The last few days have been inspiring in more ways than one. It started with Sonali Bendre and Tahira Kashyap showing us how they haven’t given up the battle to cancer.

Almost a month after the #10YearChallenge went viral, Malayalam actor Mamta Mohandas who had Hodgkin’s lymphoma (cancer of the lymph nodes) recently took to her social media to share her journey of growth and learnings.

The 34-year-old shared experience that she has learned in the past 10 years and how she fought the big Cancer. Mamta’s case reminds us to appreciate the good things we have.

She stressed on the need to be there, be kind to those who are going through a rough patch: ‘2009 was the year that changed everything for me and impacted every plan my family had for us,’ the award-winning actor wrote.

‘Last 10 years has been quite a challenge. As I look back, come 2019, I’m proud to realise that I have fought tirelessly, stayed strong and survived.’

‘Staying positive and strong for several years is very hard but if I have done it, there are a few people behind it.’

She was one of the first few actors down South who spoke positively about her struggles and comeback. Mamta relocated to Los Angeles, US for her clinical treatment but did not stop working in India. During this time, she also filed for divorce. She did not let any of this affect her spirit as she continued to work and bag multiple awards. She watched her health, her diet, surrounded herself with people who lifted her and came out stronger, a winner.

And how did she do it?

In Mamta’s words, ‘A smile can change the world. don’t let anyone take yourself away from you.’
