An actress, talk show hostess, writer, educationist, food curator, activist and a mother, Nadia Jamil juggles all these roles with perfection.
The veteran actress has been battling cancer for some months now, sharing news of her devastating diagnosis in early April.
In a recent interview with Voice of America, Nadia talked about the challenges she faced during her cancer treatment.
“I cried a lot when my hair was cut off. But I felt proud and saw myself as a strong woman when I first looked at myself with a bald head in the mirror,” said Jamil, detailing her experience while undergoing chemotherapy. “My journey with cancer has made me much stronger,” she added.
Meet my radiation machine 💚#Cancer doesn't have to be ONLY a frightening lonely journey of pain. It can also be full of healing, nurturing, new friends and some dance! Especially if there is #Abba playing somewhere!#CancerNinja pic.twitter.com/c9B9jwpI36— Nadia Jamil (@NJLahori) August 21, 2020
She further added, “I would turn teary-eyed after reading the loving messages posted by my fans on social media,” she shared, crediting them with taking care of her and boosting her morale throughout her treatment.”
