Chhavi Mittal, who is recovering from br*ast cancer, has been vocal about her illness as well as her journey towards recovery on social media. The actress has received a lot of love along with some negative comments about her posts and photos.
Chhavi recently gave a befitting reply to the trolls who were criticizing her for showing her cleavage in one of her pictures shared on her social media account. The actress shared two pictures, from before and after surgery. Along with the pictures she also shared a note about how she received negative comments from some netizens on her Instagram handle.
Chhavi wrote, “Here are 2 pictures which I shared on social media. The first one is my br*ast cancer announcement post, while the second is documenting my post-cancer recovery and progress. In both pictures I’m wearing the exact same clothes. In both pictures my br*asts are a tad bit visible. In fact in the first one, I’ve taken my T-shirt off.
While the cancer announcement post may have more of my br*asts on display, emotional as I was (am) about the cancer, trying to fight the fear of what lay ahead.. whether I’ll ever be the same again, or will I lead a life of compromise… it incited a lot of love and applaud from netizens, with no mention (& rightly so) of the cleavage.
While fighting cancer, I mustered up all the courage that was within me, and decided that if anything, quality of life will be even better than it was pre-cancer.. coz after this fight if I survive, I’ll only be stronger than ever!
I shared this with the world and documented every stage of my recovery (still recovering, still share). But while everybody thought it courageous of me to announce it the way I did, the second picture invited hate comments saying “sab kuchh share nahi karna chahiye”, “this is not dignified”, “dont know what she’s trying to be” etc….
Let me tell you, dear women, coz obviously you don’t know it… Firstly, this is double standards. Secondly, the association that I have with my br*asts is beyond explanation. I have fought a very hard battle to save them.. to keep them strong.. to make sure they function the way they should and to ensure that they’re cancer free forever. While the forever struggle will last forever, I will continue to document my victories like I always have unabashedly. If anything, I’m so damn proud of my body, not because of the way it looks, but because of the strength it has shown me. Because of what it allows me to do. And even more proud of my br*asts, because only I know what they’ve endured and it’s no mean feat to not just be survivors, but fighters all the way.
