Actress Gautami, during her inspiring speech recollected her brave cancer journey. She said no one can prepare you for cancer but we absolutely need to take complete responsibility in understanding oneself and fight this disease. She urged everyone to take pride in oneself and one’s journey in life. There was no history of cancer in her family.
Yet her emotional stress managed to manifest itself in the physical body and she realized the changes she needed to make to bring balance to her life. She further added that Cancer is a disease to be taken seriously but you don’t have to be defeated by it. Because the best weapon you have is your mind.
