After being diagnosed with ovarian cancer back in 2012, Manisha Koirala had to go through vigorous treatment for two years. However, her strength and positive attitude has paid off where she was declared free of the disease in 2014. She has now penned a book about her experiences where she explains she wanted her story to be told.
Talking about getting Cancer, Pinkvilla reports the actress express, “I feel it was a kind of gift for me from life. Whenever we face any difficulties, we get upset about it but I feel difficulties comes in our life to teach us something that we didn’t knew about ourselves. It gives something good in return.”
“When I was diagnosed with Cancer that time, I was traumatised but when I look back, I feel it has given me new perspective to see life in a different light and lot of hope about many things in life. It also made me realize that how important my life and health is to me,” she went on to say.
Talking of her book titled ‘Healed: How Cancer Gave Me a New Life”, Koirala was asked how emotional she felt whilst writing. “Indeed. it was because to be able to remember everything in detail and to be able to revisit those memories and stay with that was really painful. During that time, I used to feel that I will not finish writing this book. Most of the times, I felt this was a bad idea and I should not attempt writing so, many times, I stopped writing it.”
“I just wanted to tell my story to people. I wanted to encourage myself as well as other cancer patients who have been diagnosed, that thing kept me going plus, I had a great support system with publisher of my book,” she added.
