Manisha Koirala unveils specially designed mastectomy blouses

in INDIA, 24/02/2014

Bollywood actor Manisha Koirala, who recently battled with ovarian cancer, feels that the ailment is attached with a lot of baggage in our society.

"I respect life and the living a lot more now. I want to do my bit to raise awareness about cancer. I feel that we should stop attaching a lot of baggage to this ailment because it won't do anyone good," Manisha said at a cancer awareness event held here.

Manisha, who was last seen in 'Bhoot Returns', also unveiled the specially designed mastectomy blouses at the fourth edition of 'Design One', a social endeavour by Sahachari Foundation.  "Having gone through the experience of cancer myself, I feel support in any way or form is an important part of the healing process. I hope these specially designed blouses will give that much needed boost to women who have fought breast cancer and survived it," Manisha said about the initiative.

Dressed in a floral overcoat and a matching floral-neck piece, the award-winning actor was a sight of poise and grace as she answered queries about her health and her battle with cancer.
