I found the courage to flaunt this scar… there were some who flinched at the sight of it. I say, if the mere sight of it makes you flinch, imagine what I felt when it was given to me! But in my opinion, a man is not a complete man if he has the nerve to look down and admire a woman’s assets but is not brave enough to appreciate the effort she went through to save those assets. Some have also asked me if I’ll remove these scars with a laser or some such and I say never! They remind me of the fight I fought and the victory I achieved,” she said in caption.
Why would I ever want to hide these battle scars! That would be tampering with evidence! Proud to be a #cancersurvivor, she added.
